Now that the Yule decorations are down, the house seems less warm, so I like to get the Imbolc altar up right away for a little atmosphere.
Because Imbolc is all about the return of the light, I like to use plenty of candles. Cheap and slow-burning, tea candles are perfect for this Sabbat. I usually pick up a bulk bag of them and burn them throughout the Imbolc season.
I also pulled a string of lights from the Yule tree before putting it away. I think the white lights compliment Imbolc nicely.
The weather has been unseasonably pleasant this year in the North East, so I went on a little nature walk with my dog to pick up some natural beauty for the altar.
Last year, I spray painted acorns silver for that frosted look of winter. This year, I decided to do the same thing with pine cones. Instead of giving them a solid coat, I just lightly dusted them to give them the appearance of frost.
That’s all for now! Hope everyone is enjoying a beautiful winter season.
