Make a witch's broom. Tie dried corn husks or herbs (broom, cedar,

Make magic Apple Dolls: Apples are sacred symbols of the witch. Our holy
land, Avalon, means Apple-land or Island of Apples. Slice an apple
through the midsection and its seeds reveal the sacred shape of the
pentacle. You will need two large apples, one for Mabon and one for
Modron, 2 pencils and 2 dowels about 12 inches long, a paring knife, a
glass or bowl of water to wash your fingers, a plate, and a towel to
wipe your hands. Peel and core the apples. Carve a face in the apples.
Place apples on a dowel and stand them in a jar to dry (start now). Then
charge in a magick circle. After 2 or 3 weeks, they should look like
shrunken heads. Make them into dolls. Use wheat, dried herbs or doll's
hair for hair. Dress them in tiny robes and bring them into the circle,
asking god/dess to charge them with their light. Hang these Mabon
and Madron heads on a Witch's cord or a Mabon wreath.
