Crafting a Crown Fit for a Queen

by | Oct 30, 2022 | All Saints Day, Costumes, Crafts, Marian | 9 comments

We were trying to come up with a crown for one of our daughter’s costumes this year… I considered this one over at Amazon but, while I was debating due to the cost, it went out of stock. Decision made! She was on her own to come up with something and I was absolutely amazed at her creativity and results. 

Here is what she used: 
Cardboard (she used the box from the Sonicare toothbrushes I had just purchased)
Spray Bottle of Water
Old Ping Pong Ball
Mini Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
Fleur de Lis Silicone Mold
4 Yards of 4mm Pearl Trim 
Brown Paint
Gold Paint
This YouTube Video was her inspiration!


O God, who made the Mother of your Son to be our Mother and our Queen, graciously grant that, sustained by her intercession, we may attain in the heavenly Kingdom the glory promised to your children.

Mary, Queen of Heaven, pray for us!

    Oh My!!!! This crown is amazing! Your daughter is very creative with an artistic gift. It is such fun to create your own costume from items around the home and with ideas from inside your mind. She did a wonderful job on her crown. ~Debbie

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
