Wool Brigid Doll
Updated: Feb 14, 2022
Brigid is a Celtic goddess that we honor during Imbolc. Brigid takes the form of maiden, mother, and crone and has many associations. She is the protector of the Eternal Flame and Sacred Healing Well. She is a goddess of childbirth, learning, fire, transformation, wisdom, and creativity. Traditionally Brigid Dolls are made of corn husks, but these dolls are made of wool roving to represent the significance of lambs during this Sabbat.

1. Twist some strands of wool and thread them through the wooden bead.
2. Tie the strands together.
3. Hot glue on either side of the bead and fold the wool down on each side over the glue.
4. Add a clump of wool between the two strands hanging from the bead. Use those two strands to tie a knot around the clump of wool.
5. Comb all the wool down so it is under the bead.
6. Set the doll on top of some twine (this will be the arms). Tie the twine and cut to length. You can add something into the twine. In the main photo above, I have added a very small sprig of flowers so that the doll is holding flowers.
7. If you want to hang up your doll, then use hot glue to attach a piece of twine to the top of the bead (the top and back of the doll's head). Tie the twine to make a loop.
8. Your doll is now ready for Imbolc!
