DIY Grimoire: Create Your Own Spellbook

A grimoire is a witch’s best friend. It’s one of the most important tools in your practice.

To put it plainly, it’s a book that contains spells. It holds all of your magical records and practices!

It traditionally contains spells, rituals, recipes, diagrams and more! You may choose to buy one pre-made, but being a witch is all about individuality!

So tune in because today we are making our very own Grimoire!

1. Decide on the Format of Your Grimoire

Depending on your preference you may choose to make a physical grimoiredigital grimoire.

Choose wisely because there are definitely both pros and cons for each one!

Physical Grimoire

For this grimoire, you’d need any format that includes 画笔纸张. It can be a basic journal or a binder where you can add pages to it.

You can buy a regular one from the bookshop or order a fancy ornate one online. Whatever suits you!

The physical grimoire allows you to handwrite your spells and make it your own!


  • 既然你是 handwriting everything, the grimoire will contain more of your energy
  • You can write anywhere as long as you take it with you
  • You won’t accidentally delete it


  • It will take you longer to complete
  • 这是 more difficult to make changes and get around in it
  • If you’re not artistic then you may not want to complete it
  • If you don’t like your handwriting you won’t go back to your previous work

2. Pick Your Journal

Once you have decided on the format, decide how it’s aesthetically going to look!

If you’re doing a physical grimoire you can choose from many types of journals out there: notebooks with blank, lined or grid pages, sketchbooks, leather-bound journals, binders, etc.

And if you’re choosing a digital grimoire, well… good for you I guess?

Decide if you want to decorate it with your own personal style, I vote yes since you’ll use it more if you love it! If you have a boring grimoire, you won’t be drawn to it.

Think about the size as well, you don’t want to be dragging around a huge book wherever you go! If you’re someone who travels a lot, a digital grimoire might be a better option!

3. Consecrate It

Before you start documenting your practice, you’ll want to consecrate your grimoire. It’s one of the most important tools in your craft and it needs to be filled with purpose.

你可以 write a blessing or intention on the first page, perform a ritual to consecrate itcast a spell to protect it!

Spending time with your grimoire will eventually make it more sacred, but doing these things at the very beginning will give it that special something!
