This is a fun and easy craft project for all ages! It makes a nice addition to any altar, room, shelf, or wall.
In this simple activity, you’ll create a decoration of St. Joseph on a block of wood. I felt that wood seemed like a perfect spot to put a picture of St. Joseph since he was/is a carpenter!
It is easy enough for kids in 1st grade but still nice enough for teens and adults.
Since our house is under construction we have A LOT of old boards lying around, but if you can’t find an old board you could buy a new board from your local lumber store, most lumber stores will also cut it for you, too. ~OR~ Many craft stores sell wood plaques that you could use.
You will need:
- a piece of wood
- picture of St. Joseph
- Mod Podge**
- sandpaper (fine grit)
- gray and brown craft paint and water (if you want to “age” a new piece of wood) OR stain
|Aging/preparing a new piece of wood:
If you are using a piece of wood that is new and want it to look older here’s how…
After the wood has been sanded, mix a little bit of gray and some brown acrylic-craft paint together until you get a nice color. Add some water and mix it until it’s very thin. Now cover the wood and let it dry. Sanding it lightly again may help, too.
