POM POM DREAM CATCHER
by Vicki Runnegar
Sweet dreams… you will have with this fun colourful take on a dream catcher! It will send all of your bad dreams far far away or at the very least be a cheerful addition to your space.
Once you get the hang of the weaving technique, this is a pretty straightforward tutorial. It can take a bit of time though as it takes a few steps to get over the finish line.
Kids will have fun making a dream catcher out of found objects – a flexible branch can be fashioned into the ring and feathers and shells and driftwood can be dangled off.
What you need:
- Wool Yarn 8 or 10ply, I used this multicolour wool because for just one ball of wool you get a nice array of colours.
- 18cm diameter metal hoop (available from local craft store)
- PVA glue
- Colourful plastic beads
- Cardboard to make pompoms
- Yarn needle
There is a lot of room for adaptation here, so have fun with experimenting with colour, size, pompom and tassel configuration – let your imagination be the guide.
