Pick-Me-Up Dreamcatcher – Netflix

| posted in: Craft Styling | 4


So, your child is home sick from school and is starting to feel better. You don’t want her to exert a lot of energy by running and jumping and playing. Instead, here’s a fun craft project to do together while lounging on the couch watching a Netflix movie.  

Materials you’ll need:

Embroidery hoop (9 inch size)

Two skeins of yarn (2 different colors)

Colored pieces of felt

Letter beads (optional)

Needle with an eye large enough for yarn

Multi-colored pom-poms


Dream Catcher 1 - KLS

How to do it:

1. Wrap 2/3 of the embroidery hoop with one color yarn and the other 1/3 with a second color of yarn. Tie to secure ends.

2. Using the needle, thread small pom-poms onto a 6-7 foot piece of yarn. Tie one end of the yarn onto the embroidery hoop and crisscross the yarn across the embroidery hoop creating a spider web-like star burst. Tie the other end of the yarn onto the embroidery hoop.

3. Cut out hearts, stars and feathers from felt. Make mini pom-poms from yarn.  (Here is a great video tutorial to show you how to make yarn pom-poms: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0q-QHC_2cw.)

4. Cut five 18” pieces of yarn and tie a knot at one end of each piece. Using the needle, thread yarn through the felt shapes, pom-poms and even letter beads to personalize your dream catcher. Then tie the unknotted ends of the yarn onto the embroidery hoop. Cut a 3” piece of yarn, tie it around the top of the embroidery hoop in a loop and hang over your bed.
