Wordless Wednesday

Hi everyone! I am doing a craft post today. Now that Cat Scouts is closed, there is another site for former scouts to gather, but it just isn’t the same. For now on, I plan to show my monthly craft here and then post the link on the Facebook Cat Scouts page which is still running. I will also still do it on the new site.

This month I made a kitty dream catcher. I am sure you are all familiar with dream catchers. They usually have feathers, but mine is a little different.

It was very easy to make. All you need is a canning jar lid, yarn, ribbon, a pompom and some foam or felt for the ears.

If you don’t have a canning jar lid, you could take a plastic lid and cut out the middle or shape one out of aluminum foil. Then you tightly wrap yarn all around the ring, after it is covered you criss cross yarn across the middle and glue it to the side.Β  You then cut out ears and eyes from felt or foam and glue them on. I used a pom pom for the nose, but you can use whatever you want. Then add ribbons (or feathers) to the bottom.

Let me know if you make one.

Rudy and Rusty will return next week for our regular program. πŸ™‚

  1. That’s very cute! I know we have some stray canning lids around here somewhere … it may be time to make some crafts. πŸ™‚

  2. That is a cute kitty Dream catcher!
    I did a sort of similar craft:
    I wound brown yarn around a ring, then crisscrossed yard all around that…The bottom third of those crisscrosses were then bound together to form a stylized ‘trunk…and the rest was the branches of a tree. I made four of them and then decorated, (with knotted yarns), all the branches to depict the seasons.
    I have no idea where the pictures of them are…sigh…I gave them to my Aunt as a gift one year…

    1. Thank you. πŸ™‚ I hope you find photos. I would love to see them. XO

  3. That’s a really cute little dream catcher……”Crafts” at Cat Scouts was always fun and it’s nice you’re continuing for them.

  4. Enjoyed seeing that! Made me recall all the dreamcatchers my sons made in the first years at school. I wish I still had one.

  5. So cute and the ears made it even cuter.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday, Ellen. Scritches to all the kitties. xo β™₯

  6. How do you cut out the middle of a plastic lid…mama’s are strong plastic and she doesn’t have plastic scissors, haha. But we hope your catcher catches some good dreams.

  7. The kitty dream catcher is making me smile as I type. It is soooo cute! It’s going to be fun to see your monthly craft here at the blog.

    1. Thank you. πŸ™‚ Maybe I will catch kitties instead of dreams. XO

  9. Wow, good job! Sorry I’m late. Our electric has been out since yesterday due to a big tree branch breaking the electrical lines out in front. We didn’t have electric all night & because I stayed up (I wear a CPAP machine. Anyway, I went to sleep early this morning & slept half the day… finished my blog & here I am. Whew, plus there’s a tornado warning today!! But it didn’t happen thank the Lord. Have a nice evening.

  10. Very creative! You could make the kitty dreamCATchers in all different colours to match each cat.
    Something tells me there are so many dangly parts that cats might like to play with them, too.

    1. Thank you. πŸ™‚ Good idea, but it would take me a very long time to do 13 cats. XO
