Here is some crafty and altar ideas for Mabon. As apples are an important symbol of the season, you could make apple candle holders by coring the top off a pair of apples. An apple garland could also be fun, which involves drying out sliced apples in the oven, and stringing them into a garland. Another important symbol of this time is grapes, vines and acorns, all holding in them the promise of a new harvest next year and would be a great addition to the altar. An unusual but an apt statue to place on the altar would be a scarecrow as it can be a symbol of keeping the crows (negative thoughts) away from the seeds that you have planted.
