DIY a modern interpretation of a dreamcatcher. Tailor one of these wall ornaments to suit your home’s style with various accouterments and color schemes. Incorporate details like brass rings, wooden beads and faux plants to craft a trendy piece.

This contemporary interpretation of a dreamcatcher has ancient roots in Native American culture. Natives first crafted these “dream filters” with sacred beads and feathers to be hung over babies’ cradles for protection. Authentic dreamcatchers from a reservation or native-owned company can also be purchased from online shops.
