St. Elizabeth of Hungry, was married to King Ludwig and spent her short life giving and caring for the poor and sick. Elizabeth is best known for the miracle of the roses: While she was taking bread to the poor in secret, she met her husband Ludwig who was with a hunting party. She was accused of steeling treasure from the castle and she was asked to reveal what she held in her apron. She opened her apron to reveal a vision of white and red roses. This proved to Ludwig that God\’s protecting hand was at work. Read more about her HERE.
Her feast day is November 17 in the New Calendar and November 19th in the Traditional Calendar.
To make her ornament you will need:
Cut out the shapes like those above. The red and white wavy line of felt will be the roses. Use the brown marker to make detail on the tan bread.
Glue the bread on to the blue background and add the leaves. Roll the strips of white and red into rose shapes. Cut off any extra length which make the roses too large.
Add a large drop of glue to the leaf-area and add the rolled rose. Press the bottom of the rose into the glue. If you are not using hot glue you may need to hold it longer or use a clothespin to press it down for a half hour or so.
Now cut off the extra blue background and add the looped hanger to the top.
Hang it up wherever you like!
St. Elizabeth of Hungry, pray for us.
May God bless you all with joy!
