You can make a fairly useful prop using almost exclusively recycled materials and junk.
For this one you will need:
discarded plastic water bottles
a juice bottle
a fist-sized chunk of old styrofoam
masking tape (maybe a whole roll, probably less)
You can scarcely find an illustration of a witch's kitchen or wizard's sanctum without an anthropomorphic mandragora root. It's a necessity! But I don't think they sell them anywhere.
This is likely one of the easiest things you will ever make, but I am very satisfied with mine.
