I’m happy to share another crafty creation with you today, a CROCHET DREAM CATCHER!
When we moved into our current home, I had a vision of filling the wall above our bed with homemade dream catchers. About a month ago I stumbled upon a large bag of embroidery hoops at a yard sale and jumped for joy! I knew these hoops could serve as the foundation for a crochet dream catcher. It was exactly the inspiration I needed to begin this project.
The Legend Of The Dream Catcher
“The Ojibwa (Chippewa) believe that night is full of both good and bad dreams. When a dream catcher is hung above the place where you sleep it moves freely in the night air and catches the dreams as they drift by. The good dreams, knowing their way, pass through the opening in the center of the webbing while the bad dreams, not knowing the way, are caught in the webbing and destroyed at the first light of the morning sun.” (dreamcatcher.com)

CROCHET DREAM CATCHER
To begin, I crocheted a simple trivet. You can find the pattern here.
You’ll notice how the trivet fits just inside the hoop.
Next, I wrapped the hoop with yarn.
To continue, I began attaching each point to the wrapped hoop.
And to finish, I added tassels and sewed embellishments!
