This is the perfect craft for your little unicorn dreamer. I recently made these rainbow unicorn dream catchers to go with one of the tent parties we threw for two birthday girls. We needed just a little something for the top of the tents. It’s fun and easy and cost effective to make! I spent around $24 for all of my supplies and made 6 total.
What you need:
yarn, a ring or wreath, glue gun/glue sticks, scissors, glitter foam, pink felt, white hard felt, little flowers and a hodge podge of ribbons.
I bought everything from Michaels with the exception of the little flowers. I got those at the dollar store! I also would have used a floral ring, but Michaels was out and amazon wasn’t able to deliver them on time. I know JoAnn has them, but didn’t really feel like driving there. So…I went with a wooden wreath. They are 99 cents a piece and I split it in half!
Step 1: If you get the wooden wreath you want to split it in to pieces. I also took the wire and twig parts that are sticking out.
Step 2: start wrapping the yarn around the wreath or ring.
Step 3: Wrap the yard around the ring/wreath until it forms a spider like web.
Step 4: You can secure the end of the yarn using your hot glue gun.
Step 5: Attach a ribbon to the top. This is how you will hang your dream catcher. You can make the length as short or long as you wish.
Step 6: Now for the horn and ears! Cut a triangle from your glitter foam, two rounded triangles from the white felt and two smaller, triangles from the pink felt to fit inside the white triangles.
Step 7: Glue the horn on the ring/wreath right in front of the ribbon. Then glue the ears next to the horn. Now you are ready for the flowers. You are going to glue the flowers on the top of the ears and horn.
Step 8: Now it’s time to tie on the ribbons! I found this 50 piece hodge podge of ribbons at Michaels. This was great because I could have a variety without having to buy multiples spools of ribbons.
Viola! You are finished! Wasn’t that fun?! Now display it however you’d like! Sweet dreams!
