This is a great-looking Native American (suspension) rattle craft you can make from a "y" shaped stick. This is fun for learning about other cultures or music. There's also a great video below. Te tutorial starts about half-way.

Materials:
  • "Y" shaped stick
  • yarn
  • scissors
  • tape
  • craft feathers
  • rattle objects: beads, washers, shells with a hole, etc.


Directions:

  1. Wind the "Y" shaped stick entirely in yarn and tie off. Tie a few feathers to the ends.
  2. String some yarn between the "Y". Thread on rattle materials like washers and beads. Tie the other end.
  3. Make native American inspired music with your rattle.
