Dream Catchers are from Native American lore; they trap bad dreams and let the good dreams filter down to the sleeper For each dream catcher you will need: a bendable twig about 1 foot long a few inches of thin wire some twine beads with large holes a few feathers Use thin wire to tie the ends of a twig together to make a hoop. Have an adult make a hoop from a twig. To do this, wrap a short length of thin wire around the overlapping ends. Cut a few feet of twine. Tie one end of the twine to the twig hoop. String a few beads onto the twine and push the beads toward the tied end. Wrap the twine around the other side of the hoop. String a few more beads on the twine and then wrap the twine around the far side of the hoop. Repeat until you have an interesting webbing design. Tie a short length of twine on the hoop. String a bead or two on it and then tie a feather onto the end. Repeat this a few times (2 or 3 hanging feather strings look nice). Hang the dream catcher near your bed you can find this craft an more like it on enchanted crafts my daughters an I work alot of crafts when it starts getting cool out

I love dream catchers, i actually have two, one that a friend made me and one that i bought because it was purple, I think they are so beautiful, to me they are a symbal of happiness and peace, I have never seen one made out of twigs though, i guess that would give it a more authentic look...
