It’s that time again! time to throw open the doors to all our Bewitching Homes. As always thank you to Tenae at The Witch of Howling Creek for inviting us all to her Bewitching Home Blog Party.
Before I get into my post I want to welcome you to my home and my little corner of the world. If you are new to my blog welcome, welcome and by the way I do have a giveaway going. If you have been here before, well welcome welcome to you too! I love my friends old and new.
I thought and thought and thought about what to do for this Imbolc post. i have been having so much fun with my Poppy’s Pagan Planning posts on Sundays that I had so many ideas of what to do! I finally decided on a craft. A very easy craft that is good for the earth. So join me as I make the fire starter for the bonfire we will have with our circle tonight.
These are the materials I used and you will need something like this. The coloring page is from Pooka pages, Imbolc issue. If you have kids or even if you don’t you will probably enjoy the pooka pages. I held the original paper and our newsprint up on a window and traced it.
and yes that is a toilet paper roll. I mean they are something most of us have in abundant supple. When it is time to change the roll I whisk the old one away to sit on top near my washer and dryer.
This way fill it with the lint that comes out of my dryer. Ok not the prettiest picture but how pretty can lint stuffed in a toilet paper roll be?
Place the stuffed roll on the back of the drawing and roll it up.
Twist up the ends and if you need to you can tie them off or just push the twisted part into the ends of the roll. It will hold.
TA DA! of course you can pretty it up in any way you like and even add dried herbs. I did not add herbs as there is another woman in my coven that is always in charge of the incense.
You will never run out of the materials and so you can make these for each holiday or special occasion.
