Whether you believe in voodoo or not, making a voodoo doll of someone who has caused you pain can be therapeutic. You can make your doll look more like your enemy by using a small photograph of him. The doll will also be more authentic if you include real hair, clothing or personal possessions from the subject. When your doll is complete, you can torture your victim in effigy by sticking pins in the voodoo doll.
1. Step 1
Find a stick that's about 6 inches long. Place it vertically on your work surface. Place another shorter stick, around 3 to 4 inches long, horizontally across the longer stick so that they cross each other. Wrap a piece of string around the intersection between the sticks and tie the ends tightly together.
2. Step 2
Wrap the Spanish moss around the place where the two sticks cross. Continue wrapping until the entire surface of both sticks has been completely enclosed in moss. Spanish moss is essential to making a truly authentic New Orleans-style voodoo doll. However, if you can't find the moss, use craft batting.
3. Step 3
Tear some fabric into long strips. Wrap the fabric around the voodoo doll base, leaving some of the moss or stuffing exposed at the ends of the sticks. Use hot glue to secure the ends of the strips to the voodoo doll.
4. Step 4
Make the doll's face look like your victim. For best results, cut out a photograph of the face of the person you would like the voodoo doll to look like. Ensure that the picture is about the same size as the voodoo doll's head. Spread a small amount of hot glue on the doll's head, then attach the picture.
5. Step 5
Look at the intended victim to see how she dresses. Find or make clothing for that is similar to the clothing she wears, and use it to dress your doll. If possible, get an actual piece of clothing that she has worn before and use it to make the doll's garments.
6. Step 6
Add some hair to your voodoo doll. For best results, find a sample of the victim's hair. If you can't get that, use feathers or get some synthetic hair from a wig or another doll. Ensure that the hair is about the same color and texture as the hair of the person you're modeling. Arrange it carefully and glue it to the top of the voodoo doll's head. Do not hot glue synthetic hair, as it will melt.
Tips & Warnings
* If you can't get clothing or hair from your victim, look for other items such as fingernail clippings or small objects that he's used and discarded. Enclose these under the fabric wrapping or use them to decorate the doll.
