Milagro Decorations Craft Kit
This Milagro Decoration Kit comes was inspired by a display of Milagros from around
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.
