Last month I had a little 'consultation' with Ashley and we decided what project would be good. As there would be some boys there as well as girls she thought it was really important to make something that they would love too. We used Pinterest and I had pinned a few ideas there, she immediately fell in love with the idea of a dreamcatcher. So I designed this one:
The dreamcatchers did take a while to assemble as each child had differing abilities; some could tie knots and some couldn't - same with loops so it was handy having my Mum and Sister-In-Law there to help out. Everyone had enormous fun though and as I supplied sucker hooks for each child they couldn't wait to get their dreamcatcher home to hang on their bedroom window! (you can just see my example hanging on the window in the large picture).
If I was to do this project again I would eliminate the hole punching and just tie the yarn and ribbon straight to the hoop and then assemble the paper in the middle.
