How to Decorate a Dreamcatcher Cookie

Posted by Anne Yorks on Wednesday, April 13, 2016

I have been dreaming of creating this cookie set for some time! I see feathers, arrows, and dreamcatchers everywhere - so much inspiration for cookie designs! It's perfect for birthdays, bridal and baby events...and Mother's Day!

Check out the video on how to create the dreamcatcher! We are using a new format for the videos to help show what tips we are using. Check it out!

Aren't the colors of this set so perfect? I'm not a big fan of color mixing. More often than not, I like to create colors using the gel straight from the bottle - no complicated color formulas to make these colors. However, when working with lighter colors, I do add a few drops of white. I find it makes a more solid looking pastel AND helps to reduce signs of butter bleed! We carry a full line of Americolor gels here!

Are you looking for the perfect brushed font? I used the Movus BrushPen from dafont.com. I made a $20 donation to the artist for the use of the font. It would be free for personal use! I loved this font, but wanted a few extra curls, so I modified it just a little bit. Take a look: 


Can you guess the cutter for the dreamcatcher cookie? It's the Wilton Duck (upside down!) This cutter is available here!

Here's a tip guide to creating this cookie. These tips are all available here!


Here are the cutters featured in this set. They are all $1.99 and are available online here - click for the: Feather cutter, teepee cutter, oval plaque cutter and arrow cutter.


Create a quick and easy accent cookie with the arrow stencil!


I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!! Stay tuned for both the FEATHER and ARROW videos coming this week!!


Happy Decorating!

    I have been looking for the image of the dreamcatcher that you used to make the dreamcatcher cookies. Can you possible point me in the right direction to find the image to use on my projector?

    i love these dream catcher cookies! My little sister has a collection of dream catcher hanging in her room, so I might need to try and make these for her birthday. It would be fun to copy the designs of some of the ones she has so the cookie look more realistic. It was also a great idea to use the duck cookie cutter. I wonder what other cutters you could use. Thanks for sharing how to do this! http://dreamcatchrs.com/wordpress1/dream-catchers/
