Paperclip Dreamcatcher by JPCopper Paperclip Dreamcatcher by JPCopper
This paperclip dreamcatcher is about two and a half feet wide, and it ensnares bad dreams like fly paper.

I made the frame from thick wire wrapped by twine. Inch-wide blue, purple, pink, and green paperclips are linked together in the center. A hook attacked to the frame allows this dreamcatcher to hang from the wall or ceiling.

heres a link to the tutorials, in 2 parts

I like your use for these paperclips. I never thought of doing them in a dreamcatcher, but it looks really cool how you did it.

Currently I'm trying to find a way to make a dragon out of them without using the chainmail sort of style like this and without untwisting them. It's going to take a ton or two of paperclips.

x3 thanks, i think your skin art is cool. are you going to settle on one as a tattoo?

that sounds pretty, how big do you want to make it?

MandolinDoodler Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks, I'm not sure if I would even want a permanent tattoo and even if I did I'm horrible with making choices.

I'm trying to figure that out. I want it to be pretty big, maybe around a foot or so high. I think it'll be more slender than fat though, like a Chinese dragon.

that one C: you can wear a glove and people will go 'why do you always wear a glove' and youll say 'cuz im a zombie!!!' and yank the glove off and scare them

you can make a pheonix after and sell um as a set

I love that idea! I should try it sometime...

A pheonix would look amazing with the right colors or even in just silver. This is the pattern I decided on using to make the dragon: [link]

If you sell, be sold quickly, are very original, really.And that price is fine, because you have to spend much time to do one. I thing more time, more expensive.

this is really awesome! its so colorful, and cleaver, would be great in an office or something, they could use the clips hanging at the bottom and easily put new ones back on.

XD I think you could sell I few of these, a lot of people don't have any clue about how to make these (myself included).

the only I would say is that the twine doesn't really match the paperclips. using a wire to wrap around the rim might match it more.
I really like this dream catcher though. :)
