How to make Altoid Tin Traveling Altars

How to make Altoid Tin Traveling Altars

One Project me and Vadora love to do is Building Altars together
as We love to travel and we want to take a bit of our Altars with us on the Road

So today I will Show you and Give you Ideas how to make your own Traveling Altar
Pagans and Wiccans honor Different Deities so make one that best fits you and your Deity

What you want to do is come up with an idea of what you want your Tin Altar to look like

Yes They do Sell Blank Altoid Tins you find them in craft stores usually 10 pack for 5 bucks

Some people have asked me that the Altoid tins have an Embossed Lettering
This is Simple to Fix

What you need is Blank Index Cards This is to Cover up the Embossed Lettering
on the inside and out
That is just an Example to give you an idea

Once you Figure out what Style and Theme of a Traveling Altar you are going for
you will need

Altoid Tins
Mod Podge
For the People who do not know what Mod Podge is
its Decoupage Glue for Crafts
Decorations such as Crystals , Glassbeads , Plastic Beads , Glitter, Paint
Gemstones , Sand , Ribbon ,

Mini Tools
Goddess / God Symbols
Voodoo Symbols
Sigil Symbols
I can not Tell you how to Decorate an Altar for you
All I can do is Share some Tin Altars to Inspire you to make one that best suits you

If you Buy the Blank Altoid Tins you can Emboss the Tins with a Stamp like this one

make Baron Samedi Altars and Voodoo Themed ones
to make Mini Day of the dead skulls simply use
Skulls beads usually sold in costume shops at halloween time
and Paint them and enjoy

Have fun making your own
