Native American Art & Craft Supplies

Decorative artwork like beading has been the mainstay of Native American Art and such art forms made use of the many items that are available in Nature and have been shaped into beautiful items. Decorative items and dress accessories can be easily crafted with straws, clay, mud and metal. This can look very beautiful. Simple craft supplies like paper and wood too have been brilliantly used to impart beautiful yet simple look to the art.

Among the Native American craft supplies, ceramic arrowhead can be used for making a key ring; here, you use a thin crafting wire and may be even feathers to make the key ring appear pretty.

Look for a large piece of leather and a metal craft hoop for making the mandela, which is akin to the dream catcher.

For making a shelf display or a mantel, you need a small block of wood. Get a good picture and also have some strong glue, then you can get started on this craft work and have your desired item.

The list just goes on; there are actually lots of things that you can make with the craft supplies. Get the Native American theme in by making the crafts and be surprised with what you can do.
