Low Budget Vulture Culture Gift Ideas
•Do they like reading?
Make a bookmark! You could use fur, feathers, bones, etc. I’m currently making one for my sister that’s faux leather with a bone tied around the top part that would stick out of the book. (It’s also going to have the hermit tarot card on it!!!). Just make sure the bookmarks flat! And if you don’t have fabric to spare, use paper! It really doesn’t have to cost much to make
•What’s their favorite color?
Due to my sisters OCD and OCPD, she can only own things of certain colors. So I’m putting together a tin of bones, rocks, and knick knacks (like buttons) of those colors. I found out I already had a lot of that stuff!
•Do you use matches?
I made a small goodluck box for myself out of an old matchbox, and carry it with me everywhere. I painted the box, cut up thin cardboard to divide the inside into sections, and put small bones in it. You could also put claws, dried rodent feet, teeth, etc. in the box.
•Would they like regular VC items?
If they’d be okay with display pieces, take an old small bottle or glass container of any kind, take a mouse heart (frozen mice are like $3 at a pet store), put it in alcohol, and bam! $3 wet specimen.
•Are they Christian?
I’m not, but my aunt collects crosses. So one year I made her a cross out of dear bones and leather string. You could use any bones, let bones work best. If you wanna use smaller bones, you could make a Christmas ornament. Bigger crosses could hang on a wall.
•Are they a vulture?
Make them Vulture Culture stickers! All you need to make lick and stick stickers is elmers school glue and vinegar. Mix it 1:1 and paint onto the back of your sticker designs on regular paper, cut them out, and bam! Stickers.
