Learn to make a voodoo doll to use as a focus for magical spells.

What is a voodoo doll? A voodoo doll is an object that acts as a focus for magical spells. Such dolls are technically termed "poppets". You can create one for any purpose desired: love, money, protection, health, even the usual revenge and such purposes for which people normally resort to voodoo dolls.

Not only can voodoo dolls be a fun way to relieve stress, but perhaps your focus on this one object might just bring about some results for you.

Voodoo doll FAQ

What is voodoo?

Voodoo is a form of magic or sorcery practiced with intent to target the person who is represented as the voodoo doll. A voodoo doll can be stuck with pins, set on fire or any form of harm done to it -- and sometimes they might even be used with good intent. This is intended to affect the person embodied by the doll.

Do voodoo dolls work?

It will work if you believe it will work. It will work better if you tell the person you are affecting and they also believe it will work. In short, your belief makes it so. If you don't believe, it is unlikely that anything will happen.

I am not responsible for any effects from this. You do it, it's your karma. Always be responsible when casting spells.

Just as a reminder, voodoo dolls are not always ill-wishes or malevolent intent. You can use them for positive effects if so desired.

Supplies needed to make a voodoo doll

  • piece of paper to make a template + pencil
  • fabric -- two pieces of equal size (I like to use felt or heavy cotton)
  • stuffing for the doll
  • needle and thread
  • scissors
  • supply of pins

Voodoo doll tutorial

  1. Draw your template in the shape of a person. It doesn't have to be too complicated: head, body, two arms, two legs.
  2. Cut out the template.
  3. Stack the two pieces of fabric together. Place the template on top and trace around the template.
  4. Cut out the two pieces. You should now have two body shapes.
  5. Sew the two body shapes together, leaving a gap at the head for stuffing.
  6. Stuff the body and sew the gap closed.
  7. Sew on some facial details if you wish (eyes and mouth, at least).
  8. The doll is done and ready for the spell!
