I Made It Myself: Dream Catcher

For years I have wanted a dream catcher.  I thought about buying one, but then I would always think that I should try to make one.  And that is how the years went by without me having a dream catcher :-0

A couple of weeks ago I decided that I wasn't go to procrastinate any longer, and so I searched for on-line tutorials and found lots of them.  I began practicing with craft items I had on hand using the tutorials as guides.  Once I decided that I sort of knew what I was doing, I took the plunge and spent a little less than $6.00 on supplies and made my dream catcher.

For a total beginner, I think it came out pretty good, and I love knowing that I made it myself!
