You can create a Solar Wheel or a Corn Man Wheel using a wire coat hanger, cardboard, and several ears of Indian corn complete with the husks.

Magickal Uses:

The wheel can then be used to decorate your altar, or you could hang it on your door as a decoration and a celebration of the wheel of the year. Corn is a symbol of fertility, and a Solar Wheel invokes the power of the Sun to bring health and happiness to your home.

Here is how to make it:

  • Bend a wire hanger into a circle keeping the hook to hang it by.
  • Cut out a small cardboard circle to glue the tips of the ears of corn onto.

You may want to create your Corn Man Wheel as a pentagram using five ears, or a Solar Wheel using eight ears to represent one ear for each Sabbat.

  • Attach the ears of Indian corn around the perimeter of the wire circle.
  • Wrap the husks around and glue where necessary, leave some of the husks hanging loose to fray out from the edges and make it more decorative.
  • Where the ears of corn meet in the center, glue them together. This is where the cardboard circle comes in to use.
  • Sprigs of wheat, dried flowers, and herbs can be used as decorative filler between the ears of corn.

Here are a variety of different wheels and wreaths that can be made to celebrate the season and the Corn.

And this is a simple idea to gift back to the wild ones who live all around us.

Ingredients:

  • 20 drops clove bud oil
  • 25 drops sandalwood oil
  • 1 cup oak moss
  • 2 cups dried pink rosebuds
  • 2 cups dried red peony petals
