Thank you to all those who messaged me to inform me of the broken links. I'm not sure why the server is down for some of the files, but I am trying to figure out what happened. Please be patient with me. Thank you and God bless!

NEW UPDATE: Nov 11, 2018
We are still having difficulty with our files. I have been moving them to a new site. Visit www.catholicinspired.site to see the files that have been moved. My progress is slow, but I don't have a lot of free time. Thanks for your understanding. God bless.

St. Martin de Porres Craft {Liturgical Ornament}

St. Martin de Porres, also known as, the Saint of the Broom, celebrates his feast day on November 3 (new and traditional calendars). He lived from 1579 to 1639 and he's the patron of African-Americans; against rats; barbers; hair stylists; hotel-keepers; mixed-race people; poor people; public education; public health; racial harmony; etc. Read more HERE
To create this ornament you will need:
  • yellow felt
  • white felt
  • black felt
  • dark brown felt
  • medium brown felt
  • light blue felt
  • black permanent sharpie marker
  • orange permanent sharpie marker 
  • brown permanent sharpie marker
  • scissors (these kind work well)
  • glue (hot glue, felt glue,  or tacky glue - like this or this)
  • thread and needle for the looped hanger
Cut out the parts as pictured above. Use an orange marker to add an edge to the halo. Use a brown and black marker to add detail to the broom. And use black marker to make the hair and face on the head.
Glue the robe and halo to the blue back ground add the black scapular to the front of the white robe.
Glue the black collar to the top of the robe - only glue it in the middle. Lift the sides to add the arms. once you see the arms will be covered and look good, glue down the arms and outer edge of the black collar. 
Add this head.
Add the broom to one arm and a cross to the other. Cut out around the edge to remove any extra blue background. Add a looped hook to the top to hang it up.

St. Martin de Porres, pray for us!
God bless.
