I don’t know if I’m just now noticing them, or if they’re becoming trendy … but I’m starting to see dream catchers everywhere! Obviously they have a history that goes way back in Native American traditions and I love that they’re still around.
Whether or not you think they catch bad dreams and allow only good dreams to slip down across the feathers, they are still a neat handmade decoration. I know the meaning behind them is probably much more deeper than just that, but I am not too familiar with it. I love the idea of them though – so whimsical & charming!
Here’s a few favorites I’ve seen around lately, including illustrations of them and DIY. I’m convinced I need to make one now. But- we have a window above our bed. Does it work if we still put it next to our bed? :o)
What special details would you put on your dreamcatcher? I love the DIY ones made with doilies.
