St. Catherine was a very smart young girl who converted many people with her words of truth. After angering the emperor, she was beaten, imprisoned, and not allowed to eat for 11 days. During this time she converted the emperor wife and many of the solders (who later where martyred). Then she was to be tortured with a spiked wheel, but, at her touch, the wheel was miraculously destroyed. This also converted many watchers. After this she beheaded and legend says that angels carried her body to Mt. Sinai. Her feast day is November 25th (new and traditional). Read more about her HERE.
To make this ornament you will need:
Cut out the parts as shown above.
Glue the large circle on the pink background and add the small circle in the middle of the large circle. Add the spokes to the wheel. Glue them down and cut off the extra length, as needed.
It will look something like the wheel in the above picture.
Now create the lily. Above is a step-by-step image to show you how.
Now, glue down the palm, lily, and leaves. Cut out around the wheel and remove the extra pink background. Add the threaded loop to the top and hang it up!
St. Catherine of Alexandria, pray for us!
God bless you all with joy!
