Outdoor Rites and Midsummer Nights
Around the world the Summer Solstice is celebrated with outdoor rituals, parades, circle dances, and Pagan rites both ancient and modern. It's also the start of the Festival season for many Witches and Pagans, when many of us gather for camping, celebration, ritual, drumming, and dancing around the fire until dawn. Whether you're celebrating the longest day of the year camping in a festival with hundreds of others, or alone in your own back yard, this is the time to move the magic outdoors and connect with the sacred in Nature.Gallery: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=381563.msg4515526#msg4515526
Let's create crafts for our outdoor Midsummer celebrations, such as flags and banners, costumes, lanterns, drums and musical instruments, portable altars and ritual gear, cloaks, hats, camping and campfire stuff or anything else that might be useful in outdoor rituals or at Pagan festivals. Talk to your partner about what they will be doing this summer and surprise them with something magical.Size requirements for WWP Round 28 will be 2 small items or larger if the partners agree.
