The Rear View Mirror of Your Vehicle

This is also a very common spot to see a dreamcatcher. The next time you're out and about, see how many dreamcatchers that you can spot in people's cars. This is a great place to hang a dreamcatcher that is much smaller so that it doesn't obstruct your view as you're driving.

As Artwork

Large dream catchers make for beautiful pieces of art when you hang them on a blank wall in your house. Not to mention, if you already have other wall art, a dreamcatcher is three-dimensional and the contrast can add a lot of character to a space.

Above the Headboard of Your Bed

If you're wanting to hang a dreamcatcher in your bedroom to catch bad dreams, but you don't want to hang it on your bedroom window, then the headboard is a great alternative. Not to mention, it looks really cool there, similar to Bella's in the Twilight movie.

On Your Handbag, Purse, or on Your Backpack

This is the perfect place for smaller accessory-sized dream catchers that either attach with a key chain ring, clip, or a clasp. We've seen tons of smaller sized dream catchers that are clipped onto bags and purses that look so good and add lots of personality


Above a Doorway in Your House

This could be in the front entrance of your house or an interior doorway. Many people hang dreamcatchers made with sacred medicines such as cedar to heal or bring positive energy to all those who enter the room or the house that they're walking into.


Jewelry Around Your Neck or On Your Ears

Dream catchers are so popular because of their cultural symbolism and also because they are beautiful pieces of art, so it's no surprise that they’re commonly worn on necklaces and on earrings. If you want to bring the positive vibes with you wherever you go, then what better way to do that then to wear them by accessorizing your face.

A Large Window

A large window with lots of natural sunlight coming in is a great location to hang a dreamcatcher that has lots of sparkly or crystal beads that are woven into the web. It is so beautiful to see crystal beads catching the light from the sun as it's coming through the window. 

Outside on Your Deck or On Your Front Porch

This is a great spot for a dreamcatcher of any size. Similar to a wind chime or plants that people hang outside, dreamcatchers look so beautiful when they're out in nature, just like other outdoor decor.

Your Attic

If you hear some spooky noises coming from up in your attic, one way to combat those energies is with a dreamcatcher. Hang the dreamcatcher either in the middle of the room or on the window, if the attic has one, to capture any of the lingering spiritual energies that might be up there.

Hopefully this has given you some ideas of where you could hang your dreamcatcher in a variety of different locations. If you're wanting to learn more about the various sacred medicines in the indigenous culture or the smudging process, then download our free guide:

    I have always loved dream catchers. They have always intrigued me. Now to be able to buy one eill hopefully help me sleep. I am an insomniac for more than 20 years, retired & 66 yrs old. I will keep checking for the beautiful turquoise one. Turquoise is my birthstone so having a turquoise dream catcher will surely help me relax into sleep.

    Thank you for posting this. I’ve had a love and respect for all things American Indian since I was a child. This was incredibly helpful, thank you!

    It’s interesting to know that we can also treat dream catchers as outdoor decor. I initially thought that they can only be used indoors but reading your article made me realize that they have other uses as well. Maybe buying some Bohemian dream catchers can complete my patio design well.
