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
Now here are some other great May altars I found!
By Sun and Candlelight took this pile of craft materials
and turned it into a beautiful May Altar! You have to see it!
Cottage Blessings has great directions for
crafting Miniature May Altars! So cute for kids!
Sweetness and Light decorated their mantel May Mantel for
the Mary. They even crafted this flower garland!
