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

How many paper clips are used for this?  Would like to try to make on.  Directions are little vague though.
