Custom Jesus Icon: Self-Guided Icon Retreat!

Recently, I purchased this book Drawing Closer to Christ: A Self-Guided Icon Retreat by Joseph Malham* as I had heard of Icon Retreats before and was excited to try this at home!

The book is formatted with Scriptural and Theological reflections alongside step-by-step instructions to create a traditional painted Icon. I appreciated the special tips along the way, even though I opted to create a different image and use less traditional materials. While the author directs us to trace, etch and paint on a wood surface, I opted for a framed canvas from the dollarstore.  While I didn’t have access to traditional gold foil, my “gold spun” acrylic paint plus a little gold glitter paint added the texture and color and sparkle I was looking for.

Recycling Votive Candles

Do you have a few too many tired/well-used/burnt votive candles lying around the house? We did…and we decided to try recycling votive candles! We gave them new life with leftover wax and stubby candles…along with our favorite watercolored Kelly Saints from this craft kit. After having just released our new Lock Screen Prayer Prompts, I think I might need to recycle a couple more votives and adhere these images with Kelly Saints and Prayer Prompts: which is your favorite here?
