Group will try to create largest dreamcatcher

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - A group in Carbondale, Illinois will try to weave its way into the Guinness Book of World Records, and you're invited to watch.

According to a news release from Southern Illinois University, artists and volunteers will attempt to create a dreamcatcher measuring 14 feet in diameter.

The record-breaking effort will take place near the administration building of SIU's Touch of Nature Environmental Center from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 23.

The most recent update on Guinness World Records' website lists the record for largest dreamcatcher at just under just under 10 feet in diameter; a record set in London, UK, back in July of 2012.

The project is being funded by a grant provided by the Boys and Girls Club of Carbondale.

Once completed, the giant dreamcatcher will hang in the grove trees near Touch of Nature's administration building.
