I’ve done this series of gift idea posts for three years now and I think it’s one of my favorites things to work on. Since I am a crafty witch, this particular list has a special place in my heart. Here’s my ideas for this year and make sure to check out the lists from past years because they are always different.
For this year’s list, I went to my Pinterest boards for inspiration. Some of these pins I found years ago and have wanted to try, while others I’ve actually made. I tried to include crafts for all experience levels so hopefully something here inspires you!
I still have the dreamcatcher that was made for me years ago by the wife of a dear friend of mine. I always thought that it would be a craft that I wouldn’t be able to do because of how complex they look. That was, until I found this pin. I still haven’t tried it myself, but man, it sure looks easy, right!?
I like the idea of adding stones and feathers in colors that are either favorites of the person you are gifting it to, or colors that are soothing and would inspire peaceful sleep or creative dreams.
I remember when I first saw this pin… a really good friend had just found out her daughter was pregnant with her first child. The first grandchild even! We all immediately started thinking about baby shower decorations and since the daughter was a Star Wars fan, I thought this would be perfect.
I love the versatility of this idea and how it can work for any interest. As a matter of fact, another friend bought this beautiful oil lamp that is made from a raw piece of copper and she put a terrarium together with broken shell pieces in the bottom of the container.
I had a terrarium in college that was a 5-gallon fish tank that I planted some small cactus and aloe plants in and displayed my collection of pewter wizards and castles in. I’ve seen some really elaborate glass containers in Michaels and Walmart stores, so you can get as fancy or plain as you want.
I’ve actually done this one! Super easy!!! I was inspired to make this pin last year as a Yule gift because a coven sister has a thing for zippers and she really liked it.
The hardest part was drilling the hole and the Roomie only messed up one zipper… cuz yeah, me and power tools… not a good idea. Anyhow, there’s loads of ideas out there for zipper jewelry and they all seem pretty basic so this idea is a bigger winner!
Stepping stones are another adaptable gift idea and I’ve seen kits available that have everything you need in one box. I like the spiral idea show in the picture, but there are all kinds of other witchy symbols you can make with small stones.
I’m of a mind to make some stepping stones to get in my flower beds next year! What a great project!!!
Oh, my goodness, who hasn’t seen fairy garden accessories in stores? It seems like you can find them everywhere the there is so much you can do with themes! It’s a bit daunting, but a fun project all the same. Even if you have a black thumb and aren’t comfortable putting a garden together yourself, there are lots of possibilities out there to put together a kit for that fae lover on your list.
This type of crafting project is not for the faint of heart.
I found this pin years ago, when I first joined Pinterest and this made my crafty witch heart go all pitter-pat. I already have a travel altar that I love, but something like this is serious witchery. I have an old, wooden suitcase that I’m thinking of seeing what I can do with to try to replicate this idea.
This idea is high up there in the crafty-meter and I’d love to see what other folks have come up with.
There’s my ideas for Yule gifts you can make. If you are a crafter, I’d love to see what you’re making this year so please share and post a link! Have a safe week and thanks for walking the path for a little while with me! BB
