What Is a Dream Catcher?

How does Dream Catcher Works?

A long time ago, the native American Indians believe (I also believe) that the night air is filled with all kinds of fantasy, and dream catcher will filter and trap all the nightmare in the net. Next day, the bad dream will be gone away with the sunlight. Only good dream to come through the hole and follow the feathers streaming down, giving the owner a beautiful dream.

 

How To Make A Dream Catcher with LEGO?

Step 1: Find the bricks that can make a round frame. For me, I used 6 pieces of 4 studs retangular brick and connect them with the connectors. You have to ensure the structure is sturdy enough to hold the net.

Step 2: Get colorful strands (choose the colors you like) and pick some round bricks as the beads.

Step 3: Use the colorful strand to weave the net, it’s fine although uneven. Below is my first attempt, the feeling was blissful & happy when I actually making for myself a star-like net *giggle wiggle*! After done with the net, you can’t miss the feather, where the good dream will flow to you via the feather. As I couldn’t get any feather quickly around my house, I’ve decided to make my own colorful feather, just tie the threads to form a feather shape.
