For this week’s Weekly Witchy CHALLENGE- Creative Crafting- I decided to give knotty magick a try
I originally had this gorgeous velveteen ribbon I wanted to use (you can see the corner of it at the top of this picture)- but several attempts and much frustration later, it became apparent that big floppy ribbons aren’t the way to go for neat-looking knots (a tragedy) Bye bye ribbon, hello twine
Like Francisco describes in his post about Witch’s Ladders- at its core, knot magic is very simple.
You hold your intent as you hold the string.
As you weave the rope, you also weave your vision and wishes into being.
Your magick and intent are stored within the final knot- a manifestation of your power.
With this in mind, I began tying by following this YouTube video on How to Tie the Celtic Heart Knot:
I chose the Celtic Heart Knot because I wanted a knot that could hold loving and protective emotion
The video is very helpful and the knot comes together quickly- as long as you have the right kind of string! Something round and with minimal loose threads works best. Trust me
With the knot tied, I took some dried Lavender (Purifying, soothing, relaxing, and homey ) and made a bundle.
For anyone interested, a Printable Page about Lavender is available in the Spells8 Green Witch Grimoire Resources
I then took the Celtic Heart Knot and used it to secure the dried herbs.
I decided to place Celtic Knot Lavender Bundle near the entryway- purifying our home and welcoming all who come and go with love and joy!
Has anyone tried knot magic before? Would love to hear your tips and tricks- this project was pretty fun and I’m hoping to try other kinds of knots soon!
Happy crafting and blessed be!
