STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS
Spread out the canvas dropcloth, and then fold in half (short sides together).
Stand up the poles with the tied end at the top, and spread the "legs" out to form a teepee shape.
Wrap the canvas around the poles like you would wrap a shawl around your neck. Find the center of the long straight edge of the canvas, hold it on the back of the tied poles, and wrap the canvas around the frame. The straight edges should meet in the front, forming the opening to the teepee. Pin this in place temporarily.
Following the directions on the fusible web, fuse all your appliques to the teepee canvas. Return the teepee canvas to the pole base. Lace leather cord or jute twine through eyelets/holes and tie the ends to hold teepee in place.
Cut out and assemble the dream catcher. Add a brad to the top and wrap fishing line around the brad to hang it from the teepee.
Cut out the critters and place them around for fun.
