This is my first altered Altoids Tin! It was trickier than I anticipated as I wasn't expecting the embossed lid. I guess I'm a little late to the party.  Wink

Anyway, I had a lot of fun putting this together for hawkeyes_girl in a recent personal swap.

Here it is all closed up:



And open, full of goodies:



All the contents:



There's a candle and candle holder, a wand, bowl and offering plate, extra candles, a gazing stone, wooden cauldron, infused oil, and an alter cloth.

I made the candles by melting down an old candle and dipping hemp into the melted wax:





Here's a close up of the wand, which I made with a toothpick, some black hemp, and beads:



It was super fun to put together. Thanks for looking!

Really nice, Abbeeroad. You included so many special little things. I've always wanted to try melting down my own candles!
