DIY Extra Large Rosary Made from Silk Daisies | Decoration Piece

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 chipboard feel.
