How to Make an Elven Amulet

amuletbSince we’ve gotten a lot a questions about making amulets, we decided that maybe a post on the subject would be in order.

Making an amulet can be as simple or as complicated a process as you want it to be so I have included a few options for you to consider.

Note:  If this seems like too much work, we now have herbal amulets and wooden pendants available in our store.

Since we have already discussed what amulets are here, I won’t go over it again.  Instead, we can move right along to making different types of amulets.

HERBAL AMULETS–An herbal amulet, as the name suggests, is an amulet which is made of, or includes herbs. A simple way to make one is by following the steps below: 

1)  Decide how big you want your amulet to be. Finished size of the amulet we are making here is about 1 1/2″  square so all the directions will be for this size but you can make it any size you want.

2)  Transfer or paint your design on a 2″ x 4″ piece of felt or other suitable fabric. Make sure your actual symbol is on the bottom half as below: amulet1

3) Fold fabric in half, right sides together, and sew two sides as shown. You can use a sewing machine or you can hand sew it, it really doesn’t matter. Turn the sewn amulet, right side out.

4) Decide what kind of cord you want and attach it to the amulet. Of course, there are other ways to attach the cord and you can do it however you want but here’s how we do it:

amulet3_cord

Decide how long you want your neck cord to be and then thread a large needle with the right length of fine leather cord, making a good knot at the end. Going inside the amulet, pull your needle through the top left corner and then take your needle back into the amulet from the top right side as shown.  Remove the needle and tie another knot at that end.  The cord is now attached at both corners from the inside.

5) Fill the amulet with the appropriate herbs. There are different herbal formulas  for different amulets so you need to find out what they are before you fill it up.

6)  Sew up the remaining side by  hand and your amulet is finished!

OTHER TYPES OF AMULETS–

For those who hate to sew, there are other options! You can put a magical symbol on a variety of objects so just use your imagination.  Below we have a some  of the easier methods available to you.

1)  Silver frame method–

This involves  painting or printing the amulet symbol on a piece of paper and then gluing it to a piece of cardboard or wood in this case.  Apply a sealant such as varnish to the symbol, apply glue to the back and insert it into the silver frame (available at a craft store or online).  Simple!

2) Wooden Amulet

Another simple method, this just requires that you print out the design and glue it to a wood piece or paint it on directly.  Again, varnish the symbol, attach a bail (available at craft stores or online) or drill a hole and you are done.

3)  Glass Pendant

This method is a bit more difficult since you need the right materials which can be difficult to find…

Basically, all you need to do is print out or paint your symbol, glue it to the bottom of the glass piece, attach a silver bail and coat the backing.

      Hi Archie,

      Sounds like some pixies causing minor trouble – they can be pranksters. You might want to say something like “I can hear you whispering. Is there something you wanted to say to me?”

      Just make sure you sound sort of casual because you don’t want them to think they have you worried or scared–that might be too fun for them and they might continue to pester you. If you talk to them in a normal tone, they may go away entirely or let you know what they want.

      Let us know how it goes…

    Hey guys, srry i haven’t been on in a while. I’ve been thinking over, and I know this must sound entirely like a false proclomation, but i think i may have just some form of the sixth sense. But it is mostly hearing. It’s weird, I’ve never actually heard talking except in my old house. Now that I’m here, everythings fine. Now, I’m not any expert and I have actually no clue what I am talking about but its seemed very subtle. I guess I’ll see how that goes. BUT, not what I wanted to say. I was talking to my friend, and she said she bought this elf doll from macy’s, and if it trusts you, it’ll move around. Now, you can tell I find that hard to believe. But then my other friend said he “had” one. and both of them said they disappeared every year near christmas to help “santa”. First of all, IS SANTA EVEN REAL!?!?! Big question there. Second of all, no WAY macy’s people would sell real elves. third of all, if they did, that’s just plain cruel. CAN SOMEONE HELP ME?!? NOTHING I KNOW SEEMS TO FIT INTO THIS!!! I AM DESPERATELY CONFUSED!! 😐

    no one has to answer the first part of that question anymore but please to tend to my concern of the elf dolls. you don’t have to answer the first question anymore because someone was gracious enough to answer my question on the forum.
    sincerely,
    Bri

    Thanks for your help Natalie, but i havent heard ‘them’ talk again since then, also i havent experienced anything weird since the ‘whispering incident’, although, i feel at night that someone else might be in my room(my room is not haunted in any way possible:p), i get this feeling before i go to sleep that someone is keeping an eye on me.i dont know, may be i am wrong, i might be looking into things too much, and regard normal things to something unusual, but thats how i felt last night…i just wanted to share!lemme know…thanks!

    Hey guys, its been long time since I have commented here.It feels great to be back! And i have got a couple things to share! First of all, i wanna tell u abt a dream i had, i dont remember the actual dream, but i just know this that i was crying badly in my dream, and then suddenly i woke up and realise that my eyes and my cheeks were wet!I dont know how this happened, but it did a couple of times.Not once, but twice with interval of some days! Weird part is that, i wake up as soon as i cry in my dream with my eyes wet.Please explain, why does this happen?(scientifically or spirtually)

    Next it wasnt a dream, i heard some whispering again and I woke up hearing what SHE said. The voice was definitely of a female, and she said something like “ABEN” or “A BEN” It was definitely something like this. Help me to understand what this is.

    Regards,
    Archie.

    Hello. (:
    I was wondering if there is someway you could form the amulet with wire and if it would work that way?

    • Natalie Lynn December 1, 2009 at 9:43 pm - Reply

      Hi Jenn,

      It depends on which amulet you are talking about design wise, I guess. I suppose it could work but you need to make sure you use a magical metal such as silver, copper or gold.

    i have a question.How do you make a communication amulet?

    • Natalie Lynn December 1, 2009 at 9:49 pm - Reply

      Hi kairi3000,

      You would make the communication amulet the same way as you would make any other amulet using mugwort, elder and graveyard dust for the herbs.
