Adorable Floral Dream Catcher Craft
Dream catchers have become the “it” bedroom decoration. Have you always want to make one for yourself or a friend? I made this Adorable Floral Dreamcatcher Craft for my daughter. She originally made one in school with a paper plate and yarn.
In all honesty, I do love it when they bring home crafts. Really, I do! But this school dreamcatcher craft has been haunting me. It is in her room, on her shelf. It looks like a big plate wrapped up in yarn. Her room is already cluttered, and this just makes it seems worse. Know this mama has some OCD issues.
I really want to make her a super cute and chick Dreamcatcher. We did this craft together, and it was a lot of fun.
There is so much to love about this dreamcatcher, including the bright scrap-busting fabric and the easy yarned-over center.
With the popularity of these beauties only rising, the price tag is quickly following suit. I took to case and point and made them with my frugal-minded self. I didn’t it all, without spending an arm and a leg. You may also have a craft stash like myself and will be able to pull from your supplies.
Below you will find a fun Floral Dreamcatcher Craft Video Tutorial as well as handwritten instructions below.

Floral Dreamcatcher Craft Directions:
Pre-made plastic hoops are easy and work great for dream catchers. The size of the hoop is really dependent on how big you want your dreamcatcher to be.
First, you are going to want to tighten the embroidery hoop. You can use both parts as shown or one piece for a thinner dream catcher look.
Grab the pink yarn and double knot the end of the yarn to the top of the hoop. Wind the yarn around the hoops over and over again. Once the hoop is completely covered in yarn, cut the end as a double knot at the top. Don’t worry about the loose ends, the flowers will cover these.
Take dark pink and light pink yarn & tie them together at the top of the loop. Grab the dark pink yarn and wrap it across the hoop a few times in a random pattern. Make sure you tight off your dark pink yarn in a knot to secure your piece as you are working. Repeat with the light pink yarn and then end again by securing with a knot.
I would suggest placing the flowers in this pattern: extra small, small, medium, large, medium, small, extra small. You can see how I did it in the picture above. Hot glue the flowers at the top of the hoop, covering the screw and the loose yarn ends.
Time to Make Your Dreamcatcher’s Tails
There are 13 tail ends in this dream catcher. To make these; measure and cut the yarn and ribbon to about 2x the height of the hoop. For the thinner yarn pieces, cut two pieces and tie them as one.
Next, you are ready to attach the tail yarns/ribbons, grab the length of the ribbon, and fold it in half, creating a loop. Feed the loop under and through the middle of the embroidery hoop. Take the loose ends and put them through the yarn loop & pull to tighten. Repeat until you have 13 ‘tails’ total. Arrange at the bottom of the embroidery hoop, so both sides are even.
Comb through the yarn and ribbon with your fingers to smooth. Take the scissors and give the tail pieces a trim to create a ‘V’ shaped pattern.
Arrange the feathers so the large one is in the middle and the smaller 2 to the sides. Using a small bit of hot glue, attach to the ends of the yarn tails.
