Crafting with my little boy is one of the biggest joys in my life. Our craft collection has grown over the years from a few crayons to various types of paper, stickers, a miniature pink glue gun and of course, glitter.
Making a dream catcher is a really fun kid’s craft. There are so many variations that you can do to suit your little one’s style. Similarly you don’t need to be a pro crafter to make this. Whilst the younger children will likely need some help with the scissor steps, the decoration steps can be a time where they can really let their creative juices flow!
What you’ll need
Cute the centre hole out of the paper plate.
Using the hole punch, press 6-10 holes around the inner circle and 2 at the top.
Paint the plate with glue then cover in glitter. You might want to repeat this step twice for a bold colour. I also added a few diamantes for extra sparkle!
Note – pens / pencil crayons also work well to decorate the plate.
Once dry, attach a piece of string to the top 2 holes to use as a hook.
Cut a long piece of string and thread through the holes in the centre circle. Add beads at different stages of this process.
Tip – don’t worry about following an exact pattern with this, it can be completely random.
Press an extra 3-4 holes in the bottom of the dream catcher and tie various lengths of string to each hole.
Using glue, attach 2-3 feathers to the end of each string piece. You can also add some beads before gluing the feathers.
Wait for all the glue to dry and then hang your dream catcher.
