How to Make a Yule Blessing Ball Ornament

How to Make a Yule Blessing Ball Ornament December 19, 2018

Yule is fast approaching! I would ask if you are ready but I know from experiences that sometimes we are never completely ready. Well, whether you are looking for a last minute gift idea, something fun to do with the family, or just want to put a little bit of magic out, this is a simple activity to do. Gather a few items from the list below and we are ready to start.

Supplies needed:

Clear Glass Ornaments (you can get these at Joann’s or Michael’s) I used the 3.25″ size but you can use smaller or bigger if you desire. Use plastic ones if working with small children. 

Herbs (see herb qualities below)

Small crystals, stones and trinkets (make sure you can get them in the opening in the top of glass ball)


Parchment or special Paper




Here are some ideas with intentions, to add to your blessing ball. Feel free to mix and match while using your intuition. Be creative and add other things that you feel called to.


Pick from the following list:

  • Angelica
  • Basil
  • Bay Leaf
  • Clove
  • Coconut
  • Holly
  • Rose
  • Sage
  • Nails, pins, and/or needles
  • Broken glass
  • Amethyst crystals
  • Wolf’s hair
  • Black feather

Pick from the following list:

  • Catnip
  • Chamomile
  • Daisy
  • Ginger
  • Mistletoe
  • Rose
  • Yarrow
  • Rose Quartz
  • Apple seeds
  • Pink (romantic love) or red (passionate love) feather
  • Paper hearts
  • Sea shells

Pick from the following list:

  • Cinnamon
  • Cloves
  • Patchouli
  • ginger
  • Dollar bill ($5 or more)
  • Pearl

Pick from the following list:

  • Allspice
  • Cedar
  • Cinnamon
  • Ginger
  • Mugwort
  • Nettle
  • Rosemary
  • Amethyst

After partially filling your ball, take out your piece of paper and pen and write your intention. Is this for healing? or protection? write it out, roll it up small enough to fit easily in the opening of the ball and continue to fill up with the rest of your recipe additives.

Add a ribbon and charm of your choice to the top and your blessing ball is complete.

When I am doing magickal creating, I like to cast a circle around my work table and I. For some people, they will cast around their craft room or kitchen. Witches who do this for products to sell, will sometimes leave a circle of protection up, for the creative room, charging it periodically. I will leave this up to your comfort level.
