Featured on the Home Habits segment of EMTV’s Haus and Home program was a simple DIY – Dream Catcher.
Originally created by American Indians, dream catchers are believed to bring good or positive dreams to those who hang them above their beds.
Dream catchers usually consist of a small wooden hoop covered in a net or web of natural fibers, with meaningful sacred items like feathers and beads attached, hanging down from the bottom of the hoop.
However, in this particular episode of Home Habits, we see segment host, Izabel make a simple DIY dream catcher with material you can find in your local supermarkets or craft supply stores.
Things you’ll need:
Knick Knacks (beads/Jewels/etc…)
What to do:
Use your hands and plyers, bend your hanger into a circular shape.
Wrap the entire hanger with wool. This covers the entire hanger and gives it a pop of color.
Using a different coloured piece of wool, wrap it in and out of your hanger so that it looks much like a spider’s web.
Make sure you wrap the ends twice over so the wool isn’t loose.
Once you’re done tie the end of your wool so that it is secured and tight.
Using a different colored wool thread beads or tie your knick knacks to one end of your piece of wool with the other that will be tied to your dream catcher.
And you’re done.
Here’s a look at segment host Izabel putting this simple DIY dream catcher together on Home Habits.
