Homemade Dreamcatcher to make sleeping easier!


  • 1 Large ring (I used a lid with the centre taken out)
  • 1 Roll of Ribbon
  • 1 Knitted Doily that will fit inside your circle (I got mine from the charity shop)
  • 1 Wool
  • 1 Scissors
  • 1 Assorted Beads (big enough to thread)
  • 1 Lot of Feathers and anything else you want to hang
  • 1 Hot Glue Gun


  1. Wrap the ribbon around the ring to cover the plastic. Glue a piece of ribbon at the top to use for hanging.
  2. Cut pieces of wool any length you want your dreamcatcher to be. Tie one end of the wool pieces to the circle.
  3. Hot glue the Doily inside the circle.
  4. String the beads through the wool pieces (it maybe hard to put the beads on but a tip is to wet the end and pinch it so it's thin) and knot top and bottom. Add any other decorations onto the string.
  5. Wrap the ends of the wool around the end of the feather and hot glue into place.
  6. Hot Glue beads around the Doily.
  7. When it's dry hang and enjoy!

  • A very pretty and simple craft


  • Great for the kids to create, but a bit too simple to make me want one. Sorry


  • Looks store bought, love it!


  • Simply beautiful. Thank you for sharing this lovely project.


  • ahhh using a doily is an intelligent option… good one!


  • I have tried and tried to make my own dream catcher many times. It’s so hard! Happy to have found an easy option


  • I love this idea especially when the kids have nightmares


  • Aww, my nana made dream catchers. She taught me once and it was great. Memories.


  • great idea – what sort of lid did you use? My sister made us some dreamcatchers and the metal rings were the most expensive parts I believe


  • That looks cool we made these with Willow tree branches


  • Wow that look fun. I’ve never used a hot glue gun. Might have to get one and give it a try.


  • I love dream catchers and have always had one in the kids bedrooms. This one looks lovely and so much easier to make then most


  • Your dream catcher looks lovely. Thank you.


  • Dream catchers are lovely. They can catch and get rid of nightmares as well (so I’m told), if that helps. Thank you for sharing.


  • How cool. My daughter loves dream catchers. Now she can make her own
