from the side of the CD.
3 holes in the bottom - one directly across from
the top hole, and 1 hole evenly spaced on both sides
of the middle. Being accurate will ensure that the
Dream Catcher will hang straight.

the label side of the CD.
- Sprinkle glitter on
glue. Use different colors to make a pattern if you
wish. Allow 1 hour for glue to dry (you can move on
to the next steps in the mean time).

double knot (one on top of the other) at one end. This

more beads on this strand, it will be the center in
the bottom and provide balance to the Dream Catcher.

shorter strand to the outer holes.
a 3 inch length of twine, string through top hole, and
tie a knot to form a loop.
