Christ the King Craft {Liturgical Ornament}

Here is our ornament for Christ the King of the Universe. This feast day moves each year, but it always falls on the Sunday before the First Sunday of Advent.
To create this ornament you will need:
  • black felt
  • white felt (with glitter if you want)
  • yellow felt
  • light blue felt
  • brown felt
  • tan or peach felt
  • green permanent sharpie marker
  • red permanent sharpie marker (optional)
  • gold glitter glue
  • silver glitter glue
  • scissors (these kind work well)
  • glue (hot glue, felt glue,  or tacky glue - like this or this)
  • thread and needle for the looped hanger

First cut out the peices like those pictured above. Use a green marker to add land to the half-circle blue earth. We added a little red to the scepter, but this is optional. 
Now glue the earth to the bottom of your black background. Add Jesus body on the very top of the earth - only glue it in the middle. Next, lift up the body and add the arms and feet. Now finish gluing down the body.  
Now add his head and beard. Add his hands, too.
Next add his hair, crown, and scepter. Cut off the extra background.
Add gold glitter glue to his crown and scepter. Add silver glitter glue to the black background so it looks more like space. 
Once it's dry add a looped thread and hang it up!

Our Lord, Jesus, pray for us!
May He bless you all!

  1. Hey Jen~ Love the ornaments....all your Nov orn came to my inbox this AM. I've pinned them all, tho we haven't made any! Perhaps in the future. I've gotten great ideas tho, from you. Love how you add glitter to the background. Perfect.
    And you'er introducing me to sains that I did not know about! Shame on me! Thanks for the insight!

    I'd def make those cupcake toppers today, but after days of eating and being surrounded by cupcakes and treats at Timmy's bday Fri, AND soccer trophy day Sat and then a Thxgiving feast with the cast of the play he is rehearsing for today, whew, I think we're gonna shy away from the food...BUT I hope to use the toppers on a future feast day.

    Thanks for a ll you've done to create and share these! You may have said how you display them, but I missed it. Are you placing these on a "liturgical year tree?" I'll bet they'd look gorgeous hung all in one area in a family room!

    Jen happy Feast of Christ the King!!

    "See" you online soon!

  2. Thank you, Chris! Some of these are new saints to me, too! The ornaments are so nice because it helps keep the kids interested. They look forward to seeing which one comes next and they like to try to remember who is who on the tree.

    I haven't done a post on how we are using them yet. You aren't the first person to ask ether. I do intend on doing one, but I just can't seem to find the time!!

    Hope you are having a great week!
    Talk to you later!
