yellow twig dogwood, red osier dogwood, dogwood sticks, wrapped wire

Yellow twig and red osier dogwood combine in these colorful contrasting stick bouquets. Dogwood has twisty curvy shapes, textured bark and lots of forks which makes them ideal for rustic twig bouquets, dried arrangements, altar decor, or centerpieces. Each bundle has 10-12 sticks, up to 20" long, and 1/4" to 3/8" thick. The bundles are wrapped together with covered wired, but you can take them apart and use the sticks however you like.

These dogwood sticks were carefully pruned from trees I planted in 2001. They are perfect for your mixed media nature craft projects, magical uses, fairy house construction, and woodworking crafts. These sticks could be cut up for charms, incense, smudge, amulets, carvings, or other magical tools or rituals. They could be small wands, or would be beautiful in a mobile, to hang a weaving or wall hanging, make a frame with, decorate your fairy house, make stick stars or pentacles, sculpture, dried arrangements, winter bouquets, wreaths or other nature art.

The berries, leaves, and bark of the dogwood historically have a reputation for granting wishes and protection and have long been used in folk magic spells and amulets. This wood is linked magically to warrior heroism, and superhuman physical prowess. Dogwood also is linked to the healing and protection of dogs, and to help foster their loyalty and affection.

More magical applications of osier dogwood include evocation of ancestors, renewal of fertility cycles, consecration of hearth or ritual fires, and giving of healing, protection and comfort.

What is the significance of the fork? Ancient civilizations believed that animals with horns or antlers possessed heightened senses, as horns were perceived as conduits of knowledge and intuition from spiritual entities.

A stang wand or forked staff is used to cast circles, or draw a circle upon the ground around onesself, to define a sacred space for rites, spells or invocations. Once driven into the earth, a stang can be used as a conduit to call up spirits from the underworld.

Dogwood is also one of the nine woods traditionally placed in the traditional Celtic Druid balefire: apple, cedar, dogwood, elder, holly, juniper, oak, poplar, and rowan.

Other sacred and ritual woods available - please convo me with your needs.
