St. Clare Doll and Monstrance Crafts

St. Clare's feast day is coming up on August 11. She had such a devotion to the blessed sacrament that her symbol is the monstrance, so I've included monstrance crafts and snacks as well. Of course, a monstrance craft would also be great for Corpus Christi, or a generic Catholic craft for any time! :-)

I love this little St. Clare doll made by Joyfilled Family!
No advanced skills necessary, and she links to the
embroidery pattern. So cute! 

Learn how to make an edible monstrance with the 
Catholic Craft Corner.

Here's a monstrance craft I found over on 
The Week of Graces. *Updated to Say- Popular opinion is that
these are made from clear plastic plates on an upside down plastic
wine glass with doilies behind them and decorated with stick on jewels.*

Here's a monstrance craft that I found on
God's Canvas, along with some other Catholic Crafts.

  1. It looks like the jeweled Monstrance is a clear plastic plate with either a plastic bowl or a margarita glass, doilies and sticky gems - Made one similar to this a couple years ago only anchored it to a flower pick and stuck it in a clear vase with marbles.

  2. Yes, but how do we attach the clear plastic plate to the upside down clear glass?
    Beautiful project!

  3. I think you need to cut off the base and just leave the stem of the upside down plastic wine glass and then glue the stem to the back center of the plate....

  4. You wouldn't even have to cut it off. With those plastic wine cups you get, the bottom is just detachable. You can get them at the dollar tree. I think it would be even cuter if you used gold doilies. :-)


Thanks for your comments! They're the icing on my cake ;-)
