Paper Plate Dream Catcher

  • Use the craft scissors to cut out the center of the paper plate leaving only the outer rim intact.

  • Make 3/4 inch cuts evenly around the outside of the paper plate.

  • Take the string and wrap it back and forth around the plate using the cuts to hold the string in place. Use whatever pattern you think looks good and continue weaving the string to create a design inside the plate (small knots were used here to keep the string in place.)

  • Use strips of washi tape to make “beads” on the string inside the dream catcher. Do this by ripping off pieces of tape 2” – 3” long and wrap them around the string. Make as many as you think look good.

  • Use a few rolls of tape to cover the outside edge of the paper plate. This will cover up the cuts in the plate where the string is woven through as well as make a cool border.

  • Get out your four pieces of scrapbook paper. On the back of each piece, draw a feather about 4 – 5 inches long and 2 – 3 inches wide.

  • Cut out the feathers.

  • Cut four pieces of string about a foot long. Tie one end around the bottom of the feathers.

  • Lay out the dreamcatcher with the feathers coming down from the bottom. Trim the string to the size you like and use tape to secure these ends on the back of the dreamcatcher.
  • Use a few more strips of washi tape to make more beads on the strings that are hanging down.
