DIY Green Witch Portable Altar

If you’re like me, and like to bring your earthy witchcraft with you this is the DIY for you.

cost breakdown and materials:

✨ Wood box - $2.99 from craft store (but most stores have coupons)

✨ Stain - $4.99 (a small bottle will last you forever)

✨ Moss - $5 from a craft store (I’m sure you can fine it somewhere cheaper)

(side note: I don’t recommend getting it from the ground. It can lead to mold/bugs/allergy issues)

✨ Hot glue 

✨ Acrylic Paint and brushes

Prep your box by sanding down any rough edges, removing any stickers, as well as making sure it’s dry and clean.

Stain your box. You can use a rag or brush to apply stain. Read the directions on your stain bottle, and wipe off extra stain. I love wood stain.

The latch has an eagle on it :)

After your stain is dry prep for the sky. You can prep with gesso or just white acrylic paint. This will make your colors pop more. I just dove in with painting, but if you want really crisp border lines use masking tape.

While waiting for the white to dry I hot glued in some moss. It takes the glue really well, but retains its fluffiness.

Add your night sky. To avoid having to paint tons of layers because your paint is transparent, ad a little white in. For the sky I mixed white, black, and blue, and left it a little unblended for a foggy feel.

Ad stars. I chose Cassiopeia, Polaris, and the Big Dipper. Use a tooth pic to get small dots.

Add in your items. I didn’t have a tea candle so I made a temporary candle from a shell. I also added some jars for herbs and a couple of crystals.

i’ve been brainstorming for a small pseudo-comic w dipper writing his own set of journals picking up a year after the events of gravity falls so!!! here are Thos Teenyboppers 

Do you see it? This common question frequently precedes the rediscovery of one of the most commonly recognized configurations of stars on the northern sky: the Big Dipper. This grouping of stars is one of the few things that has likely been seen, and will be seen, by every generation. 

The Big Dipper is not by itself a constellation. Although part of the constellation of the Great Bear (Ursa Major), the Big Dipper is an asterism that has been known by different names to different societies. Five of the Big Dipper stars are actually near each other in space and were likely formed at nearly the same time. Connecting two stars in the far part of the Big Dipper will lead one to Polaris, the North Star, which is part of the Little Dipper. Relative stellar motions will cause the Big Dipper to slowly change its configuration over the next 100,000 years.

(forgive me followers for i have been inactive for FAAAAAR too long -dogezas- I’m soooo sorrryyyyy accept these as my apology -repeatingly dogezas-)

Good guys gone bad, Hiro, Dipper, and Anodite!ben

The first pic would be Hiro who just won a fight against Big Hero 6 (Tadashi, Honey lemon, Fred, Wasabi, gogo, and baymax) but when tadashi takes of his helmet hiro thinks that tadashi is just a faker pretending to be his dead brother (ppst Alive!tadashi). did i mention this hiro actually mechanically altered his body aka, he’s now a cyborg… somewhat

The second pic would be Dipper fighting Ford while Mabel fights Stan, and he’s just “I’m so much better than you so just give up old man” yeah that (this happens during weirdmageddon)

the third pic is just ben going ballistic on an Human alien hunter that fatally wounded the team and rook trying to stop ben from killing the alien by acting like a human shield ( i need more anodite practice)

(may or may not be more depends)
