Stations of the Cross Candles

We Rose just made our Stations of the Cross candle set.  She made three sets to be exact.  We plan to keep one set and give two sets away to Godparents on First Friday.

I initially saw this idea on Just Another Day In Paradise.  We printed the same traditional black & white images that were used in her tutorial.

I decided to follow Lisa Sweet's prompting and only create 12 candles since the 12th station is when Jesus dies on the cross.
....we only have 12 candles, because Jesus dies in the 12th station and the Light goes out of the world. Dad does the last 2 stations with a flashlight and the rest of us in the dark. ~ Lisa Sweet comment on Catholic Icing

I found the votive candles in a set of 12 at Wal-Mart for $6. 

Rose used Mod Podge to adhere the printed stations to the glass votive.  She applied a couple of layers over the image to properly seal it to the votive candle.

We are all looking forward to using these candles on First Friday for Stations of the Cross in our home.


  1. I also loved Lisa's suggestion! Great job with the stations! I said we were going to make these this year but... it hasn't happened yet. We'll see! ;-)

  2. These are great! My kids will be making these for sure.

  3. The Stations Project is really neat. I love hearing the creative ways families celebrate the seasons and involve the kids. No matter where life leads your kids, they will never forget their formative years praying as a family.

  4. I love your idea of giving them as gifts to Godparents. Very thoughtful!

  5. What a great idea! I think we will definitely do this one!
