Step 1

Cut out the middle of the paper plate so you're left with a circular ring.

Step 2

Punch five holes around the inner diameter of the plate.

Step 3

Paint your plate in whichever colours you'd like.

Step 4

Cut off a long piece of coloured string. Tie it to the hole at the top of the ring and begin weaving the string in and out of the other holes, creating a star shape-like pattern as you do.

Step 5

Punch 3 holes at the bottom of the ring and tying strings to each other them, attach a feather to the end so they dangle down. If you don't have any feathers, cut some feather shapes out of drawing block and paint them.

Step 6

Punch another hole at the top of the dreamcatcher and tie a string or a ribbon through so you can hang your masterpiece up in your bedroom, preferably near your window.
