  1. How fun!! I will try to remember this for next year. We always have festivities on the eve of St. Nicholas. That would be a fun time to do this with everyone at Church. “For all ages!” Thank you for sharing.

    1. I think it would be fun to have friends over during Advent, telling them to bring a small high resolution print of their favorite saint. Then we could have tea and make the ornaments for a our trees. I hope you give it a try.

  2. And then years later, when they are all grownup, they will still be taking them out of the Christmas box and holding them in their hands for just a minute because they will be a piece of childhood and memory. What a great project!

  3. Love this! We cut mini icons from the Ancient Faith catalog and made ornaments, too. I wish I’d used glitter. Maybe ill get some!!

    1. Great idea to cut out little images from the catalog. Definitely, use glitter, if you can. The kids love it and the glitter makes the ornaments pop and glisten! Thanks for coming by and commenting.

  4. Ancient Faith Icon calendars can be great for this – the pages are too big for an ornament, but the back cover has a miniature of each of the 12 icons included in the calendar, just the right size for an ornament.
