Hello and welcome! It’s Julia from Inflorescence Designs! I’m so joyful you are visiting today.

Today’s project was inspired by the good ole days of SUMMER CAMP! When I was younger, I would go to summer camp every year. I would attend Girl Scout Camp each summer and enjoy all the thrills. Hiking, swimming, singing, campfires and spending the night in platform tents. However, my favorite thing was the arts and crafts (and still is–who says you have to grow up entirely!).

Something about creating in nature brings me joy! So, with my post today, I am collaborating with Therm O Web and a fun, new-to-me company Benzie Design, and together, we are taking you to Adult Summer Camp!

Today I am sharing how to make a beautiful Dream Catcher.

When I was younger, we definitely made some dream catchers at camp, but nothing like what I’m about to show you. When I was younger, the center of the dream catcher was simply yarn that was haphazardly wrapped around a hoop and then some beads and feathers were added.

Since those days, my hand-eye coordination and patience has evolved, so for today’s dream catcher, we are going to weave a beautiful center and add some amazing felt and pom poms.

Dream Catcher with Benzie Design Felt



These dream catchers are beautiful and have intricate weaving to create the centers.  For the best understanding of how to construct, please watch the full YouTube video tutorial below or on our YouTube Channel.

Thank you for visiting today.  I want to send out a special thanks to Benzie Design for supplying the gorgeous wool felt, wool-blend felt, poms and floss for the projects being featured this week.
