Each year I am making an ornament and I am already working on this next years ornament. Wanted a polish eagle but with working with what I had it quickly became and Native American Eagle or shaman dancer depending on how you look at it.

How to Make Native American Eagle/Shaman Ornament Craft

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut a 6-7 inch piece of colored wire (mine was blue)
    string your three tail feathers on and center and twist wire together.
  2. Onto that twisted part add the body bead over both parts of the wire.
  3. Place your head bead on next and bend to side to hold and set a side to work on wings
  4. Cut a 5 inch piece of wire and attach a slightly bigger than seed bead and wrap the end of the wire to secure.
  5. Then it will go as follows
    seed bead, shortest point, seed bead, next sized bigger bead, seed bead, next sized bigger point, seed bead, next sized bigger bead, seed bead, biggest point, seed bead, next bigger bead......
    Then reverse the order.
  6. Figure out how big the wire has to be to accommodate the beads plus 2/3-3/4 of an inch extra. then secure your last bigger bead as you did the first by wrapping the wire around between it and the seed bead beside it.
  7. Secure to the body between the head and body.
  8. Crimp the top part of the extra wire into a loop to hold the string to hang.

    Average time of craft is 30 minutes each
  9. The original drawing that got me started
