Lent Crafts

Looking for crafts to do at home, with what you have on hand?

We sifted through our archives and these are the simplest crafts we found for Lent!

Good Deed Bead Bracelets with pony beads and pipe cleaners

Good Deed Bead Bracelets with pony beads and pipe cleaners make an easy bracelet with a built-in prayer or sacrifice counter! 10 beads make a decade, space an additional 5 for the five decades and wear the bracelet all Lent with renewed dedication to the Rosary!

Alternatively, a Good Deed Bead Bracelet can be made with durable paracord or delicate but sturdy satin cord. The cord is threaded through both sides of each pony bead, allowing the beads to slide and stay in place to keep track of prayers and sacrifices.







The Egg Carton Passion Play is a classic! Our 1.25″ peg people fit perfectly within the Egg Carton set and the number of participants in the Passion Play is only limited by the number of characters you want to paint!

The Egg Carton People are a whole other layer of fun! I originally found the directions here and tweaked my collection to include Mary and St John Paul II.
