Bohemian Dreamcatchers


Dreamcatchers are traditional Native American amulets used to catch and dispel
 nightmares. Their web-like interior is meant to allow good  dreams to pass through
 and bad dreams to become entangled and caught. Traditionally, dreamcatchers
 were made from natural materials such as willow and sinew, and decorated
 with beads, feathers, and small personal objects.    

Today many dreamcatchers are made from modern and synthetic materials,

 but my personal favorites remain to be those that incorporate mostly organic 
materials.  Bohemian and earthy, they add a unique and personal touch to 
dreamy Boho decor. Sweet dreams!

(Tip: Wrap a piece of masking tape around the end of the yarn to make it easier for a child to “weave”.): 5. Thread the yarn through in a triangular pattern. (should be every fourth hole).
