portable little altars
these are perfect for people on the go or for people like me who are stuck in the broom closet. they are very discreet if you don't decorate the outside.

    Step 4

    gather your objects that you are going to put in the tin. I have some white birthday candles, a bit of mirror, s seashell, some matches, scraps of paper, a small pen, and some various crystals and rocks.
    I have something that I use as a representation of each of the elements.
    candles: fire
    crystals: earth
    seashell: water
    and the matches are kind of a combination of air and fire.

    Step 5

    stick all of your objects inside of your tin and you're good to go! keep in mind that you can customize your pocket altar however you see fit. some keep incense or vials of oil in theirs. I had neither so I obviously didn't put those in mine. you can keep those things, leaves and herbs, anything you see fit.
