This nature inspired dream catcher is inexpensive and makes a really cute wall decorative.
-A pair of scissors
-Preferably use a wooden hoop, if you get a plastic one make sure you paint it brown so that its not very conspicuous through the branches
-Use a bigger needle
-Though colorful feathers might solve the purpose, natural feathers would look the best
-For marking equal segments on the hoop, you can fold a paper 4-5 times and use the creases as measurement
Honestly, for being an India Indian, this is as close as I've seen a dreamcatcher made that looks like the traditional one I saw as a young girl before they became a tourist thing. There are major differences in how it's finished though, in order to make it a "real" working dreamcatcher.
I have such a big collection of feathers that i find while walking my dog, pheasant tail feathers are so pretty and i find a lot of these in my local apple orchards, im going to make this spider web one tomorrow, definitely feeling inspired, thank you =)
This is a great tutorial! But, I had a thought....if I run out of thread or whatever medium I'm using for the web....I would slip on a bead or other decorative item and then the knot isn't so noticeable. Thank you for a great tutorial. (sliding a bead on before tying the knot and then pulling the bead over the knot hides it well.)
I am so glad to have found your tutorial on how to make the spider web. I like how you demonstrate and stop and give us a chance to really look and see how it is done. I am looking forward to more of your videos. You do have beautiful hands.Student Patrice.
+Amaya Perez Dominguez i can understand, i faced the same problem...
what you can do is, fold your thread into a loop or a small yarn ball, that'll make it easier to work with.
Or maybe like suggested by one of the viewers, you can hang a spider, ba bead or any charm at the knot point..
Hi there, I love the dream catcher & the tutorial is fantastic! Where can I find the wooden loop? As all the embroidery ones I located have the brass bit at the top! I can't seem to find them just plain wood. I am in Aus. so I will need to order some off line if possible. Thanks & keep up with your creativity! It's beautifully inspiring stuff :))))
+Charlotte Caws The embroidery loop is made up of two circular rings... The outer ring has that brass clamp.. the inner ring is plain... Try going to the store again...
Hope that helps..
All the best😊👍
Great tutorial! I've been making dream catchers for a few years now. nice to finally see a actual spider wed tutorial!
Keep it up, I love the sticks. Should leave a small hole in the middle though, need somewhere for the good dreams
to pass through. ;-) Oh and you have really pretty hands. :-)
Any chance you might do a video on how to do some of the more advanced dream catchers. I tried doing one with the two in one and then doing the webbing on the outside. Which in the end looked like a lobster trap. But I do love your videos keep it up Eh (*^o^*)
2016 Workforce 100: Ranking the World’s Top Companies for HR.
American Express, which has made the list all three years, takes the top spot in this year’s list of top companies for HR.
To excel at everything from talent management to recruiting to benefits to diversity is not an easy task. To shine in those areas year after year is exemplary. Now in its third year, the Workforce 100 recognizes companies that excel in various areas of human resources during the course of the previous year. To determine which companies make the list, Workforce editors work with researchers from the Human Capital Media Advisory Group, the magazine’s research arm.
To find out which companies are the best for HR management, the research team created a statistical formula to shift through publicly available data on HR performance to separate the best from the rest. This year, to give employees more of a “say,” we’ve asked recruiting and job review website Glassdoor Inc. to provide data on what workers are saying about the companies that made our short list. From there, we combined that information with the public data available to create our 2016 Workforce 100 list.
American Express Inc. was the top company on this year’s list, and it has made the list all three years. Thirty-three other companies have also made all of the lists.
