Hey Friends! This beauty is my second attempt at a homemade crochet dream catcher. There’s a backstory here. I’ve had this vision of filling the wall behind my bed with homemade dream catchers since we moved into our current home. I was lucky enough to score a large bag of embroidery hoops at a yard sale recently and knew they could serve as foundation for starting this project.

My first crochet dream catcher was much simpler than this one. I used chunky yarn which allowed me to work it up super fast. This time around, I chose to create a more detailed piece. It was so much fun to make!


I followed the same process as the last piece. To start, I crocheted a simple doily. You can find the pattern for the one I used here. I used acrylic yarn in a peach color, and a size H crochet hook. You can see that it fits just inside this 12 inch embroidery hoop.

Next, I wrapped the embroidery hoop with yarn. I chose to use a cream color.


With the last dream catcher I attached each point working my way around the hoop. With this one I used a different technique to ensure the spacing was perfect. First, I attached the top and bottom points, and then the sides to form a diamond.


Next, I attached the middle two points along each edge.


To finish, I attached the remaining points.


See how nice the spacing turned out by using that method? Moving on, I began the bead work. I arranged them in trios for an eye catching look. I was going to add more but decided otherwise. I wanted the intricacy of the doily to shine through.


As for the tassels, I wanted to try something different. I single crocheted 7 strips in varying lengths, then tied them to the bottom of the hoop. I weaved the ends into the back of the strips.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
