How to Make a Dream Catcher

Learn how to make a paper plate dream catcher craft with a few simple supplies. You can learn through directions and pictures and a short video at end of post showing how to do it. Let’s get started!

For this craft you will need

  • Paper plate

  • Scalpel

  • Purple feathers

  • Pink and blue pearls

  • Blue thread

  • Glue

  • Felt and wooden decorative flowers

  • Hole punch

How to make craft

  • Take the paper plate and draw a circle in the center. If you can cut it without drawing you can skip the drawing step. Cut the circle using scissors.
  • Make some holes on the inner side using hole punch.
  • Start knitting the blue thread in the holes, putting it in every opposite one. Glue the thread on the beginning and on the end.
  • Then cut a few holes on the bottom and two holes on the top. Put some thread on the top so you can hang the decorations and leave some longer threads in the bottom holes for the feathers.
  • Put one pink and one blue pearl on every feather and tie the feather with the thread. You can also glue it but it’s totally up to you.
  • I used a star and then glued some pearls on every corner and feather on the bottom. Just play a little, you can use a lot of different color combinations.
  • In the middle threads glue some decorative flower,
  • Now you have a completed dream catcher!

My name is Jodi Carlson, I am a mom, wife, & web designer and come with 25 years of GS experience. I am now sharing my experiences and helping other Girl leaders be great and successful and shape today’s girls to be the leaders of tomorrow. I was blessed with a Son in March of 2015 and stepped down as a full time girl leader, but missed planning and volunteering, so I decided after 25 years I have so many ideas to inspire girls and help leaders so I choose to build this blog and it has grown into a resource beyond GS, I am reaching girl leaders in many organizations.
