Daisy Rosary

Today our Church Our Lady of Fátima, celebrates the day that the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared in Fátima, Portugal. Being Portuguese this is a huge day for our Catholic Portuguese families. It also happens to fall on Mother's day this year, making it extra special!

I guess word has spread that I'm quite crafty,  so some of the ladies from our parish asked if I could help them with some decor for the day. Here is the Rosary I made out of daisies. Not quite sure how it will be displayed yet, but will soon find out (I will unfortunately miss this as I am working, but I'll get to hear all about it when I get home) Hopefully, I will see some pictures!

It turned out to be a little bigger than I wanted, but I think it turned out beautifully!  I hot glued flowers that I pulled of their stems, to fishing line. For the cross and connector, I simply cut 6 layers with my Silhouette Cameo and glued them all together to give it the chip board feel. 

The daisies look so real!

God bless all moms on this very special day!

Thanks for visiting :)
