Make potent mojo bags to celebrate Mardi Gras. These bags use kitchen witchery, crystal magic, and color magic to create Mardi Gras-themed charms. Combine simple ingredients, cloth, and ribbon to make bags for power, justice, and faith.
Mardi Gras means "Fat Tuesday", and it is a celebratory season of excess that occurs before the fasting of Lent. Traditional Mardi Gras colors are purple, green, and gold. These colors have come to be associated with certain traits: gold for power, purple for justice, and green for faith. Use the powerful energy of Mardi Gras to make your own mojo bags for power, justice, and faith.
