Prior to hosting your own event, make a bunch of Spirit Bags to give to your guests, and distribute them as people arrive. Here's how you can make one:

You'll need:

  • Squares of Fabric
  • Small stones or crystals
  • Dried herbs or flowers
  • Yarn or ribbon, cut into 36 - 42" lengths.

Select the fabric, stones, herbs and yarn based upon the purpose of your Spirit Bag. For example, if you wanted to make a Spirit Bag that offered protection magic, you could use a number of small hematite stones, some violet, thistle, or honeysuckle, and even a few light iron shavings in your Spirit Bag. For one that celebrates the season of Yule, use red or green fabric with obsidian or ruby, along with bits of dried holly, cinnamon or mistletoe.
