Bit of this and that weekend..a much needed break.
Walked up to the wood with grand boy 1 and “Atlas the dog” I collected some “turning” oak leaves, I had an idea for an autumn poppet head wreath, I wanted to use real leaves.
Real leaves of course naturally decompose, so how would I preserve them and make them small enough for a poppet?
I took some “Mod Podge” and coated the leaves. Now after drying I am making them into tiny oak leaves, using a tiny cutter normally used with paper.
Tiny tiny leaves
Part two to follow….
The past couple of months saw me creating custom PaganPoppets
A Fallen Fae Poppet for a very patient client when the postal service took little care for my “ickle” Poppet…emergency replacement legs!mortifying.
I try so hard to ensure my packaging is as naturally packed as possible, but hard cases seem to be the way.
All future Poppets will come in a display case with the poppet while I source alternatives.
This tiny little Crone was indeed a challenge as she had to be 15 cms only, Owl headdress included. This picture also shows one of my shawls which will be available in my Etsy shop.
Thank you to my two lovely customers who challenged and trusted me to make them.
If you want to celebrate and care for your own well being I can create a Poppet self.
This is me, that’s my face, I know, but that’s what a crone looks like, no maiden am I. I am wearing a special gown which says “by the pricking of my thumbs” hand stitched as a pattern.
A picture of your face is all I need and then I create magic 🧙🏻♀️
In my little poppet tummy I place herbs, sacred water in teeny flask and or stones, I’ve even got a tiny hag stone for my tummy.
My creativity wains and rises, Spring and Autumn are my seasons. What are yours?
PoppetWear is the accessories section of my PaganPoppet Etsy site.
I wanted my Poppets to be used all year. So I have been busy making Poppet aprons and gowns.
The Poppets can wear aprons or gowns to celebrate the wheel of the year, celebrations and seasons.
To take a closer look go to my Etsy site, there will also be headdresses, shawls and tiny pagan necklaces.
I will creating new Poppets and aprons for Samhain in the coming weeks. So watch this space.
