I'm hoping we can learn....get creative...personalize our magickal tools....and have some fun here....Throughout the many Pagan groups I'm in and have been in....I have noticed that sometimes people have a hard time aquiring certain tools....oils.....bath salts... etc...Or are looking for information on how to make charms...candles.... incenses and more....So I thought that compiling all this 'do it yourself' information in the same place would be of some help to all of us....

'The Crafty Witch' is a group intended for people that would like to learn to 'craft' some of their own magickal tools.....candles....incenses....etc....It's also a place to swap crafts...ideas....and recipes related to the group.....Some of the information here will be of my own making.....some will be of information I have gathered from around the web....Please feel free to contribute with your own information....I would like to cover as much as possible...whether it be on beading...charms....etc.....and I'd like to keep the work as simple as possible.....Please do not hesitate to make requests....Feedback and/or advice on any of the projects you may try here would be greatly appreciated....Let's keep our minds and hands busy....and have fun with the 'craft'.....

Have fun.....Sassy Jezebel

LOL Amethyst I am the same way. I will not go there for a couple weeks at a time and then I will go in and stay for hours. 

As far as me I like to do Needlepoint and Latch Hook

Happy Mother's Day to all who celebrate and even if you don't. Enjoy being a mom and take one day for yourselves. My son asked when he was small (as most kids do) "Mommy, why isn't there a Kid's Day?" Because son, every day is kid's day! Haha! Aradia have you had you little one yet? If I've missed it somewhere I apologize. I've been a bit out of it lately.

Freecycle is a very good option for things and it helps to keep a lot of stuff out of landfills. That's always a good thing IMO. And if you're looking for something special, you can always ask if anyone has it. I've been pretty successful with it.

Electric Blue witchy items are always fun things to make. Course h'all know I'm craft challenged so I dont make a lot of snything and im pretty basic with my craft. Il the only tool I use is ME. Haha! I'll find you on Pinterest. Ilove pinterest but keep forgetting to go there. Course when I do I stay there for awhile. Haha!

@Silje, depending on the specific medium some things aren't that expensive. I find that at least for fiber arts (knitting, crochet, weaving, macrame, and needlework) the supplies you absolutely need to start out are very inexpensive.

For some things that involve more complicated processes (like messing about with EO) the investment is more definitely, but there are still lower cost options that are okay for experimenting.  (Nothing worst than spending money and ruining something you can't fix!)

As Silverthorne said, trolling thrift stores is a good way to start out.  You can also try Freecycle (it's like Craigslist but actually free) in your area to see if you can find certain things.  Then certain stores tend to be less expensive if you can't wait for an online shipment.  Here Walmart, Michaels, Hobby Lobby (not my fav but will do in a pinch), AC Moore, Joanns are typically the go tos (from least expensive to most expensive).  I always like to shop around personally because I have very specific tastes in things for my artwork.

But I can say for a fact that any chain store for yarn and things of the like is absolutely less expensive than hitting up a LYS (Lily cotton yarn for < 2.00 vs Blue Sky Alpacas cotton for 13-15 just to give you an idea!)

And when in doubt ask friends!  I'm personally collecting men's ties (because I've seen the cost of a new one) and been telling whoever I can to pass any along to me that they find!

I buy my jewelry parts from wholesalers when I can but then I also troll thrift stores and garage sales, etc.  I buy the jewelry as cheap as I can and take it apart to reuse what I can. I do the same with sweaters - take them apart to reuse the yarn depending on the condition of the yarn.  I hope the helps a little

I love the inspiration that comes with spring. There are so many things I want to start making - jewellery, knitted shawls and blankets, scented oils. :) Just need to get my hands on the materials - that's the expensive part when it comes to DIY, I find. Anyone got any ideas for reducing costs?

I am really wanting to start getting into some witchy crafts. I have been looking up a few websites about it so far. Pinterest has some good ones. BTW my Pinterest is @andresbity if you wish to add me for those who have it.

Hi all! Wow. Seems I've been out for a bit. Trying to get back to normal. Will be looking for something cradlfty to make in honor of my Blackie. Had to let him go last week. I really want to make a quilt of him but will be needing ideas and time and...everything. Haha!

My personal Book of Shadows is somewhere between a scrapbook & an art journal.  I used to have a lot more appropriate clippings to slowly fill it with but many moves decimated that collection.  I haven't thought about it in years, but it would be good to get back to it soon! <3
