Retired - Winter Solstice Dream Catcher Ornament

PROJECT C8001
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
This ornament combines indigenous and contemporary elements to create a meaningful emblem with nature-inspired embellishments and wintery accent colors.
Instructions
The hoop measures 4.5 inches in diameter, and the completed dream catcher hangs approximately 11 inches when strung from a 2 inch ribbon loop.
  1. Please watch the video: How to Make a Dream Catcher Hoop. In this video, you will learn how to wire wrap your hoop, cover it with faux suede, and weave the inner webbing of the dream catcher.
  2. Once your dream catcher hoop is complete, please watch the video: How to Embellish a Dream Catcher Hoop. In this video, you will see how to decorate your hoop with ribbons, charms, and stone beads.
This project is winter themed, but you can create your own variation using colors and charms of your choice. Be sure to add glue to all your knots!
