This DIY project is easier than you might think, and is a great way to spend an hour or so to get your hands moving and make your brain happy with a personal project (and could also be a great handmade business idea!). Read on to find out how to weave a traditional dreamcatcher net.

I must admit, at first I thought it looked like a pretty daunting task, but after reading through these great online tutorials I think it’s totally achievable and definitely not as tricky as it looks. Dreamcatcher Weaving Tutorial This tutorial by Gwen McMullin from the UK on This Fashion Is Mine goes through step-by-step how to create your own dreamcatcher, including great instructions on weaving the inner web. Dreamcatcher Weaving Tutorial This tutorial to make a dreamcatcher Earring Caddy by Misty Spinney on Brit+Co has great instructions, and they encourage some free-styling in your project, which we love! Dreamcatcher Weaving Tutorial Kat of We Can Re-Do It in Brooklyn has posted a really in-depth tutorial for making your own Dreamcatcher with easy to follow step-by-step photo instructions, and she encourages doing this with your kids! Dreamcatcher Weaving Tutorial Carrie Beachey has posted a Dreamcatcher tutorial on The Fibre Nest which includes this fab diagram to help get your head around the weaving technique. Dreamcatcher Weaving Tutorial This tutorial on Promise Land Ranch shows how to weave a very intricate web for your Dreamcatcher, which I think is really important to include for those who want to spend some time on their piece and make something really detailed.

I hope this round-up of Dreamcatcher Weaving Tutorials has shown you how easy it is to create these the “hard” way, and inspires you to make your own!
