Summary from Quora or someone who can write a better synopsis than I

Naruto lives in a world of mystical ninja villages that seek to dominate each other through elite soldiers, called shinobi. Each shinobi molds and manipulates spiritual and physical energy to perform miraculous feats such as: walking up trees and upon water, breathing fire, shooting lightning from the hands, creating tidal waves, phasing through rocks, cloning, and other awesome stuff.

Naruto is an orphan who seeks the approval of his village that has shunned him his whole life. He finds out that the demon fox spirit that destroyed the village 12 years prior was sealed inside of him as a baby. This is why people shun and fear him.

Naruto becomes a ninja and vows to become the greatest, most powerful shinobi that his village has ever seen so that they will have to respect him. In shippuden he matures past this, but still maintains his dream of becoming the village leader so that he can protect his people.
Available in ~ Manga Book Series and Anime Series

I was inspired by the Nine Tailed Fox Demon spirit trapped inside Naruto’s body. I made a mini Nine Tailed Fox charm out of clay. I didn’t want anything that was outwardly obvious like a headband with a Sand or Leaf village symbol or character. The fox can be just be a animal charm, or if someone sees the details, they can notice the nine tails on the fox.  Or you can make it even more obvious by adding a symbol like a leaf village emblem or seal that holds the fox or something in black paint. If it’s a necklace you could add other charms as well.
I have seen many Naruto Fan Art, Cosplay pieces and other handmade things inspired from the popular series and there are many different things. Headbands, miniature to life sized Gara’s Sand Gourds, Naruto sandals, kunai and clay character charms. That’s only some of the things people have made from Naruto and so I struggled to come up with a diy that was more original. Though you might be able to find a similar tutorial somewhere else or for sale on Etsy, this project is not so generic I hope, so I hope you guys try it or get inspired.
