Make a Dream-catcher Pendant!
You’ll need 16 gauge (or 14 gauge) craft wire to make the dream-catcher base. Hold the wire bundle but do not cut it. Use the looping pliers to create a small loop at the open end of the wire. Leave 1 cm of wire below the loop and bend the wire to 90 degrees. Leave the loop and 1 cm bent part and create a round base with the wire. The base can be of any size you prefer.
After forming the round base; coil the open end of the wire around the 1 cm part below the loop. Cut off extra wire from the bundle once the coiling is done.
Hammer the round wire band to give the band a nice finished look.
Select a yarn for the dream-catcher weaving. Grab the yarn bundle and tie a knot around the base band, towards the loop and coiled part. Leaving a small amount of yarn intact, wrap the yarn around the band once. Draw the yarn through the loop created between the yarn and the band.
Pull the wrapped yarn to make sure that the wrapped part is nice and tight around the band.
Continue to wrap and tighten wraps until reaching near the first knot.
For the second layer, wrap the current yarn around the previous yarn layer (like the previous yarn was wrapped around the wire band).
Continue to wrap (or weave) towards the center of the band. Keep wrapping and creating layers until there is a really small hole in the center. Once the yarn reaches the center, tie a tight knot and cut off the extra yarn.
Select colored felt fabrics to make flowers. Cut out spiral-shaped patterns from the felt. You can keep it plain or create a scallop border on the spiral pattern. Roll the spiral felt from its outer end and continue to roll towards the center. Apply hot glue on the center part or simply stitch to secure the roll. There! Make 2 or 3 of these rolled flowers.
Take a craft feather and attach a bead tip on the hollow shaft of the feather. Prepare 2 or 3 more craft feathers with bead tips. You will need a jump ring to attach each feather to the dream catcher band.
Attach the felt flowers and the feathers to the dream catcher. Cut out some leaf patterns from green colored felt and attach them between the flowers.
The pendant is now ready! Wear it with a jewelry chain or string and filter in all the sweet and good dreams!
