New Crafts Just In Time For Yule

I know I’ve talked about some of the items that my altar still needs… the main thing is the Pentacle tile for blessings.  I’ve been trying to find one to buy, but none have really called out to me.  So my sweetheart suggested I make my own out of tile samples from Lowes or Home Depot.  Well, we didn’t get around to getting any, but one of my students said she had some tiles from her house laying around and would let me have some.  She brought me five!  That would be plenty!  I could make one for the class to use, which would be a simple pentacle with the elements listed at the correct points of the star, and then the others I could make for my personal altar, the boys, and even have one left over to make to give away at the Yule raffle!  So this weekend, that is exactly what I did.  These are the pictures of how they turned out, except for the class one, which is just a basic one, no need to show that one off.  LOL!

Holy & Ivy

This is the one I will be giving away at Yule for Ecclasia.  I made one like this for my  youngest son Jack, as well.

sun and branch

This is the one that Roger picked for himself.  It’s a golden circle around branches that make up the star with leaves coming out of the end of the branches.  Originally I had the circle in yellow and red, but I really didn’t like the way it looked so covered it with the gold pain instead.

multi-colored celtic knot

This is the last one that  I made.  It’s a celtic knotwork circle, with the colors of the 4 elements and silver rings and the star is gold.

I had a lot of fun making all of these pentacles and may very well decide to not only make more for gifts, but to sell them on etsy and ebay.  What do you think?  Is anyone out there interested in hand painted pentacle altar tiles like these?
