Decorating with Wooden French Rosaries

They're lovely wooden French rosaries.

It, (they), inspired me with a little idea of my own.

While you can find out how to make rosaries via google, I'm not Catholic.

I decided to make something similar, but not with the exact design of a rosary.

A friend from church made me the chunky wooden cross.

Then I bought a container of assorted large wooden beads.

It was a quick, easy, simple and enjoyable project.

It's draped over my little drawer cubby in my home office, (aka Elizabeth's sanctuary).

Something about it makes me smile every time I see it.

Since it's not a rosary, I just call it my Jesus beads.

I love the chunky, warm, wood tones of the beads and the reminder of what Christ did for me on the cross here in the room where I have my devotions, blog, write and create.

  1. Love your Jesus beads. I saw Laurie's at Heaven's walk. What a great reminder of what Jesus did for us.

  2. I'm not Catholic, either, but I fell in love with rosaries while living in Italy. So pretty.

  3. Perfect! Love the visual reminder of the wonderful gift of Love.
