Patrick's Saints: My Second Saint Doll Box

I just finished my second saint doll box.  I wanted to try a boy themed box, even though our little boy is years away from playing with peg saints.  It's not quite finished, I still need to paint the inside, pick one more saint for the back square of the box and glaze it, but here it is after two hours of work last night:

On the front I put the saint Patrick is named for:

Paul had requested Saint Joseph be on the box:

Saint George definitely took the longest to paint... by quite a bit:

And of course I had to add Saint Michael:

Here's another look at the box from further back:

And one last picture:

I'm leaning towards painting Saint Francis Xavier on the last side of the box.

I can't wait to see what it's going to look like when it's finished!  And I'm excited to get a few more of these boxes at Hobby Lobby because I really like how the shape of this one turned out!  It could hold an entire little army of saint dolls and would be perfect for little toddler hands.

  1. Geez - you're incredibly artistic. Seriously. <3 this box!


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
