Rainbow Birthday Party Craft
Dream Catcher Station
Having already prepared the round Dream-catcher frame, all the children needed to do was choose what they would like to hang from them. Colourful beads, strings and ribbons were the favourites!

ALL ABOUT THE CRAFT
This party began with a disco in our daughters’ room and then it was craft time. There were a few craft activities for the birthday party guests to choose from. The party guests could make their own dreamcatcher with colourful ribbons, string and beads, make their own paper mosaic rainbow and necklaces.
RAINBOW BALLOON PHOTOBOOTH
Kmart surely did come in handy here! When I saw the fun cardboard photobooth signs and objects, I knew we needed to create a balloon photobooth. For a previous party we purchased black bendable pipe from Bunnings. (Who knew this would come in handy again!) We secured each end of the pipe to two speaker stands (yep I’m a muso) with gaffe tape. From there it was the mighty task of blowing up the balloons, tying 4 at a time together and securing the string to the pipe.

DIY DREAM CATCHERS
Yes, you can absolutely create your own dream catcher. It is much more fun to make your own right? Seriously though, it is not that hard.
Lets dive in to the material you will need: Wire, string, spray paint, beads, colourful wool and ribbons.
Wire: The first step is to find the right gauge wire. Bunnings has an assortment to choose from. It needs to be strong enough to hold the structure of the circular shape but thin enough to easily bend into shape. To secure each end together I just used gaffe tape.
Dream Catcher pattern: Once the circle was created it was time to wind string around it to make the dream catcher pattern. You can find many online tutorials that will help you.
Paint it yellow! A fun splash of yellow completed the look. Hint – make sure you purchase a spray paint that will adhere to the wire!
Prepare the lengths of string: Now we were ready for the children to hang all different types of colourful ribbon, beads and wool, it is a great idea to firstly pre-cut them into lengths.
