Making A Sea Altar

An altar dedicated to the sea is a great way to connect and honor to it especially if you’re landlocked; but you might ask yourself: “How do I make one?” Well, you’d make it like you’d make any altar but you are going to need certain things to make it. Don’t worry, I’ll include where to find the items listed.

Must Haves:

  • Seashells
    If you’re landlocked most craft stores sell seashells, especially around the summer season. (HOWEVER DO NOT BUY NAUTILUS SHELLS, THEY’RE ENDANGERED.)
  • Sea salt
    Can be found at your local supermarket.
  • Homemade salt water
    Mix sea salt and water together and bam, there ya go.
  • Full Moon water
    You can make full moon water from the comfort of your home.
  • Seaweed snacks
    If you have a Wegmans around your area I know most of them sell organic seaweed snacks.
  • Sand
    Can be found at craft stores or a local Home Depot.
  • Blue candles
    The blue color representing the big blue.

Optional additions:

  • Aquamarine
    Can be found on Etsy but keep a close eye out for people selling fakes.
  • Ocean Jasper
    Again, can be found on Etsy but keep a close eye our for people selling fakes.
  • Pearls
    Can be found in any jewelry store.
  • Fish netting
    Most fishing and craft stores, especially around the summer season, will sell fish netting.
  • Framed pictures of sea animals
    You can get frames at any craft store and all you need is a printer to get the pictures themselves.
  • Shark teeth
    Shark teeth can be found on Amazon or Etsy.
  • Nautical jewelry
    Can be found Amazon or Etsy.

What NOT to put on your altar

  • Endangered sea species, ex: dead seahorses, nautilus shells
    If I have to explain why you shouldn’t put endangered species on your altar then I have very little hope for you.
