{The Jellybean Prayer} Banner

Have you heard of the Jellybean Prayer?  It's an adorable way to share the message of Easter with children using something that they love - jellybeans!

Red is for the blood He gave,
Green is for the grass He made.
Yellow is for the sun so bright,
Orange is for the edge of night.
Black is for the sins we made,
White is for the grace He gave.
Purple is for His hour of sorrow,
Pink is for our new tomorrow.
A handful of jellybeans colorful and sweet,
Is a prayer, is a promise, is a special treat.
May the joy of Christ's resurrection
fill your heart and bless your life.

I came across the prayer on Pinterest and decided to make a simple Easter banner using the words from the poem.

I used this tutorial for fan-folded flowers and made one for each color that the prayer mentions.

I printed the words in Photoshop Elements, cut them out, and inked the edges with some stamping ink.

I glued the word circles to the flowers, and then it was simply a matter of stringing the flowers onto some twine and adding jellybeans to the ends, like this:

I was able to thread the twine through the jellybeans using a large needle.  Super easy - just a little bit sticky!

Now we have a colorful reminder of the wonderful message of Easter!

If you'd like to use my photoshop elements template for the word circles, you can download that document

I have one last Easter craft that I'll be sharing here tomorrow, so until then, have a wonderful day, and thank you for stopping by!
