I was a very crafty witch last evening. I completed three wreaths and now have to fill the bags and charge them with their intent under the full moon tonight. I also plan to make a few more wreaths this evening. Included are some pictures of the wreaths I made, sorry for the poor quality, still working on getting a good digital camera.
To the left we have a Spirit of the Chakras Wreath. It has a rainbow ribbon and a gold moon and stars hanging in the middle. The herbal bag has yet to be attached. It will have a blue kyanite stone and a mix of herbs that align with or work well with the chakras. I have made one of these before and people really seemed to like it.
The wreath I was most worried about was the one for Mabon. I was concerned that it just wouldn't work, but after I put it together it just
seemed perfect to me. The colors don't show very well in this photo, on the right. The ribbon is a rust color and the ivy and fall leaves look very good with it. It is really much brighter than it appears here. On the herbal bag I attached some fall colored plastic leaves I found at the craft store. I like this one the best of all that I have made. The herbal bag will contain a lapis lazuli stone and a mix of marigold, myrrh, passionflower, rue and sage (plus a few more). I call this one the Spirit of Mabon Wreath.
The chakra wreath is a small wreath and the Mabon would be considered medium size. I have been wanting to make ones small enough that they could hang in the car, from the rearview mirror, or where ever. I finally found wreaths that small and worked on one last night.
I call it a Spirit of Protection Wreath - Mini. It has black ribbon and the pendant in the middle is silver and says "trust" on it.
I didn't remember to make it so that when it hangs both sides look the same. Because of that I may not take it to the shop and may keep it for myself. I plan to make another one tonight the way I had originally intended to do. The mini wreaths will not have an herbal bag, but will be annoited with oil when it is charged.
Well, that is the progress on the wreaths. I'm pretty happy with the way they are turning out. I hope to get into a regular part of my month.
Oh, I almost forgot. I was going to post a picture of my little witchling! She is so cute!
I just fell in love with her. The picture is, again,
not great and you can't really get a good look at
her face, but it is a vision of what she looks like.
Isn't she just the cutest!
