Sts. Louis & Zelie, pray for families especially for the unity and love of spouses!

For this project I got practice balls from the sports section in Walmart and spray painted them. They were very inexpensive and came in a package of 15 for $1.88. Unfortunatly you can only get them in the store.
And finally for the center and crucifix I used wooden shapes of a heart and cross that I painted to match the our father beads. I got these at Jo-Ann's.
For the corpus I just ordered a simple plastic one from Space age plastics corpus for the crucifix and I drew a picture of Our Lady of Grace on the heart. You could cut and paste a lovely image of Our lady from a Christmas card or magazine too.
We put it all together and tied knots around each bead so we could space them out and make the rosary large. Here is the finished Rosary when we used it for our Joyful Mysteries VBS program.
I am so sorry to disappoint but I had great during the project pictures until some sticky little fingers managed to erase a years worth of picture from my SD card! The only thing I would do different is not paint the practice balls or at least use a plastic approved spray paint to paint them. As usual, I was in a hurry to see what it would look like all finished so just used the spray paint I had on hand and...it wears off!Are you looking for a special rosary for the little ones in your life? Well we have a great selection of chids rosaries for sale in our shop!

I love that October is dedicated to the Rosary don't you? It's a beautiful devotion and I think a fantastic way we can draw our families together to meditate on the life of Christ as we sit at the school of Mary.
There is a kids Rosary Giveaway going on right now and ending October 7th!
We love to encourage little ones to pray the rosary so we have made some engaging and bright rosaries for them. The Children's Rosaries can be found over in our Etsy shop.
We also have for purchase a how to pray the Rosary coloring page set in our Coloring Pages & Printables section.
