Metallic Twine Dream Catcher

For my Whisker Graphics project this month, I decided to try my hand at making a dream catcher using an embroidery hoop and gold metallic Divine Twine.

The great thing about the Internet these days is that you can find how to do just about anything. In this case, I found this pin showing how to make a dream catcher, and it was super easy to execute!

In addition to the twine and embroidery hoop, I also used some wooden beads, feathers, and bead cones. Before this, I hadn't realized bead cones were a thing, but they were pretty much what I was looking for when I went to the craft store, mulling over how to attach feathers to the dream catcher.

For the feather embellishments, I strung twine through the hole of the bead cone and knotted the end. Then I filled the inside of the bead cone with some hot glue and quickly stuck feathers in. Have the feathers ready to go though - the heat from the glue travels right through the metal and it's hot on the fingers!
