An ancient Indian legend of Dreamcatcher
It was long ago, when the world was still young, and the people lived in harmony with the forces of nature. The elder shaman of Lakota tribe ascended the mountain, and he had a vision. Wisdom teacher Iktomi came to him in the guise of the spider. While they were talking on the hidden language, the spider took willow twig bent into a hoop, embellished feather birds, beads and began to weave around the web. He told the old shaman about the cycles of life: a child is born, and it is taken care of adults, then grows up, and he takes care of new babies, and so continued endlessly. Willow hoop symbolizing the human way of life, everything in nature is in a circle. At different points in our lives we are faced with various forces, some of whom want to help us, others on the contrary be harmful. If a person has good forces, they will be happy to take it in the right direction. If the choice is wrong, then the person is suffering and will get trapped. Everyone chooses their own path. Spider continued to weave a web, while saying only a small hole left Centre. Look, he said, it's a perfect circle, use it to help your people achieve their goals, drawing on ideas for them from the visions and dreams. If you will trust the great spirit, kind thoughts and dreams will come to you, evil does get confused in the web and melt with the first rays of rising sun.
The old Shaman handed the talisman to his people, and since then, many Indians hang Dreamcatcher over bed, making sure its ability to filter out all the bad and keep the good.
Ideally, you should only make Dreamcatcher made of natural materials, using willow thin twigs, thread of natural origin (the Indians instead of yarn were deer sinew), wooden Clay beads and feathers or live birds-Eagle or owls. Feather symbolizes the air and sends to the owner of the mascot bird, for example, the ability to see in the dark. Nowadays, of course, it is difficult to find the feathers of an eagle, so fit and more mundane materials.
Even if you do not bring special meaning to the ancient legends, Dreamcatcher is just beautiful and contemporary ethnic decoration, decor and color scheme that you can choose based on from your existing environment.

Did you ever have a dreamcatcher as a kid? Or currently have one now? I did, and still do. I've always thought about making one myself but I never got around to it. Recently, I finally made up my mind to make one so I went searching online to learn how. This would be fun to make for yourself or even for your kids/family members to make! Enjoy :) I was pretty excited to make this because this is my first one ever! And it definitely won't be the last!
