Y’all – this is the sweetest little dollar store craft to serve as a faithful reminder or inspiring gift. Most of us have heard of Mustard Seed faith and now you can download a free printable to make a cute little encouraging craft.
When I saw these little glass craft jars at the 99 Cent Only Store for $1 I instantly knew I wanted to make some Mustard Seed faith reminders. I have a necklace that a friend gave me with a mustard seed in a small glass jar and I love the simplicity and meaning it holds. This craft is the same! Plus it’s an inexpensive craft anyone can do. I’m even going to give you the scripture printable for free so you can create your very own!
I will give you the details of how to make these little faith bottles, but first I want to share what happened as I made them! I finished putting a few bottles together and was taking one to display in my house when I dropped it on the hard tile floor. Of course the glass shattered and I quickly went to sweeping up the mess. As I brushed the shards of glass into the dustpan I noticed the mustard seed was no where to be found. Scanning the ground and sliding the broom under the fridge, no mustard seed appeared. Isn’t that just like our faith. So often it seems to disappear when life shatters. When the going gets tough, or perhaps when things are going really well, that tiny little seed of faith rolls out of sight. Maybe we doubt that God really cares or that He is big enough to handle the mess at hand. I know I’m guilty of taking the wheel when things are going good and leaving my seed of faith in the dust, working in my own strength, will and ways. But the little seed is never gone. It didn’t just evaporate or spontaneously combust on my kitchen floor. It simply rolled out of sight for a while.
Eventually it will be vacuumed up or the dog will scavenge it off the floor, but it’s not gone, just hidden for a while. Maybe you need to dust under your fridge friend and pull out that tiny seed of faith and put it to work, pray for it to grow. I have just the place for you to rekindle the spark of faith in your heart! Read the scripture verses on the free printable and see how they intertwine, look the scriptures up in your Bible and read the context around them. NOTHING will get you back in line, eye to eye with God more than reading His word. Let it encourage you like nothing else can. Then create this simple mustard seed craft and place it somewhere you see it often. Next make some for friends or family that could use some faith fire, mail it to them or give it over a coffee date. You never really know what the little seeds you plant can do! Now here are some tips for you to make one:
How to make a mustard seed faith bottle:
If you aren’t lucky enough to have a great dollar store nearby you can order small glass craft jars here. (affiliate link) You can find them in a few different sizes, the prints I made will fit in most mini jars.
Download and print the free sheet of mustard seed and mustard seed inspired verses then cut them up. I used a pencil to gently wrap the paper around so it softly curved and slipped into the bottle easily. Add one mustard seed and close. You might want to seal the bottle with a clear adhesive like Gorilla Glue clear. Finish it off with a cute ribbon or twine. You can also use jewelry wire to wrap around and make a necklace or hanging loop like the picture. Perfect for someone going through cancer treatments, a difficult time or even as a reminder where the good gifts come from! I’d be so grateful if you’d take a minute to Pin this on Pinterest so others can find and enjoy it too.
