  • salt shaker rattles

    does it matter if you use the salt or prepper shaker when making a rattle.seem i read some where it does should the shaker be putt on up right or upside down/have seen it both way

    I would think it's preference; but if you look closely at them, the holes on the salt shaker are always smaller than the pepper shaker. If I were making them, I would place the shaker upright on the rod, just looks better. I'm making rattles currently, but out of a different item, kinda fun to put together.

      I have two gourds
      one that shaker is up and the other is down
      I have heard of and seen it both ways
      As far as Salt or Pepper
      I use the salt one because it has smaller holes
      Dont recall ever seeing the pepper one but I am sure its used also

        There is no rule that you must use a salt or pepper shaker. *L

        I have seen some very attractive gourds made from painted cans. I used to own a salt shaker rattle and two painted can rattles, but have since misplaced them.

        So this year I used one made of an ornamental shaped metal apple shaped container. It worked fine.

          I have always seen the lid at the top, but honestly I am not sure if it matters. I have two copper shaker rattles, and one gourd rattle. My brother has even used large tea strainers, and last year at ASU, I saw one made out of a door knob. The door nob one was different, a little small for my taste, but it worked. I've seen others made of evaporated milk cans, and painted.

            Mine is a milk can.

            In case I get thirsty out there. ;)

            I've seen some very pretty copper and silver condiment shakers.

            Most anything is used to make "gourd" shakers. We just don't use real gourds (anymore) in respect to the Native American Church. You will see real gourds out when dancing at times. One assumes those are NAC members.

                    Well,

                    as a matter of fact, I have seen some gourds at gourd dances that were, well, unusual.

                    I have seen deer toes on a long stick, lot's of pueblo ceremonial gourds, a hollow bladder gourd shaped in a small circle and a mexican cucaracha gourd from south of the border!!

                      Salt and peppa' shakers! Thats what i use! The older ones where smaller than the ones nowadays. But they are getting harder to find. From time to time, I will look on E-bay and get those smaller ones there. Crazy Crow sells some too. I saw a neat gourd this past weekend, It was made out of part of a longhorn...horn.

                        That is where i found my salt and pepper shakers on Ebay! I found a pair that were nice and small and did not have the handle they were painted orange but i cleaned them up and polished it using some aircraft polishing compound and now they shine whew!!
                        I am looking for one of those oldtime tine cans they are so cool looking and would make a great groud

                          that's 'cause you got your mojo working WhoMe. I've been told I have rocks in my head, maybe I could just stick some horse hair on my head and shake it around.....well, maybe not . I use salt shaker too, lid on the top. The shaker from Crazy Crow is useful if that's the type you want.

                            I am working on a new gourd at this time, working on the beadwork now. I was even thinking about painting it. But I'm not sure yet. The two cans I got from Ebay were good, but dull. I wonder if there is some kind of polish I can get locally.
                            I got some new cans from CampingWorld. They are the big cans. They are almost too big. I'm afraid I might get going out there and accidentally club somebody...LOL...

                              A good polish is NEVRDULL
                              you can get that at any Autoparts store
                              I sanded mine with ever finer sandpaper untill i got to 2000 grit then when to polish cloths and polishing compound

                                Hello all of you crafty people......I'm back, after not posting for a long while. Just last week, I went to a store on the east side of Cincinnati, where there were all sorts of traditional supplies.....one being real sinew.

                                A lecturer I heard recently, while explaining stress management to the audience, raised a glass of water and asked, "How heavy is this glass of water?" The answers called out ranged from 8 ounces to 20 ounces.

                                The lecturer then replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter....

                                I have seen these earrings all over the place. I'm not sure if they are flat peyote or brick stitch. I have seen them as both earrings are the lady or one is a lady and one is a man. Everyone that I have asked doesn't have a pattern, they just know how to make them!
