Amateur Art: Dream Catcher

I promised a little while ago I’d show you some of my ‘crazy cabinet’ creations (one of my kitchen cabinets is filled with junk that comes in handy sometimes, when I’m in the crafty mood.)  This particular creation I’m actually quite happy with.  If you like dream catchers, or maybe know somebody who does, try making one.  If I was able to make it, anybody can.  The basic “web” is really not that difficult to master, and the process of spinning is very relaxing.  I watched a number of “how to” youtube videos on dream catchers, I’m posting a link to the one I picked and used.  It has all the instructions you need.  (A note: I didn’t use either sinew or leather, just different kinds of thread.  Worked fine.  Used 'memorable' champagne corks for decoration!)  Happy spinning, and sweet dreams!

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
