I've made a few dream catchers, and I tend to use the finer Willow almost like twigs that are a decent length, if they are too stiff, soak them in water for a little and while they will soften then you can make a circle and bind the two ends together with organic hemp, I try to decorate mine with natural items, feathers that are lying around from the birds, pop a hole through dried star anise and thread these on etc.

Obviously try and use any twigs etc that the tree has naturally shed and is on the ground if visiting parks etc, I am fortunate to have a willow tree in my garden, however due to the size that it grows and I haven't got a massive garden, we do have to trim the willow so that it does not get to out of hand, but we do explain to the tree that we need to trim it, and the reasons why and also thank and honour the willow for it's trimmings.

Just a thought, but you can use the wooden hoops that are used for embroidery, that is what I have used, they were fairly inexpensive too. The hoop from an old lampshade is another good one. Last embroidery hoop I got for some needlework was at a big discount store called Walmart here in the states.

I think it's Moonpetal who is the dream catcher maker...she has a page on FB too, which I think she's added in the Sell Your Wares section near the bottom of the forum. She may well be able to help you.

Much love

Hi Chezzielou

hmmmm not sure - do you have a Hobbycraft store near you they may be able to help, and I think they are online too.

I have purchased a few ready to make kits in a shop called The Works too, but that has all the bits in the kit.

Not sure if this is in right place but does anyone know where i can find reasonably cheap hoops for making dream catchers?

I would be so grateful!
