Any lacing, or ribbon
waxed linen thread
any small beads colours - any you like
feathers - any
Wrap lacing or ribbon around the ring to cover completely, and tie off, leaving a long enough piece to use as a hanger. Take a piece of waxed linen thread, and tie it near the top of the ring, next to the hanger. Loop the thread and tie off, to make seven points around the outside of the ring, keeping thread taut, and ending off where you started. From this point, loop the thread through the threads, around and around the circle of the ring, making a spiderweb pattern...
Small, clear, or irridescent beads may be added to give the appearance of dew-drops...
On reaching the center of the ring, where you can go no further, tie off the thread. At this point, there are two choices for the finished peice
#1 string 4 beads on a feather, and tie the feather to the center of the dreamcatcher or...
#2 cut 3 or 4 strips of lacing of equal length, make a small slit in one end of each, and place evenly along the bottom side of piece by looping through the ring, and threading end through slit, then pulling tightly. String 4 beads on end of each piece of hanging lacing, tie a knot in the end of the lacing, and slide a feather shaft into the beads (glue may be used sparingly to ensure it holds)
*notes: willow wand can be used in place of metal ring, but should not be wrapped - should be long enough to make a circle of at least 3-4 inches in diameter, may be as large as you feel comfortable with - metal ring - min 3-4 inches in diameter, as above lacing - leather is prefered, natural colour for traditional, but any colour that you like is fine beads - size should be proportionate to the size of the ring colours - traditional colours are blue, red, white, and black or brown, and alternated, but any are acceptable feathers - length of feathers should be no more than the diameter of the ring colours - natural colours for a more traditional look, but any are acceptable
