Ultimate Resource Guide for Little Painted (and Printable) Saints!

We’ve been building our collection of little Wooden Painted Saints…and we decided to make a Gallery of all the posts we’ve written about them…including a Tutorial with hints and tips to make them and ways to use them, play with them and stage and store them!

[print_gllr id=11230]

The NUMBER ONE question at conferences we attend is…

do you SELL your little Painted Saints?

St Catherine St John St Joan St Gemma

Sorry! We don’t sell them…but this Tutorial offers tips to make them as easily as possible!


We also have the Decoupage Saints Tutorial converting Catholic Icing’s 3.5″ saints to our smaller 1.75″ size. All you have to do is paint the head, mod podge the body (printable) in place and add a layer of mod podge or glaze to seal it!

Catholic Painted Saint Doll Swaps are also getting really popular…here are some excellent posts about setting that up…either online or with your favorite group of Church or homeschooling Moms!

  1. Love these and am looking forward to diving in soon. I note that there are several “duplicate” entries on the guide where different pictures have the same links. Could you please check? Thanks!

    • Thanks, Michael for the comment…and for noticing that a couple links lead to the same post. Some of my posts include a couple ideas…so I couldn’t resist including the different pictures in case they entice my readers…particularly the “Playtime with the Saints”. I’m hoping the different playsets spark interest…we never know what toys families have in their closet. =)
