A 3rd grade Indian project.
My Dad is really into the Native American culture. Especially since he and I both have a good majority of it in our blood. You can see in the back ground pieces of other animals he has killed and put into good use; but this is something that I helped him do and I'm proud of.

  • Step 1

    Cut off long piece of thick fishing string and attach the needle to one end.

    *it's better to use a strong big needle rather than a little one.*

  • Step 2

    Pour out your dried corn so you can see the different colors and shapes.

    Pick out which ever pieces suit you best and put them in a separate pile.

    Use the needle to carefully stab and drive in the middle of the corn. Be careful not to hurt your self.

    *Helpful hint: the corn will not fall off and will last longer if you drive it in slowly directly in the middle.*

  • Step 3

    Repeat step #2 until the corn is strung on and is the length that you desire.

  • Step 4

    Lay your necklace down and pick up your skull.

    *You don't have to use an Otter skull, or let alone, any kind of skull. A bone or neat looking object (such as an arrow head) can be used to replace or substitute for this project.*

    Inspect the skull for any flaws or chips that could hurt you while wearing it.

  • Step 5

    Find an opening in the skull and stick the string with the corn on it thru.
    *make sure the the hole is big enough for the corn to go thru. Do not force it in if it does not fit; find another opening.*

    *if you are using another bone or object, be sure that you have made a big enough opening also for it to fit.*

  • Step 6

    Tie the ends together tightly. If you would like, you can burn the knot so it will melt together and stay firmly tied.

Very creative! Happy I have Native American blood also, but I do not know very much about my heritage. It makes me happy to see someone else loving the culture Happy
