How to Make a Faerie Altar ~ Creating Sacred Space for Fairy Communication and Faerie Magic

Whether you are just starting to work with faeries or are experienced in working with the Fey, it is a good idea to create a personal area in which to meditate, create magic and work with the faeries.

Locating Your Faerie Altar
Depending on space, your altar could be a vast decadent table, or a small tribute on a shelf. It should ideally be tucked away in a quiet room or corner, where you can get to it easily and be able to work undisturbed.

Place it in a room that has meaning for you. A kitchen witch might choose to locate the altar in her kitchen, while an artist might prefer their studio or craft room. Another ideal spot is wherever the garden is visible, or even in a summerhouse or potting shed, where you can truly be at one with nature and her spirits! You can also create an outdoor faerie altar to use in warmer weather.

Making a Faerie Altar
Your altar can take the shape of a shelf, a table, or even an entire dresser or display unit. You could even decorate an entire room in honour of the faeries!

Choose a special piece of furniture, or make it yourself, remembering to use sustainable wood. If you are not DIY-minded, you can buy specially carved altars, or simply add your own touch by painting and embellishing what you have.

What to Put on a Faerie Altar
Focus on natural, faerie-related items, choosing nature-inspired colours. Place on your altar any meaningful natural objects you encounter, such as acorns, flowers or feathers. Keep your special faerie wand here. Create a treasure box of smaller items to keep them dust free, and place candles, crystals, earth and incense upon your shrine to represent the four elements.

If you work with particular faeries or a certain Faerie King or Queen, think about what represents them. Faerie ornaments, art and your own handcrafted creations are also perfect!

Don’t forget to also leave offerings to the faeries, so they know it is their special area.

Keeping Your Faerie Altar Fresh
It is important not to allow your faerie altar to grow stale. Change the arrangement and contents regularly to keep the interest of the faeries. Remember to also keep your altar clean and dust-free, as faeries cannot abide a dirty house, let alone a neglected altar!

Celebrating Seasons and Festivals with Your Faerie Altar
Another way to keep your altar fresh is to change the contents with the passing seasons, or decorate them according to the wheel of the year. Choose seasonal colours and foliage. If you take anything from nature, always ask permission of the plant or tree, and leave something in return.

Use your altar to focus your intent on the specific event, and ask the faeries to celebrate with you.

Faerie Spells for Your Faerie Altar
Use your altar as a focal point for spells and charms. Keep a special box for your magical tools and faerie wand. Faeries often teach spells and recipes, so keep a note of these in a faerie journal, asking the faeries to bless it each time you return it to the altar.

The altar is the ideal place to keep spell candles burning and charms working their magic. Put ingredients such as herbs and crystals in pretty jars and bowls, so they are aesthetic as well as practical.

Finally, enjoy your faerie altar! Creating a beautiful space inspired by the energy and magic of the Fey will bring joy and pleasure, which is exactly what the faeries want you to experience.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
