Making a staff for use in the woods or for use in magical rituals can be a fun project for any age!
What you will need:
Wood that is the proper height (any wood that feels good for you)
Pocket knife or knife
Candles to bless your staff
Collect the wood for your staff. An ideal walking staff should go up to your chin in length.
Remove any bark or notches that are on the stick.
Seal with wood stain. If you want to give your staff a clean and durable finish, stain it with a good wood finish or wipe the stain. Typically, you should do a few coats, wiping on a thin layer evenly, then wiping it off and applying more layers. Do at least 3, and do more coats to achieve a darker stain.
Charge or bless your staff. Put your lit candles around the staff and set positive intentions.
Blessings of Love and Light,
