Hi everyone, This post is a “test” to see what all of you want and are desiring — Back in July Elizabeth and I started creating these Liturgical ornaments and sharing our creations with you so you, too, could make them if you wanted. Well, I’ve gotten a number of people asking if I have patterns for the ornaments. I’m sorry to say: no, I don’t. We free-hand all of our parts and I just take a picture of them before we glue them together. But I thought long and hard about the requests for patterns, and after a long discussion with my husband, I thought I’d run a test post on this topic to see if this idea is worth the time it will take to create.
Please understand that it will take time to create patterns for the ornaments and sadly I don’t have a lot to free time. Homeschooling 9 kids is a full-time job as many of you know! But I want to help all of you if I can, so I’m offering a set of patterns to download, but I’m planning to charge a small fee for the patterns because if I take the time to create them I’ll need to order out for dinner, pay a babysitter, etc. I hope you all understand.
Today’s “test” set is Our Lady of Guadalupe and St. Juan Diego.
The set includes patterns to create a felt ornament for each. It also has the instructions on how to assemble the felt ornaments.
Just cut out the pattern, pin it onto the correct color felt and cut them out! That’s nice and easy for you!
This printable set also includes 4 printable paper ornaments.
- Our Lady of Guadalupe in color
- Our Lady of Guadalupe in black and white (for coloring)
- St Juan Diego in color
- St. Juan Diego in black and white (for coloring)
Choose the set in full color or the black and white set, which the kids can paint or color.Here is a peek at the full download:
You are free to make as many copies as you need for your class or family.
Fantastic! Thank you for thinking of doing this, with all the other things you have going. These are a great way to mark the Saints' feast days throughout the year in a fairly simple way. To be honest, not being super good at art here, the felt ornaments were a bit intimidating – but the patterns make it so much easier! And having the option of being able to go really simple – just print it out – makes it something that is even more likely to be utilized, at least in my house! 🙂
Very cute! Love it. 🙂
WOW Jennifer! First thank you for all you do to share our beautiful faith with all your amazing creativity! I so appreciate you taking the time to do this! You know I'm a big fan of your creations (at least I hope you know that 🙂 ) and I love these felt gems! I bought the download to hopefully try out the felt ornaments. You really can't make it any easier than you already have with these great patterns you have worked so hard on. (Well, unless you go supply shopping and make the ornaments for me! LOL! 🙂 ) I like both the paper and felt ornament patterns and I will try out both with my kids! I hope to do the ornaments sometime before next December! LOL! 🙂
Jennifer,these patterns are awesome! Thank you so much for these. My kids love to do these for feast days! It makes craft time so much easier with a pattern. God Bless
Thank you so much for your input, everyone!! I've gotten some very good responses via email, as well. I'll make a few more sets to see if the interest continues. Thanks again! God Bless.
