Make this dreamcatcher with shells and feathers

Using a few beads, feathers, and a few other items you can make a neat dreamcatcher. Dreamcatchers have been around for hundreds of years in almost every country catching bad dreams and keeping them away from people while they sleep.

Here’s what I used (or, what I planned to use. I did not end up using everything, as you’ll see at the end).
