When Sarah at Plainsong came up with the idea of having a Craft Club designed for ‘craft challenged mums’ I thought I’d found my niche.
In honour of the Month of the Most Holy Rosary we designed a rosary poster.
Materials needed are: Scrapbook sheets or posterboard.
Paper punch (circle shape)and cardstock or crepe paper
Toothpicks and cotton thread
Holy Card or ‘google image’
To begin the craft you need to punch out 59 circles with the paper punch. If you don’t have cardstock you can use any colour paper, we preferred blue and turned the circles over to the white for the ‘Our Father’s’
For the little fingers the punch is too difficult (or perhaps you don’t have one) so I suggest using crepe paper instead, for my little one we only attempted a Rosary Chaplet but an older child could create the entire Rosary. Have the child tear of strips of paper and roll into a ball. For the white ‘Our Father’ we used a corner of a tissue.
Once the circles are punched out begin laying the ‘beads’
To complete our Rosary we broke toothpicks in half for the cross, before gluing to the page I suggest tying them securely with cotton thread. For the center the children selected holy cards but you could also ‘google images’ if you didn’t have holy cards available.
We have decided to display our posters on our altar for the month of October. Enjoy!
