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. Ambrose Craft {Liturgical Ornament}

St. Ambrose is called the "Honey-Tongued Doctor". He had a way with words that calmed many angry situations. He is a doctor of the church and because of both of these facts, we created an ornament which depicts a honey bee. The bee is a symbol of wisdom and they make honey!  St. Ambrose is also the patron saint of candle makers (workers of wax), Ya, we have lots of those these days! ;-) Anyway, he's also the patron saint of students, bee keepers and learning.  His feast day is Dec. 7th (new and traditional). Read his story HERE.
You will need: 
  • light blue
  • yellow felt
  • white felt
  • black sharpie marker
  • orange sharpie marker
  • brown sharpie marker
  • blue 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 shown above. 
  • Use black marker to add the strips and a black head to the bee. Use the brown marker to out-line the candle. Use the orange marker to add detail to the flame, and use a blue marker to out-line the bee's wings. 
  • Glue down the candle and the flame. Then add the bee's body. Finally add the bee's wings. After everything is glued down, cut off the extra blue background. Use a blue marker to add an edge to the background. 
  • Add a threaded loop to the top so it can be hung up. 
That's it!

St. Ambrose, pray for us!
