I am always looking for new ways to decorate for Halloween. What is the one thing that creepy movies can do? Well, of course, cause nightmares. So why not make some creepy dream catchers to chase them away!
Halloween is a time when the boundary between the living and the spirit world becomes blurred, making it a perfect occasion for dreamcatchers. These enchanting decorations not only capture our dreams but also protect us from malevolent spirits that may roam on this eerie night.
Hang these eerie yet beautiful protective charms by your window and watch their black feathers dancing in the wind as they protect you from negative spirits lurking in shadows.
Let your imagination run wild as you explore the possibilities for customization—experiment with different materials, colors, and sizes to create a truly unique piece.
Whether you believe in their metaphysical powers or simply appreciate their aesthetic appeal, Halloween dreamcatchers are sure to add an enchanting touch to your spooky celebrations.
Halloween dreamcatchers offer a unique twist to this traditional Native American symbol, incorporating spooky elements like creepy eyeballs, bugs and spider webs.
What does a dreamcatcher symbolize?
Dreamcatchers have long been associated with protecting us from nightmares, capturing them in their intricate webs while allowing only positive dreams to pass through.
As we adorn our homes with spooky decor, incorporating a Halloween twist on this ancient tradition can bring an element of fun while still maintaining the holiday spirit.
These dream catchers are the perfect tween to teen super easy craft to make using store-bought spider webs, creepy fabric, and leftover fabric trim. Break out your stash and get to work! Here’s how they are made~
DIY Creepy Halloween Dreamcatchers
- Embroidery hoops: Sizes: 8, 10, 12, inch
- Spray paint: black, gold, silver
- 2 Pre-made Cloth Spiderwebs
- Creepy Cloth: Green, White
- Fabric Scraps
- Leather cording: Black
- Wood Twigs
- Long Curly Doll Hair
- Yarn: Gray, Black, Lime Green
- Scary Eyeballs
- Large Plastic Fly
- Pom Pom Maker: 2 Green Pom-Poms
- Hot Glue & Gun
Spray paint the embroidery hoops and let them dry completely.
Take the hoops apart. Lay the fabric spider web out smooth over the solid hoop. I think having the spider web off center adds more interest. Lay the top hoop with tightening the screw on the bottom of the web.
Press down and pull each string from the web so it is tight. Tighten the hoop screw. Trim the spider web off of the hoop. Hot glue the web string ends to the hoop so it will not shift.
Tie coordinating strips of fabric or string to the hoop bottom sides and center sections first. Add more strings of feathers, eyeballs, wood sticks, etc.
Add a large focal spider, eyeball or in my case a fly to the hoop. Then tie a fabric strip to the top of the hoop, hang it up and that’s it! You have one eerie nightmare catcher to add to your spooky decor!
I hope you enjoyed this post!
