What a nice, easy and effective way to bring the full feel of Beltaine into your home.. Beltaine wreaths. A nice craft for children too.
Some thick woody looking floral wire, some silk flowers. some little birds or butterflies (fake ones from the craft store of course, lol.. REAL ones don't take kindly to being glued onto a wreath :D) Just double the floral wire and wrap it 'round your head, keeping in mind to leave a wee bit of space for the flowers, leaves etc...
You can hang them on doorknobs, hang them on the wall, and then on Beltaine, wear them on your head!
When I find some batteries for my camera, I will put up some pictures. The house imps seem to have hid them on me. (house imps, aka: teenagers)
If you are having an adult get together, nothing says fun like yoni and phallus shaped cookies.Great to serve in lieu of alter cakes.
Tulips are in abundance at my house right now, with alot of the credit of that going to the darling dutch couple that owned the house before us.
I try to bring the outdoors in, and have even succeeded in accidentally bringing in a few wasps here and there, inadvertently. (hiding in the flowers).
On my kitchen alter I have bits of herbs that are thriving right now, and of course the springtime flowers....
Ahh, such a wonderous time.
At no other time of the year does the grass have this hue.. the earth the smell of freshly warming soil, this excited chatter of birds.
Tis a happy time indeed!
