Month of May ~ Month of Mary

Can you believe it? The Month of May starts this Sunday! May is devoted to Our Lady…so here’s a quick little showcase of Mary and Rosary crafts!

Our oversized wood bead Rosary is always a hit at the conferences we attend. This is a pretty simple craft made with wooden beads, a wooden cross and a wooden heart, acrylic paint and mod podge…and it’s one of the favorites in our book A Treasure Chest of Traditions for Catholic Families!

DIY Journaling Bible

Last week, I posted a picture tutorial for turning my softcover Catholic Bible into a DIY Hardcover Bible!

That’s what I’ve been doing!

DIY Hardcover for Catholic Bible Journaling

I’ve been eyeing this Journaling Bible, but I haven’t hit the buy button because it’s not a Catholic translation.  There is the NRSV Notetaker’s Bible which is an approved Catholic translation, but it’s out of print and crazy expensive!

Priest Car

So, 5 year old Adam saw the pieces I’ve received in the mail to make our first ever Play Mass kit. He asks me everyday if it’s finished. When I told him that I also needed to make some priest vestments…he dragged my sewing machine up for me, from the basement. It took 2 hands…and a little dragging, but the sewing machine still works. =)

Painted Saints Church in a Wooden Box (Part II)

Recently, I used the Cathedral Clipart Craft Kit to convert this wooden lunchbox from Michaels…into a Church for our little Painted Saints!

Check out Painted Saint Church TO GO!

Just to prove that our craft kit is versatile…and after converting a Michaels wooden barn and a Goldfish Cracker Box to a Church, I picked up a couple other boxes from Michaels to make a few different styles of Church play sets for our Painted Saints.

I’ve been shopping for hinged unfinished boxes for an even easier Painted Saint Church

…an easy box to find at the craft store… and easy to mod-podge the Cathedral clipart!

You might remember the barn-converted-to-Church.
