Dreamcatchers are such a fun craft for kids. They’re easy to make, don’t need many supplies, and can be customized for so many different occasions. This spring dreamcatcher is especially fun because you can forage for most of the supplies yourself!
Enjoy the spring weather, take a nature walk, and collect items for your dreamcatchers. We just walked around the block and ended up with more than enough supplies. I avoided letting my kids pick anyone else’s flowers, but we collected a lot of dandelions, leaves, pinecones, and some seed pods. Then, we went to our own garden for daffodils and other little flowers. Learning how to make a dreamcatcher has never been simpler or more fun!
- Embroidery hoop (I used 7″)
- Twine, yarn, or any other string
- Leaves, pinecones, flowers, feathers, or any other bits of nature
1. Separate the embroidery hoop pieces and tie the string around the inner hoop.
