This Milagro Decoration Kit was inspired by a display of Milagros from around the world and on view at the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
When the Spanish came to the New World, they brought with them the Milagro tradition. Translated from Spanish to English, the word Milagro means miracle. These “charms” can be made of silver, tin or gold, bone, wood, or wax; and come in many shapes and sizes: from hearts, hands, and eyes, to houses, and animals. Milagros can be offered for healing or in gratitude for a prayer answered. Equally they are carried or given for protection and good luck.
The Milagro Decorations Kit is made of plywood and comes unpainted. Enjoy it as, or paint your very own designs and patterns. Instructions included, but please note, for best results, we recommend you remove the Milagros out of the kit and paint them before assembling.
String them together to make a wall hanging, hang them on a tree, or give them as Valentine's Day gifts.
Approximate dimensions for the hand Milagro: 7".
Paint and other decorating materials are not included. Recommended for ages 7+.
