    Default Need craft ideas for witch theme

    I want to host a simple, witch-themed get together this month. I would like to have everyone make a theme related craft to bring home with them. Only adults will be invited, so I don't want anything too childish. Yet, I do not want anything too time consuming either. I will greatly appreciate any and all ideas.

    how big a craft project do you want? i only have a second but briefly you could try making witch balls or witch bottles. both items of protection and could be as serious or "fluffy" a craft project as you want? google both items for more details ( sorry really dont' have time right now. can get back to you if you are interested though).

    witch finger cookies? mix up pot pourris in decorated kids plastic cauldrons? have a contest to make the funkiest witch hat? Everyone brings a cheap hat and you provide spiders, glitter, sequins, fur/feather trims etc.

    make a wand - if you google you can find a host of info on significance of colours and flowersw/herbs etc which invoke different thigns - protection/love/confidence etc - you can use these in the form of ribbons/essential oils/ to make a wand or even to decorate a nice smelling candle so that as it burns it draws those things to you.

    carve apple heads - quick easy - make the tiny hats too and in a week or so - just in time for halloween - they will have their own shrivelled head witches.

    not sure if thats what yo had in mind - sorry gotta rush. will try to get online and check back tomorrow. GOOD LUCK!

    :-)

    Lilbugwitch, thank you so much for all of the fantastic ideas! i hadn't heard about witch balls or bottles used as protection. i will look into that. sounds very cool. and using cauldrons to make pot pourris, what an awesome idea! wow! you gave me a lot of great ideas to choose from. i like the wand idea, but don't know what they would be made out of. and i love the idea of using colors, herbs, or essential oils symbolic of invoking different things. you have given me more ideas in your rushed reply than i had found all day surfing the net for ideas. Thanks again!

    LOL no probs!

    I'm new to the forum but it's given me so many great ideas i'm glad to be able to contribute something back!

    Wands can be made from large twigs /small branches (if you see what i mean!) - some people strip the bark others leave it and sand the rough edges OR for the sake of time a piece of dowelling that you can then stain or paint and glue bits too. If you were using tree bits then you could again use a different tree to represent a differnt intent - you can find lists on the internet again - type in " tree correspondences" ( or colour etc to get a list of what each represents)

    Good luck - hope you find what you need and have a great gathering! :-)

    You could make a set of rune stones from small pebbles and have everyone decorate a bag to put them in - if you google that then you can print a small list of divination meanings on A4 for them to put inthe bags too..

    depending on how good you all are with crafting clay then another option is to supply a variety of dried herbs/ crystal chips /essential oils.. make a clay figure of a symbol that represents somethign to you ( success, luck, love,protection, strength etc) that you want in your life make a hole in the bottom of the clay and add your herbs etc seal the hole and when it dries decorate it and have it as a touchstone near the door so whenever you go out you can touch it and quitly invoke whatever characterisitic it represents to you...

    My wife made these last year and they were such a hit that she is making them again this year. They are pretty simple to make.

    how did your party turn out? here's some ideas for a possible next time

    i've seen those witches brooms, they are very cute and a good place to start. i think they would be fun and easy. instead of candy inside, you could put some good luck items.

    here is another idea that looks fun and easy.
    Eerie Eyeballs and more creative crafts projects, templates, tips, clip-art, patterns, and ideas on marthastewart.com

    both the brooms and the spider/eye balls are from martha stewart. you could google martha, she has lots of fun ideas on her site

    another idea that i thought of, side shadow pictures, but add a witch hat. i've always liked the side shadow pictures and a witch hat would be real cute
