Poppet Magick: Creativity Poppet


Creativity is a handy tool for witches to lay claim to as it helps when creating spells and rituals for themselves. While some witches choose to use the spells of others, either completely, or in part, (which is the reason we share ours here) others choose to create their spells and rituals “from scratch”, as the saying goes. As such, increasing creativity is a good idea for any witch who wants to tailor make spells and rituals to suit their individual needs.

In additional, to spell work, witches often need creativity for many other reasons, sometimes for their career, sometimes for hobbies, or even home and family endeavors outside their spiritual life. As far as I am concerned, enhancing ones creativity is never a bad thing. Such as, creativity in balancing a budget comes in handy for those struggling with money trouble. Creativity in balancing time around a large family’s needs may be crucial in a family with varied interests as any parent with multiple children can tell you. Business owners may need creativity to help develop or grow their business and bring in additional revenue. Creativity on the job as an employee may help solve problems with “out of the box thinking” that leads to a desired promotion. The creativity needed to be a professional artist is fundamental, of course. Therefore, you can see that additional creativity can be of use in pretty much everyone’s life.

A poppet to draw in creativity can be made using any medium. Your creativity in creating your poppet for this particular endeavor will only increased the strength of the spell. Writing a unique parchment spell to include inside the poppet will also strengthen the spell. Create a poppet to represent the person for whom creativity is being drawn, the more creative the design, the better.

  • Poppet Idea: Linen or Cotton Material, Clay, Wood, Wax, Paper Mache, Combinations or Other Unique Ideas
  • Color: Orange
  • Herbs, plants, tree, etc: Carnation, Gingko Biloba, Horehound, Violet
  • Metal: Gold
  • Stones: Topaz, Turquoise, Sodalite, Rose Quartz, Tourmaline, Petrified Wood, Opal, Blue Calcite, Amber

The only real suggestion I have for this spell is to go all out in the decoration of the poppet. Be as unique as possible, as creative and ornate as you can imagine. The focus on the creativity you intend to draw and inspire, even while creating the poppet, will also translate into power as you contemplate ways of designing it, what to include inside it and what to use as a base for the poppet. If you are brave enough, use multiple mediums to complement each other, such as a Paper Mache head on a carved body with clothing created specifically to suit the poppet. You may choose to sew the body and make clay representations for the face, feet, and hands. Whatever you decide, make it unlike any other poppet you have ever constructed or even seen. Exercise your creativity to draw more creativity, the ways of the witch will win, if you do.
