Pipe Cleaner Dream Catcher Craft

My daughter has had issues with sleep since the day she was born. She had colic & reflux as a baby and did not sleep through the night until after she was 1. She suffered from night terrors as a toddler and recently she has been having nightmares. She was afraid to fall asleep for fear that she might have one. We began meditating together for a few minutes before bed to try to clear her head. She is so cute doing her meditation and is able to sit through 2 straight minutes now without opening her eyes.


It seemed to help a little, but she was still concerned about her dreams. A couple of friends of mine recommended getting her a dream catcher for her room. I could not believe I had not thought of it before. I explained to her about the dream catchers & told her that we could make one for her room. Here is how we did it.

All you will need is pipe cleaners, feathers & beads are optional.


Twist 2 pipe cleaners together. Repeat. Join the two twisted pieces together to form a circle.


Form a loop with another pipe cleaner & twist the loop around the circle. Form another loop through the first & twist it around the opposite side of the circle.


Repeat these steps perpendicular to the other 2 loops.


Choose a different color & do this again working in between the other loops.


Wrap a contrasting colored pipe cleaner around the center of the dream catcher to form a circle.


Cut a pipe cleaner & wrap the end around the outside of the circle & let it dangle. String beads on the pipe cleaner if desired & wrap a feather around the bottom of the pipe cleaner. Repeat this step as many times as you like until you get the desired affect.

I made two for either side of my daughter’s bed. Sweet dreams my sweet girl.
