I always have had a weak spot for dreamcatchers. They seem to possess a sense of mystery, a boho vibe, maybe even a memory of my childhood that draws me near. As a child I always had one (or multiple) dreamcatchers in my room, you see. Now I’m all grown up (haha, who am I kidding?) there might not be as many dreamcatchers around my home as there used to be, but I’m still drawn to the small stalls at the fairs with the swinging, colourful dreamcatchers. And every once in a while you spot one you can’t resist.
But there’s nothing better than creating your own dreamcatcher! So I’ve rounded up some inspiration for you. Who knows, maybe I’ll even try one myself!
The colours are what drew me in here. The green and purples really give off a vibe of mystery. At first sight I thought the doily centre was dyed.. But after a second look I think that variegated yarn did the trick here. Both are great ideas! Source: Gypsy Soul Dreaming on Etsy.
Isn’t this gorgeous? I love the modification of the crocodile flower stitch to repurpose as a dreamcatcher centre. The petals looks really gently too. Crochet might sometimes look bulky, but here it looks very delicate! Source: Raumseelig
Who said a dreamcatcher needs to be round? I love the version Erin Black made. The square shape, combined with the rustic branch and the ingenious colour palette she chose make for a beautiful piece. This is something I can definitely see myself trying! Source: Erin black’s ravelry store
This dreamcatcher caught my eye immediately. The special shape, the big beads, the colour combination, it just fits together perfectly. The name ‘atom’ couldn’t be better. How’s this for the scientific boho-person in your life? Source: Agaazra.com
Yellow is such a difficult colour to bring into your home. I love people who dare to have an accent wall that’s completely yellow (or green, or red for that matter). I wouldn’t dare. But a center piece like this is a great compromise! Source: ThelittleBigShop on Etsy (unfortunately, she doesn’t seem to make dreamcatchers anymore. But we still have the pics!)
This looks amazing! and all you need is a metal ring, a doily centerpiece (maybe raid your grandma’s attic?) and some fabric scraps and beads. This picture really conveys the feeling I get when looking at dreamcatchers: Gorgeous, lacy and boho. I love it! Source: Pattern Revolution
