Litha Crafts - Solar Cross

Thursday, June 9, 2011
Predating Christianity for thousands of the years, this simple symbol represents the Earth and the Sun all in one. Sometimes the Sun Cross appears as a swastika or as a equal armed cross enclosed within a circle. It is also know as Odin's cross.
To make your own you can follow the instructions below:

Items Needed:
  • Two sticks of cinnamon
  • A hoop of some kind, that is no wider then the sticks of cinnamon
  • Thread (Raffia is a great idea, also)

  1. Start off my binding the two pieces of cinnamon together forming a traditional equal armed cross shape.
  2. Then fasten the cross to the hoop at the four intersecting points.
  3. You can then decorate your house with your brand new Solar Cross or you can use them in your family's ritual.
