My Altar

Postby Caitieb9 » Sun Feb 12, 2012 8:51 pm

Hey guys!

When coming to the craft I knew that I wanted my alter to be mobile so that I could easily take it with me when I moved around (I'm a college senior) and so I decided to make my own out of wood. I don't have everything completely set up but I wanted to show it to you!

I etched the letters of the directions into the glass in celtic writing.

Thanks for taking a look!

Wow it's so cool that you made your altar. It looks really great (not that I know anything about woodwork)! Is that salt in the container in the middle? Bright blessings x

No, it's a white candle. I use it as my working candle.

Wonderful!

Lots and lots of patience. I traced everything out onto the wood after I designed it on my computer and then I used a dremel and carved it that way. It took me about 5 hours in total, but I just love it! The candle holders sit down into little crevasses so that they don't move around and I designed the center to be the goddess, god, and the pentagram. I really identify with the trinity and so I used that as simple decoration also. I am glad you guys like it! it really isn't that hard to do, if you already own a dremel you could easily do it in a day!

Your alter design is beautiful. Way more impressive than mine which is always cluttered and needs to be remade/reorganized.

Wow, that looks great!! You did a great job... and it makes your altar very special and close to you, too...

Did you make those colored tea lights or can you buy the that way?
