You can use the same technique with anything, from washing line to jungle vine, from straw to fabric, from metal wire to fishing line, and make your juju, moppet or poppet in any size at all. Jujus, magic dolls, poppets or moppets have 1001 magical uses, so be inventive!

Step 1 is to get your juju or moppet making material ready.

For this example I've used knitting wool in the 3 German colours because its easier to see.

Juju Making Top Tips:

  • The thinner the line, the smaller the juju or just use lots more.
  • Very thick material is not workable for small jujus or moppets.
  • Match your material and the colour of the material to the magical intention.
  • Clean your materials magically and bless them as well as any tools you'll be using before you start.
  • Have an intention what the juju or moppet is for before you start.

Start by making a loop of wool about three times the size of the size of the juju.

Now make a knot. That's going to be the juju's head.

Make a second, slightly shorter loop for the juju's arms.

Make two knots either end. Those are going to be the juju's hands.

Split the wool under the juju's head in half.

Lay the arms in between the top and bottom layer.

Push them up firmly under the juju's head.

Use a piece of wool to make the juju's bodice and to hold the arms firmly in place.

Wrap round the juju's bodice

Now split the bottom loop sideways to make the juju's legs.

Cut the looped strings so they are open.

Note: If you want to make a girl juju with a skirt instead of two legs, you can just trim the bottom at this point.

 

 

For the standard juju, tie off the legs to make his feet.

Trim off extra bits of string from the hands and feet.

And here we are - a basic juju, ready for hair dressing and to decorate further if you want.

A tip - you can carefully comb out his hair to make it fuzzy or more hair like, then braid it again if you want.

Once you can make a basic juju or moppet, you can personalise them in many different ways.

If you wanted to, you could sew a little face on your moppet.

Note: This moppet has been tied up with sewing yarn instead of making knots to make the hands smaller and more elegant, and to be able to use more wool for the skirt and the hair.

Too much wool and the knots become too big.

You can make them even smaller if you use yarn instead of wool for the body too.

Tiny little juju, moppet or poppet

Here are some ideas for making jujus, magic dolls, moppets or poppets.

In general, jujus are helpful little spirits so they're good for:

  • Good luck charms
  • Protection charms (in kids rooms, cars, for sick people)
  • Bringing in a joyful spirit of your choice
  • For use as worry dolls (you can make a set of the tiny jujus in the chakra colours if you worry a lot)
  • Love gifts (making a special juju for a special person)
  • Basic spirit dolls
  • To represent Project Sanctuary friends in the Hard.

Making jujus, moppets and poppets is very relaxing, therapeutic and meditative.

With a bit of creativity added, you can make your jujus into little fairies, or give them some wings to make little angels if that fits better with your religious views. The idea of bringing in the support of loving, friendly, helpful little spirits is the same.

A fun magic thing to do for kids and beginners, and for the more advanced energy magician, a powerful and delightful way to make some magic that is modern as well as primal and always personal and effective.

Worry Dolls

Worry Dolls

I really enjoyed making the teensy juju for this article so I made a set of Worry Dolls.

They are really neat. They can worry about stuff for you but they can also do other things.

You can give each one a task to do, or a wish, a want, something to sort out.

I was quite intrigued what I asked mine to do and I thoroughly enjoyed making them.

Have a go!


Q: Can you make a magic JuJu for me?

I get asked that a lot and yes, I can, but it takes a lot of time and energy. As a result, a bespoke JuJu is not cheap.

As each one is unique and specifically created for each recipient, there can be no refunds, and obviously I do not know what colour or shape your JuJu will take before I come to make it.

If you would like to order a custom magic JuJu, please include the following information:

- The recipient's name;

- The purpose of the the JuJu (you can add numerous positives, such as LUCK + PROTECTION + HEALTH + HAPPINESS etc)
