15 Fascinating Dream Catcher Tutorials
What is a dream catcher? In short, it's a Native American tradition that is absolutely fascinating and beautiful and has been around for generations. Dream Catchers are intended to protect people who are sleeping from bad dreams while still letting the good dreams come through. According to tradition, good dreams go through the hole in the center of the dream catcher and then glide down the feathers to the person sleeping below.
This, of course, is why people say that dream catchers should always hang over your bed. It is said that the bad dreams get caught up in the web during the night and once the sun rises and shines on the dream catcher, they get destroyed.
So if you would like to stop your bad dreams every time you go to sleep, or simply create a beautiful decoration based in a fascinating culture, check out this list to find out which dreamcatcher you'd like to try.
