May Altar for Mary

I wanted to share some ideas for making a May altar for your home. May is the month of Mary, so that's why May altars revolve around her :-)

I started by laying down some blue fabric I had because blue is Mary's color. Then I added a floral wreath leftover from our wedding, and a Mary statue. I just got this beautiful statue discounted at Ross for $3 because she's missing a hand. I'm going to make her a new hand from sculptey when I have the time, but I think she's fine for now.

Then I added a candelabra with blue candles, a blue rosary,
and my blue cross from the Dollar Tree. Again, blue for Mary.

We also added a rose and a pot of flowers we planted.
Flowers for our lady!

If you think you don't have a Mary statue, go raid your nativity set.

So in conclusion, here are some ideas for May altars:
  • Mary Statue
  • Lots of blue
  • Lots of flowers
  • Mary holy cards
  • Mary books
  • Rosaries
  • Candles
  • Crosses

Now here are some other great May altars I found!
