The second grade students made these dream catchers in two different steps. The first step was to paint the exterior and lace the yarn through the center. Once they were dry, our second step was to add the beads to the bottom. To do this, we wrapped the ends of the yarn with masking tape to act like a needle. This makes threading the beads much easier. After all of the beads were on and a knot was tied, we cut the tape off.
