A Pentecost Table Craft


I wanted to do something simple but pretty and meaningful for my Pentecost Centerpiece and this is what I came up with.

I took a plain glass bowl and filled it with water and floating candles. I got all of it from Pat Catan's for under $12.

Then I surrounded the bowl with a holy card for each of the apostles and Mary. And let me tell ya- some of those apostles aren't easy to find, particularly St. Bartholomew, St. Simon and Saint James the Lesser. Those I found on the internet and printed them out in color. Izzy reinforced them for me with that craft foam. Then we put them around the bowl, and lit the candles.


The idea is that the floating candles are like the tongues of fire that hung over the apostles head at Pentecost. Izzy also made me a dove to hang from the chandalier over the bowl tomorrow. I'll have the full effect then, but for a test run, this is what it looked like!
