Ok, I’m beyond excited for this DIY Witch ball post today. One, because it’s easy as f*ck. And two, because it helps us to honor and embrace the witch within.
Not to mention, don’t you just love looking around your home and witnessing the witchery everywhere? Especially when it’s something that’s been created with your own two hands?
The best part is you’re going to make do with what you have. So explore your own creativity. And to keep your costs down, but of course.
You may have to buy one thing and that’s a clear glass or plastic ornament. However, if you go to Michael’s or another craft store, you can get them for a couple of bucks. Or maybe you’ve got a friend or family member who’s got an extra one lying around. Ya never know what you can stumble upon.
I bought mine specifically to make this craft. After seeing them on the internet, but each one not completely suiting my taste, I decided I’d make my own. Besides, it was so much more fun than clicking the BUY NOW button. And it literally took me about five minutes.
Again, this is about using what you have on hand. So if you see something on my list that you don’t have, there’s no need to purchase it.
DIY Witch Ball
It’s been said that witch balls are the original Christmas ornament. They were typically glass balls hung in doorways and windows to ward off evil spirits, and ironically, witches. You can read a much more comprehensive history of witch balls HERE.
But we’re switching things up a bit. Because we’re going to be making witch balls to bring us whatever our heart desires. Think of it as a manifestation talisman if you will.
Let’s get started, shall we?
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Glass or plastic ornament (glass is better but plastic won’t break if you have this hanging on a door. I used plastic because I don’t want the wind or my hand knocking into it and shattering it.)
- Cinnamon Stick
- Rose Petals
- Glitter (I used champagne colored fine glitter)
- Ribbon or string to tie onto the ornament
How to make the witch ball:
- Gently pull off the top of the ornament.
- Clean the ornament if necessary. You can also smudge it with any cleansing tool you have or dip an incense stick inside to get all the energies out of it to make sure you’re starting fresh. If you’re using a plastic ornament, you may wanna steer clear of using an incense stick to clean it out. I used a mini selenite wand to get in there.
- Once it’s been cleaned, place each of the ingredients into your witch ball while setting an intention for each item you’re putting in there.
- Save the glitter for last, pouring just a tiny bit at a time until you’re happy with the amount.
- When everything is in there, place the cover back on and give it a good shake to spread the glitter.
- Take a piece of ribbon or twine (the length depends on how long you want yours) and create a loop to tie it onto the witch ball so you can hang it from anywhere you’d like.
If you need more visuals of the process, HERE is a link for the tutorial. It’s not mine, but the method is the same.
- You can charge the witch ball under Lady Luna to refresh the energies.
- If you find that the herbs and spices need to be replaced, take them out of the witch ball and burn them as incense during a releasing ritual. Or you can sprinkle them on the ground.
- Give it a cleansing every so often as they are absorbing a ton of crap.
That’s all there is to this DIY Witch Ball! It’s super easy and will take less than 10 minutes of your time. Not to mention, you’ll be feeling so accomplished in your witchiness.
