Dream Catchers Part 2

Today's dream catchers have an edgier look to them using less supplies. You will need a ring, at least 30 yards of leather strips, a stick (we found ours in the park), and feathers. We dipped the white version of this in gold to give it a little bling bling but as you can see the tonal black on black version also works! 

This part may or may not be the worst part of the whole process, as letting go of your leather for one second can lead to the whole thing unravelling (trust us, this happened multiple times!). To avoid that you can wrap it using multiple pieces and tie them together. That will also give it a more rugged look, which works for this style of dream catcher. 

There is no right or wrong way to attach the stick. Using your leather, fasted the ends of your stick to the ring by wrapping the leather around the stick and tying it to the ring. This may take a few tries but once it is secured, hang the ring on the wall to give you optimal measuring capabilities. 

Start cutting longer strips of leather and knotting them onto the stick. Depending on your desired length(s) you may want to start with the longest piece first and gradually cut shorter pieces. You can always trim at the end, so if this sounds too tedious just cut, tie, and trim later. 

To add a little texture we glue-gunned some feathers to the ends of the leather strips. The white version has gold-dipped feathers, but these all black ones are pretty chic on their own. You can also wrap a piece of leather around the base of your feather if you want to hide the glue. The glue does not really show up on the black so we were able to get away without wrapping each feather.
