Make Your Own Holy Water Font

Our little Flower group is going great. The girls like being together and love doing the crafts.

Every two weeks a different mom is in charge of leading the group and preparing the craft. These past two weeks it has been my turn to lead the meetings.

I like doing crafts as well but I have a hard time coming up with ideas on my own, thank goodness for the Internet.

As I was searching for the perfect craft I came across the blog Cottage Blessings.

I saw the post about the Holy Water Fonts, this was the craft I wanted to do.

I went to the craft store and bought the wooden plaques. In the framing section you can get hooks to put on the back of the plaques to hang them on the wall.

I bought plastic shot glasses at a store that sells items for parties. Then all you need to do is cut out pictures from magazines, cards or use holy card images.

The girls glued the pictures onto the plaque and then I hot glued the shot glass to the plaque. There you have it, a Holy water Font to hang in their room.

Hi,
I have been very interested in starting a Little Flowers group myself. I'm not sure how to start or who to contact. Any info you have would be greatly appreciated.

This is a beautiful craft.

They look beautiful...As a child I was hopeless at crafts and would bring home topsy turvy vases..stick figure paintings lol.

What a wonderful way to spend time, making something beautiful for God.:)

Peace to you:)
