Stations of the Cross Candle Set

The twins made these purple candles last year with our Youth Group. I was so proud of the results, and then I forgot to post a picture during Lent. The idea came from Alison--two years ago, and she graciously shared her antique engravings of the 14 Stations so that we could photocopy them (other instructions here). Just the right size for baby food jars.

Thanks to Cynthia for the hefty supply, so each teen could have a set of 14 and make them look like stained glass. For our family's prayer time, we light them all to begin--then blow out each one as we read the station. It's even more significant when done at night time.
