I'm a pagan - somewhat eclectic - probably a lot green witch - and I am continually making things. My dearest friend is always giving me the sweetest little crafts - a twig that was curved and she turned into a beautiful pentagram for me with embroidery floss, beads and a bit of time. For Imbolc she gifted me a Brigid's Cross made out of watercolor paper - she didn't have straw - I teased her a bit because she's a farmer!
I also made a winter witch hat - knitted with Lamb's Pride Bulky, long straight part at the bottom and a decrease 3 in a round, knit 3 rounds plain, until I had 1 stitch left. I felted mine and it flops over in a really cute way - I've had a good 7 or 8 other people ask for 1 and I've been bartering for really cool stuff. The next one I made was felted and stands up perfectly straight!
I've also been making  a Book of Shadows, in several volumes, out of altered books! I found a Born Again book and just adapted it to Born Again Pagan - I'm almost having too much fun!
I've made amulet bags, both knot and beaded......
My kids are at a Waldorf school and make some of the most incredible seasonal art - they made lanterns out of red and yellow watercolor paintings they had made.
I have a digital camera, but digging it out and all will take a bit, did I mention I'm in seminary at the moment for UU?
I found some great little wire dollhouse chairs at the dollar store that we are using for fairy chairs on the family altar - not sure if that was too much, too little, or completely not what you were thinking of.........

I'm not wiccan, but my best friend is.

A few years ago we made her a wand out of a stick we found lying in my yard (not sure what type of wood it is). Basically, we cut off all the knots, peeled off the outer "skin," and sanded it down. I think later she put oil on it too. It looked awesome because the inner wood was very swirly and mottled, and it gave it a rustic natural feel.

I think she also tie-dyed a ritual cloth--an altar cloth? It was just a small plain white tablecloth and she did black tie-dye. I've been trying to convince her to batik a starry night pattern, too.

I also made a wand in a similar way - Mine  had knots and I carved those out and intend to put some stones in them - Mom is a jeweler so I'm going to ask her for help.........
I just started the star baby blanket - it's on craftster - I'm using this beautiful cream/pink/orange yarn that is wonderful - just not something I would ever wear - someone said it looked like it would make a beautiful altar cloth over a dark underlay - I was also trying to figure out how it could be filled after the star is done, with a different color to look more like a pentagram - not sure I'll do it because I'm really liking the star.
I also used the idea of a cosmic rosary and adapted it to a more pagan rosary - divided into four sections, one for each element.

What's a cosmic rosary? Or a pagan rosary for that matter... I don't even know how regular rosaries work. *facedesk*

The premise is that many major religions have some kind of a string of beads that they use for prayer or meditation. The cosmic rosary is an adaptation without any specific religious ties. If you do a Google search, there is a webpage that explains it much more eloquently than I can!

Could you post pictures of you pagan rosary when you get it finished....this interests me much!!!!...........i was going to make a skull necklace out of clay like the one Kali wears (i consider this wiccan/pagan as opposed to hindu because Kali is my matron goddess and i dont really follow the teachings of hindu) its coming along pretty well.........if anyone wants, ill post pics of it when its glazed and everything...
