What is a poppet? A poppet is a doll made of cloth and stuffed with herbs. Wiccans often make a poppet to represent themselves.
Poppets are easy to make. Take two rectangular pieces of cloth. Draw a human shape (like a ginger bread man) on one piece of your fabric.
Lay one piece on top of the other and cut out the shape. You should have two cut out pieces of cloth that are the same shape and size.
Next start with the body and sew up both sides together, sewing everything but the head; leave that open.
You’ll need to decide which herbs will best suit your desires. For example, one might use cinnamon (yes, I know it is a spice) to attract money. Another example: to attract love and friendship, you can choose to use rose petals.
Take your herbs and your poppet. Once you have filled the body, sew up the head to seal the herbs inside. You can add hair or other features to your doll to make it look more like you.
Hold your completed poppet in your hands and visualize your intent. You can chant to help charge your poppet.
When you are done, place the poppet in a safe place where it will not be disturbed until you need to use it again.
