Updated: Feb 12, 2020

With paint and ribbon and pens we ride,

It's an art witch party for Samhaintide...

May I present to you, 18 Ideas to celebrate Samhain and witch-pack your grimoire this fall.

1) How could you create a scrying mirror in your book?

2) Research a local haunting: Draw a map, illustrate a comic or photo document the location.

3) Investigate augury and include the auspices in a spread.

4) Play with crayon and water color resist to create spirits and spiderwebs.

5) Paint leaves and give them faces to create ghosts or nature spirits.

6) What is your recipe for Samhain cider, party punch, sangria, coco or simmer pot?

7) Curate a playlist to honor the dead: people you admire, family, pets or ancestors of tradition.

8) Create a spread that includes a poem, song or quote about the nature of fear.

9) Make a 2D shrine for a loved one who has crossed over with an envelope or recycled greeting card.

10) Write an "Ancestor", "Other world" or "Beyond" acrostic poem.

11) Have fun cutting windows and create your own Samhain advent calendar.

12) Try masking with painters tape before applying media. This will create crisp edges for spooky skeletons and bare trees.

13) Explore the underworld with pomegranate stamps, images or try painting with pomegranate juice.

14) Write a letter to a deceased person: historical, familial or inspirational. What would you thank them for? What would you like them to know? Ask for advice, guidance or assurance.

15) How many different varieties of pumpkin can you draw or document?

16) What scents do you associate with Samhain? Do you have a special incense blend recipe? What could you create using what you have in the pantry?

17) Collage with dyed or painted coffee filters for a foggy, mysterious or spectral effect.

18) Try your hand at automatic writing.

How will you conjure the spirit of Samhain in your magick book, Moon Baby?
