Make an Easy Centerpiece for Lent

Updated: Apr 12, 2023

During the season of Lent, we are on a spiritual journey into the wilderness. We pray, examine ourselves, fast, and collect alms for those in need.

This simple DIY Lent Centerpiece is a beautiful reminder of the season we are in. The sticks arranged in jars represent the wilderness and the purple candles represent penitence and introspection.

This is an easy craft to make with your children plus you get to make use of your leftover purple Advent candles! As you make it, it’s a great teaching opportunity to go over what everything represents and to talk about what it means to walk through Lent. It will also serve as a visual reminder every time you sit down to meals of Lent.
