Today we’re excited to share with you how to make a dreamcatcher. This is a hugely popular craft and one that you are bound to love.
They look amazing floating on the breeze and they come with sweet dreams guaranteed! Dreamcatchers are associated with Native Americans. They hang the dreamcatcher over their beds for protection.
It is said that good dreams pass through the dreamcatcher. They slip through the outer holes and slide down the soft feathers.
The bad dreams, however, get tangled in the dreamcatcher. They perish with the first light of the new day.
