You can make your Native American rattle colorful or keep the colors neutral. 3.Insert objects such as beads, bells, feathers, or buttons onto the yarn while you are wrapping it around the stick. This is how the Native Americans would decorate their rattle, so this will give your rattle a more authentic appearance. 4.Tape or glue the ends of the yarn to the stick to secure it into place. This will ensure that it will not come unraveled later. 5.Tie a piece of yarn or string from on end of the "Y" part of the stick to the other while inserting some decoration onto it along the way. This will also give your rattle a little added flair and bells can be added to give it sound.
