The month of October is dedicated to the rosary, and Catholic crafts are a great way to bring the faith to your children! Today, I wanted to share this interactive Rosary board, made by my friend Jessica.
Jessica was nice enough to type up a supply list and directions for us!
Catholic Craft Supplies Needed:
- 23”x 30” drawing board
- 2” wooden circle pieces (qty 6)
- 1.5” wooden circle pieces (qty 53)
- Small Rosary book
- Acrylic Sealer
- Wood Glue
- Mod Podge
- Blue acrylic paint
- Paint brushes
Begin with a drawing board from Hobby Lobby. They are priced $19.99 and located in the
art department. Utilize a 40% off coupon to drop the price to $12. Using the acrylic paint,
paint your wooden pieces on the curved side and one flat side. I used a baby blue shade
of blue. After allowing those to dry, lay out the wooden pieces in the shape you desire for
your rosary. After cutting out each mystery from the Rosary book, lay out the mysteries to
make sure it all fits. Glue the mysteries down to the board using Mod Podge. You will need
to coat the entire board with Mod Podge before you glue the wooden pieces down. Once
dry, using wood glue, attach the wooden pieces in the desired location. Attach a crucifix
and if desired, connect the wood pieces with a black sharpie by drawing a line in between
the wooden pieces.
We use a plastic statue of Mary and Joseph while saying the rosary. One of them is placed
on the picture of the decade that we are saying and the other piece is moved after each
prayer. This is a great way to engage the younger children and keep their interest!
Thanks so much for sharing this Catholic Rosary craft, Jessica!
I haven’t made one of these yet, but this is so nice and built to last! I think you could make a simpler one out of foam board and poker chips. (You think it’s ok to use poker chips for a Rosary craft? Maybe there’s a better idea out there. Leave it in the comments. lol!)
