As seen on True Detective: Devil traps are a Louisiana folk magic tradition, they are like a cross between a protection ju ju and a Native American dream catcher. They are placed or hung around the home or any area where you want protection from evil spirits. They say the evil spirits get curious about them and enter them to take a look and to unwrap the feathers or sticks and once in they can't get out. They are ensnared by the various things the trap is made out of.
Because of the nature of their construction, the photos are representative of what you will receive but are not exact replicas. They are constructed out of sticks, feathers, bones and other natural elements and are around 10 to 12 inches tall. They can stand on their own or be hung from a tree or anywhere you wish to repel evil and negativity.
