I love saint medals! I kind of have a collection. Funny thing is, I always wear the same medal around my neck -24-7. My mother gave it to me when I was about 8 and I’ve worn it since. The rest of my medals are in a box packed away. But I decided it’s time to make use of some of them, and I thought I’d share a few of my ideas with all of you. Perhaps something will inspire you.
1. Use Medals as Zipper Pulls
They could be used on purses, coats or jacket zippers.
2. Ceiling Fan Pulls
A few months ago one of our ceiling fan pulls was accidentally hit. It swing up and hit the light fixture breaking the glass. So I removed all the heavy pulls that came with the fans and replaced them with light-weight saint medals. -No more broken light fixtures!!
3. Curtain Tie backs
Use them to decorate your curtain tie backs.
4. Decorate Candles
I found this idea on Pinterest. -from DustyLu
And this is from Tiffany at Family at the Foot of the Cross
5. Use them to decorate gifts and cards
6. Decorate Baskets
7. Hang them on your key chain
8. Hang them on the ring that keeps your kids flash cards together
9. Hang them on spiral ring notebooks
10. Use them to create a bookmark
(with two medals and a ribbon)
These are all great ways to have a constant reminder of God and the way we should live. The images of the saints can speak of their story even when we are just doing our daily duties.
Do you have another idea on other ways to use and decorate with saint medals?
