Item details

REINDEER RATTLE KIT

This Reindeer Rawhide rattle kit includes everything you need to make your own Native American shamanic rawhide rattle.

At the top right of this listing, you'll see drop down option lists that allow you to customize your rattle's size, shape, and handle. I have pre-punched the holes in the rawhide for your convenience. You may choose a lightly sanded stick, a beautifully hand finished stick that is a work of art in itself, or you may use your own stick.

This listing also includes a beautiful "How to Make Your Own Rattle" eBook and How to Video.

I provide this product at my cost. I make no money on this kit.

Why do I sell it?

I offer it for those whose only access to a rattle is to make it themselves.


REINDEER RAWHIDE RATTLE HEAD

This "Make Your Own Shamanic Rattle" kit includes a pre-cut, pre-punched, natural Reindeer rawhide of your choice. To the right of this page, you'll see a drop-down list offering choices of style and size. When choosing the rattle head and size you want, you'll also choose the handle. More information on the rattle handle below.

If you prefer Goat rawhide, please see the listing for Goat Rawhide Rattle in this store under "Make Your Own Rattle" Category - https://www.etsystudio.com/listing/558854697/make-your-own-rattle-goat-rawhide-shaman

The Goat rawhide rattles a slightly less expensive because my cost for goat rawhide is less and I am passing that savings to you.


CORD COLOR FOR STITCHING & WRAPPING THE RATTLE HEAD
The rattle comes with brown cord to stitch your rattle head together and to attach the rattle head to the stick.

If you prefer black cord, please add that message to your order or message me and I'll gladly provide you with black instead of brown.


THE HANDLE - 4 OPTIONS

The tree or root wood handles shown in the photos in this listing are an example of handles that were in stock at the time this listing was created.

The stick handle you receive will be of the same beautiful, high quality, but will likely not be one of these sticks as they will likely not be available at the time of your order.

1) USE YOUR OWN - If you prefer to use your own stick or handle, click "Use My Own."
2) NATURAL STICK - A slightly sanded tree branch or root, perfect for your rattle
3) HANDWORKED PREMIUM - Handworked to a natural, beautiful finished work of art. The tree always guides me in how to reveal its beauty and spirit.
4) ROWAN TREE BRANCH handle is a very important asset for some healers and its metaphysical powers take this rattle to a new level. Most of my Rowan Tree handles come from Latvia. They are absolutely beautiful and a work of art.


WHAT'S INCLUDED:

- Detailed step by step PDF and video instructions to create a beautiful rattle
- Pre-cut and pre-punched natural Reindeer rawhide head; two pieces, cream colored
- Needle for sewing the head together
- Brown waxed cord to stitch the two sides of the head together and attach the bottom of the rattle head to the stick
- Your choice of lightly sanded, premium hand-finished handle of natural wood or Rowan Tree wood, unless you choose to use your own handle
- Corn, Rice and Sage for the voice of your rattle
- All elements are cleansed and blessed by my helping spirits for the highest good on behalf of you and those with whom you work


OPTIONS:

If you would like to add custom options to your rattle, simply choose them in the drop down list at time of purchase:

*** CUSTOMIZE YOUR RATTLE BY ADDING: ***

Customize your rattle by adding any of the following:

• Add a Rowan Tree Handle $25
• Add the beautiful protective feather and red jasper fetish / dangle pictured with rattle:
----Option 1: Standard (hangs from neck, using brown waxed cord - see image entitled "Customize Your Pair for example) + $15.00
----Option 2: Premium (made of leather cord, spirit guides placement on rattle) +$25.00
---- Option 3: Premium Plus (The plus is a fur dangle at bottom of handle, see image above) +$40.00

- RATTLE HEAD COLOR. We can dye your rattle LIght Brown, Dark Brown, Burgundy or Black for an additional $5.00. Message me with this request, please.




*** WHAT YOU NEED AT HOME: ***

- Fast drying Super Glue or its equivalent. I use Locktite fast drying "super" glue. I think it is best, hands down.
- Sand, Earth, Salt, or Sugar to fill the rattle head and create the shape while the damp rawhide dries.
(I highly recommend white sand).
- - Optional: Dye or paint to decorate the head, if you wish
- - Optional: Popcorn, pebbles or dried beans to clean the sand out of the inside of the rattlehead

Sheri was amazing throughout the entire process, and her instructions so clear- I wouldn’t have even known where to begin on my own. I’m so proud of my rattle and am looking forward to working deeper with it. I have already started recommending Sheri to my close ones. You are amazing thank you!

You can tell that there was a lot of care put into these kits and the ebook and video were very helpful as well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to create their own rattle.
