St. John Paul II Craft {Liturgical Ornament}

Recently canalized John Paul II celebrates his feast day on Oct. 22. Read about him HERE.

To make this ornament you will need:
  • white felt
  • light blue felt
  • yellow felt
  • peach felt
  • brown permanent sharpie marker
  • yellow permanent sharpie marker
  • scissors (these kind work well)
  • glue (hot glue, felt glue,  or tacky glue - like this or this)
  • needle and thread for the looped hanger
Cut out the parts as pictured above. Use a brown sharpie marker to add the buttons to the cassock.

Glue down the bottom-buttoned part of the cassock onto the blue background.

Add the upper part with the split in the middle.

Now glue down the head.

Add the little zucchetto.

Next, add the yellow cross using the two yellow parts.

Using brown and yellow markers draw on the "chain". Use only a very light dots of brown and wait for it to dry before adding the yellow.
Add a threaded loop to the top to hang it up.

St. John Paul II, pray for us.
