Corded Rosaries

We have been making corded rosaries in class.  Currently, the 5th and 6th grade have supplied the VBS with Rosaries for this summer and now we are working on some to send to the missions.  Just the 6th grade has made over 300, and I am buying about 6 rolls of  #18 nylon thread every two weeks at Hobby Lobby.   If you can I would be appreciative of donations of the string.   I am sure we could probably buy it online as well.



Current Rosary Count:  Over 400.  I'm still finishing last weeks!


We are going to write a how-to blog about this and we looked at several websites on how to make little rosary bags to get ideas for formatting.  This is a project that we will continue after spring break.  If the students are looking for ideas these are the ones I showed them.
