DIY - Pocket Shrine
Shrines have been part of the Catholic church for a millennia. Found in many churches, or Holy locations they are intended to be a place of quiet and focused Prayer. Often focused around a Saint or Devotional, shrines are places where we as Christians can learn from those who have come before us, to follow the example and find similar strength with in ourselves.
Pocket shrines have been found made from a variety of items including: felt, candy tins, even bullet casings from soldiers during WWII.
These pocket shrines are perfect when you're on the go, a small reminder that God is always with you, and an excellent way to focus yourself.
|This shrine was made with:||Crafting supplies|
Measure Box and cut paper to fit bottom of box (This step is optional, I wanted to create a Christmas theme for mine so I added Holiday paper.)
Attach Finger Rosary and Cross.
I really like using this Rosary Box because it has Hooks already it in.
I hooked the Medals and just used a tiny dab of Glue to tack them to the back of the box
I chose to make mine with a Christmas theme as a reminder to myself during the Holiday season to stop and focus on prayer.

Mix and Match and the possibilities are endless.
