Litha Crafts - God Figure

Sunday, June 19, 2011
Back at Imbolc we made a Corn Dolly and now at Litha I wanted to talk about making a doll to represent the Holly King. I plan on keeping this on the altar until Yule in which I will burn it and replace it with the Oak King. I have put some pictures at the bottom to give you an idea of what it could look like.

Items Needed
  • Raffia
  • Vine
  1. Braid together some of the vine to form the body and use the raffia to tie it off and secure it. Make sure to include a loop at the top as a head. 
  2. Split the bottom of the braid and tie them separate to make two legs.
  3. Take a second, smaller, braid and stick it through between the loop for the head and the legs. This represents the arms if you need to you can tie off the ends. 
  4. Now if you choose you can decorate it as a symbol of the coming Autumn and Winter.
  5. Set it on the altar with the Corn Dolly as a representation of the God.
