A collection of Yule Altar Items on a basket.

Make a Yule Altar for Winter Solstice

Yule is a winter solstice witch party celebrating the longest darkest night of the year and a return to the light. An easy way to honor this shift in seasons is by creating a Yule altar.

A Yule altar need not be difficult and all items may be scavenged from what you already have laying around your home and by stepping outside your door into nature.

Items to Collect & Forage for your Yule Altar:

  • Evergreen branches
  • Holly
  • Bells
  • Citrus Fruits
  • Cinnamon Sticks, nutmeg, cloves
  • Altar knives (also called anthame)
  • Pinecones
  • Candles

My advice is to to get intuitive about decorating your altar, go for a walk in nature and collect what Mother Earth gifts you.

I like to place my altar on the kitchen table, cook up some deliciousness, and gather around with those I love in celebration.

Happiest of Yule my witch friends!
