My stepdaughter & her b/f just bought a house & a few months ago I made her a dreamcatcher.  Being short of cash I decided to make her another one for her new house to match the bedroom.  The colors are going to be a "blood" red & silver.  I have been wanting to try my hand at beaded dreamcatchers for awhile and this gave me the perfect excuse!

I still need to add some details but all in all I think it turned out pretty nice.

Took a break from studying this morning & finished up the dreamcatcher!

Thanks.  I had purchased a book on beaded dreamcatchers, but it wasn't too helpful, just basic info Shocked.  Once I figured out how to make my points evenly spaced and the bead count for each row Tongue it was pretty simple.  I have finals this week & next, but am hoping to find the time to make one with a flower like design instead of the web and hopefully finish up this one upon which I will post another pic of the finished product.

Thank you. I am hoping to go to Hobby Lobby next weekend to get some seed beads to make a twilight themed one for my youngest stepdaughter for Christmas.
