I am always looking for new ways to decorate for Halloween. What is the one thing that Halloween can do? Well, of course, cause nightmares. So why not make some creepy dream catchers to chase them away!
These dream catchers are super easy to make using store-bought spider webs, creepy fabric, and leftover craft trim. Break out your craft 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 Halloween Pre-made Cloth Spiderwebs
- Halloween Creepy Cloth: Green, White
- Halloween Fabric Scraps
- Leather cording: Black
- Wood Twigs
- Long Curly Doll Hair
- Yarn: Gray, Black, Lime Green
- Halloween 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 Halloween 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 Halloween decor!
