The Marian Candle

Inspired by the blogger at Feast of the Immaculate Conception : Family in Feast and Feria as well as this thread,my daughter Izzy and I made our own candle for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception back in 2009. Two years later, it's still holding up!

I bought a simple white candle at Walmart. Izzy found a picture of Mary to color on line. Then we glued it to the candle and to set it- we melted wax and rolled our candle in the wax to give it a coating and protect it to the candle. I think it turned out pretty well for a first effort! We will light it tonight for dinner!

  1. How beautiful. And your daughter is adorable.

    Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
    our life, our sweetness and our hope.
    To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve;
    to thee do we send up our sighs,
    mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.

    Hope you had a great day on our Lady's day.
