so perhaps what I have isn't really a "Witch Ball", but lets just call it that for simplicity's sake. *smile*

These balls are more of a charm for your home or room. It is up to you which one you make, they are all so easy. The hardest part about them is finding the clear glass ball to make them in Perhaps at JoAnn Fabric or a store of that nature will carry them year round. In any event, on with the show

There are basic materials needed for each ball no matter which one you make.
You will need paint in color that corresponds with your intentions. (There will be colors listed with the various balls)
You will need the glass ball
You will need herbs that correspond with your intentions. (These will be listed as well)
You will need ribbon in a color that corresponds with your intentions.

Herbs Needed
Colors Used

Angelica, Basil, Cinnamon, Cinquefoil, Clove, Mugwort, Oak, Sage, Willow, Witch Hazel, Violet
Black, Blue, White

Catnip, Lavender, Meadowsweet, Marjoram, Hawthorn, St. Johnswort
White, Red, Pink, Blue

Allspice, Apple, Cedar, Cinnamon, Elder, Flax, Oak, Onion, Pine, Sandalwood, Spearmint, Thistle, Thyme, Violet, Willow
Blue, Red

Allspice, Cotton, Fern, Nutmeg, Oak, Orange, Pineapple, Poppy, Rose

Carrot, Fig, Grape, Hazel, Mandrake, Nuts, Oak, Olive, Patchouli, Peach, Pine, Poppy, Rice, Sunflower, Wheat

Ok first you want to take the paint, the color you have chosen to use, and coat the inside of the ball. Allow the excess to drain by placing the ball upside down in a jar or glass. Once the ball is completely dry, (this may take a day or two depending on the type of paint you used) you will want to add the herbs you have chosen. You can use all the ones listed (which are by no means the final word on herb correspondences) or you can use some or only one, it's up to you.

The ribbon is for decorating and again, you can use all the colors or just one, or a couple, it matters not. You get to decorate the ball any way you want, just so long as you keep the the colors. Keep your intention in mind the whole time you are making the ball. Pour your energy into it as you pour in the herbs. Hang it somewhere special to you, where you think it will do the most good!
