I was just admiring pretty alters online and thought I’d share what I found. I’m sure that there may be official rules on creating an alter but for me I go by my intuition and it never fails me. A lot of times I’ll not do something because I feel like I have to do it the “right way”. I’m learning to just do what makes me happy and these make me happy. So I say if you want to make an alter make it so it pleases you. It can be super tiny or as large as a full room.
Here’s a beautiful wall alter that’s little and beautiful.
“This shrine is where I keep my hallows (fire, well, tree) as well as the icons of my patrons, Cerridwen and Cernunnos. I also keep here a bracelet given to my grandfather from my grandmother as a token of my ancestors.”
