Spooky cute is my Halloween aesthetic. Chubby checked ghosts, kittens dressed as witches, and all things spoopy are what I like in my decor and media. Not that I don’t have limits. I once had to nix Ben’s idea of Chibi Slenderman for a Halloween costume. Other than that, though, nothing is too cute. Thus is this week’s craft: spoopy felt skulls.
Autumn is my favorite time of year. It is the season where I most feel magick in my bones. The colors always seem just a bit brighter as the season turns. And, for those who forage, there’s a treasure trove of materials and food available.
Like spring, Autumn is a season of transition; where various planes of existence–physical, spiritual, astral, etc.–come into close contact with each other. Samhain and Halloween are both traditional times to connect with spirits, and to consult various oracles with questions about the future.
Today’s craft makes use of the foraging and divination aspects of Autumn to create a timely oracle you can use throughout the year: We’re going to make a set of acorn runes.
