What kind of string do you use to make a dreamcatcher?
Choose a type of string.
String is woven onto the hoop to create the dreamcatcher’s web. It should be strong, but thin. Choose waxed nylon string or simulated sinew. The string used is traditionally white or clear, but you could also choose a colored type of string.
What material is used for dream catchers?
Step One: Select Your Dreamcatcher Materials
Traditionally, the round hoops of a dreamcatcher were made from willow or sinew, but you can use any type of wood or metal hoop, which can be purchased easily and cheaply at a craft store. While they can be any size, a good starting size is 5 to 8 inches in diameter.
Is it okay to make your own dream catcher?
Making a dreamcatcher is a fun project you can do by yourself or with friends. You will need a hoop, suede lace, string, and decorative materials to create a basic dreamcatcher. Start the dreamcatcher by wrapping the hoop with suede lace. Then create the web by weaving the string along the frame of the hoop.
