How to Make a Witch Ball
By Unknown

Witch Balls were very popular in 18th century England, but their actual origin is thought to be much older. For well over 300 years hollow glass spheres have been hung in windows to ward off witch's spells, evil spirits and ill fortune. Hanging these decorative balls in the window is thought to tantalize evil spirits which may be threatening a home's tranquility. The evil spirit is mesmerized by the ball's reflective beauty. When the spirit touches the sphere it is absorbed and trapped in the web-like strands of glass inside the ball.


1 Red taper candle
1 Clear ball ornament that has a cap you can pull off
Red string
Silver paint
Frankincense or Patchouli

Take the cap off of the ornament. Put silver paint in the ornament and swish it around until the whole inside is covered put it aside and let it dry.

After the paint is dry (this varies depending on the paint and how thick you coated it. You may wish to leave it overnight if you have the time), take the red string and cut it into strips that are 3-inches in length, and fill the ball up with the strips until its full. 

Put a few drops of oil in it. You can add protective herbs also if you'd like.

When finished, cap off the ball with the cap it came with, or close it off with the candle wax.

Lastly visualize protective energy filling the ball and recite with intent:

"Symbol of the moon, symbol of the lady divine, Reject all negativity, defend this home (car, etc.), me and mine!"

You may hang the ball in a window, a car, on a wreath on the door, so-on.
