All Saints Props - Making a Monstrance

Cecilia chose to dress up as St. Clare for All Saints Day, so I came up with this idea to make a monstrance. At first I thought I'd just make a one-dimensional one, but then I thought it'd be fun to have one that could stand up by itself. So here's what we did:

I stapled two paper plates together and left part of it open. I slipped the opening over a toilet paper tube and secured it with masking tape. Then I taped the other end of the tube to the bottom of a styrofoam bowl.

We covered the whole thing with aluminum foil. Then we cut a circle out of white cardstock and Cecilia drew a cross on it to make a host.

Last, she stuck sequins on it. An easy 3-D monstrance!
