12 Original Ideas Of Dream Catchers that You Can DIY

As I said before, I love, love, love, dream catchers. I own a few, in more forms than what you are used to, a phone case and a tattoo, beside your usual. I also made one and wrote a tutorial for it here. I’m always happy to find new ideas for original dream catchers, and I’m really itching to make some myself. Most of them look like they’re a piece of cake to make, but I’m sore the pro have a few secrets down their sleeves.

The dream catchers originate from Ojibwe people, and their ancient legends. “Storytellers speak of the Spider Woman, known as Asibikaashi; she took care of the children and the people on the land. Eventually, the Ojibwe Nation spread to the corners of North America and it became difficult for Asibikaashi to reach all the children. So the mothers and grandmothers would weave magical webs for the children, using willow hoops and sinew, or cordage made from plants. The dreamcatchers would filter out all bad dreams and only allow good thoughts to enter our mind. Once the sun rises, all bad dreams just disappear.” – according to Wikipedia.

The good thing about making your own dream catcher is that you don’t always need a circle to make it, they can get caught in anything as long as you believe in them, your bad dreams will vanish. And you don’t need feathers either, to make the long tails, just add a few beads and colorful ribbons and it’s gonna look fabulous. So here are some unusual dream catchers, or just original ideas on how to make them, and some tutorials too. If you like dream catchers as much as I do, you’ll enjoy these ones.
