Native American Dream Catcher
The Dream Catcher is said to have originated in the 18th century. Traditionally crafted by Native American Indians, the dream catcher was hung by the bed to bring good dreams, chase away nightmares, so a good night’s sleep was ensured. Eventually the dream catcher became popular with other people who saw it as a charm to bring peace, good luck, and blessings. Traditional dream catchers are made with a piece of wood formed into a circle, with a web woven onto it. Beads and feathers are attached to it for decorations. Today, the dream catcher has taken on many different sizes and styles. Numerous new materials are used for crafting it, such as leather, cloth, and wool strings.
