Being the spiritualist that I am, I love incorporating natural elements in my garden that are known for their energetic properties. Once such element is copper. I was browsing through the ‘Craft Bits’ website the other day and came across a Craft Project for making an amazing DIY Spiral Garden Charm and I fell in love with it and knew I just had to make one for my own garden.
In many spiritual traditions the spiral is considered a sacred symbol of the soul’s eternal nature. Megalithic and Neolithic cultures all over the globe used spirals in their art, and some of the best examples can still be seen throughout Celtic Europe, such as the entrance tomb of the Newgrange monument in Ireland.
Made from copper, a stimulating metal in magical theory, this pretty spiral garden charm is meant to promote the growth and health of your plants. Hang it from a tree or large shrub where the breeze can blow it gently and encourage the beads sparkle in the sun. If a particular plant is looking pale, hang the charm from or near it and see if it revives! Or simply enjoy the craft for what it is, a bit of whimsy to add beauty to your garden.
What You Will Need:
- 1 – 7 inch copper ring or a 7-inch wooden embroidery hoop covered in copper spray paint
- Approximately 6 feet of 16-gauge copper wire
- Assorted glass beads
- Utility scissors
- Needle-nose pliers
