Handmade Elder Futhark Runes #witchcraft #fortunetelling #HalloweenDecorations

Elder Futhark Runes are the oldest of the runic alphabets, the writing system of the ancients. No witch worth her salt would be without a set of runes with which to code spells and foretell the future so naturally, I made my own.

As you must be painfully aware by now, The Witch at OneandSeventy’s Halloween Home is centred around magic, witches and their craft. Surprise!

Well… they say write about what you know.

And this year is no different.

Halloween visitors are greeted by a new and improved Haunted Hallway, with its Hogwarts candlesGothic windows, magical toolbox, and spooky stalwart, Wilko’s haunted clock.

From there, they move into OneandSeventy Dining Room, which has been transformed into a Carnevil Circus Tent, complete with creepy clowns.

Personally, I don’t get the whole clown thing, but even I have to admit this vintage musical clown is pretty freaky!

As a Gypsy Fortune Teller plies her trade to a dearly departed Mumma and her offspring, Madame Florentia makes predictions from the comfort of her fortune teller booth.

The OneandSeventy kitchen is now a medieval scullery and home to a spell-casting, brew-making, macabre-looking kitchen witch.

She’s incredibly busy at this time of year perfecting potions and handing out sugary treats. And she’s not beyond boiling up greedy little trick or treaters in her giant cauldron!

Naturally, our kitchen witch is an expert rune reader, so I knocked her up a set of Elder Futhark runes using air-dry clay (which incidentally, seems to be the cheapest in The Range.)

They were dead easy to make. All I did was print and cut out some rune tiles I found online, then I traced each one onto a flattened ball of clay with the end of a thin paintbrush.

Once they were dry, I painted them up with a little acrylic.

They really couldn’t be more simple.

And that’s from someone who can’t draw or sculpt!

I originally thought these Elder Futhark runes might go into the Fortune Teller room, but I think their rustic appearance belongs with the kitchen witch, don’t you?

As always, I’d love to hear from you. Did you like this post? Drop a comment below to let me know. Maybe you’re a kitchen witch in need of your own set of runes? These are perfect. Just make sure you prepare them for magickal intent before use.

A hui hou,
