Yuletide Shopping Guide – Craft Molds for DIYers

I recently posted that because 2020 has been a challenging year I was putting together a Yuletide Shopping Guide with the intent to help artisan members of our community & to help spotlight items that support our religious devotions and practices. I know it’s early, but I wanted to go ahead and start spotlighting project materials that DIYers may want to use to make their own gifts this yuletide.

Molds can open up a wide range of possible creations for our DIYers: candles, soaps, jewelry, décor, paperweights statuary, candies, chocolates and more. While I’ll be spotlighting some polytheistic related items, I do offer a word of caution. Read the descriptions carefully at the seller’s listing to make sure the mold can be used for the purpose you would like. I have found some sellers will use the same product listing image to sell both the mold, and an item created from the mold. Or they’ll be selling items made from the mold with a note in the product description to contact them if you want to buy the mold. So it can be very confusing. Take your time and make sure you understand what you’re buying, and ask if you’re uncertain.


RussianMolds

RussianMolds offers silicone molds for gods and goddesses from both the Slavic Pantheon, and the Norse Pantheon. These offerings are in addition to a wide array of other molds.

CastleCandleShop

You can find both candles made from the molds, and the molds themselves in this shop for various Greco-Roman Goddesses, such as Hebe, Artemis, Venus. Word of caution, at this shop most of the listings are for candles made from the mold, but many of the product descriptions say you can inquire about purchasing the mold too.

Yuletide Shopping Guide – Cookie Cutters

I recently posted that because 2020 has been a challenging year I was putting together a Yuletide Shopping Guide with the intent to help artisan members of our community & to help spotlight items that support our religious devotions and practices. I know it’s early, but I wanted to go ahead and start spotlighting project materials that DIYers may want to use to make their own gifts this yuletide.

We’ll be starting off with some installments to help the bakers, crafters, and DIYers so that those who may want to create something for a yuletide gift can get their project materials before the holidays.  Today’s installment is for the bakers. The pandemic has had many of us returning to our kitchens, instead of eating out. With that shift, has come a huge explosion in baking, with kitchen spices being some of the most in demand items at many grocers. I think in times of stress we return to the comfort and warmth of our kitchens and hearths.


While these cookie cutters can be used to make edible sweet treats to appeal to the cookie monsters in your life, they can also be used for other purposes too like ornaments made out of polymer clay, or for applesauce and cinnamon ornaments used for the tree, in wreaths, garlands, and more.


BAKERLOGY

Bakerlogy offers an array of cookie cutters from symbols for Northern Tradition Polytheists, to Egyptian iconography that will appeal to Kemetics. There are also Celtic symbols and other links to the past: like the Venus of Willendorf, the Greenman, Cereberus. They also offer a range of other designs that are not sacred in origin too. All their cutters are made with dishwasher safe plastic, and can be purchased from either their main site, or their storefront on Etsy.

RUNIC COOKIES

Like their eponymous name would suggest, Runic Cookies offers cookie cutters for the Norse runes, as well as mjollnir (Thor’s Hammer), and some Slavic symbols too. All their cutters are made from stainless steel. You can find them online at Etsy.

Coming Soon for our creative makers you can expect to find resources to a variety of fabrics, craft moulds, patterns, and more! After that, we’ll transition to finished goods ready for purchase. If there’s something you think I should spotlight, please contact me and let me know.
