Nun Doll Accessories

Cross Necklace

  • 1" cross charm, gold, silver or pewter*
  • Fine gold or silver chain
  • Clasp to match chain
  • One small jump ring
  • Jeweler pliers (needlenose pliers will work in a pinch)

Put jump ring into hole on top of charm and close with pliers.
Slide chain through jump ring. Attach clasp on both ends of chain.

*Purchase tiny crosses in the bead department or on the charm display rack at your local fabric or craft store. Directions for making your own cross are below.

Homemade Cross

  • Small piece gold textured vinyl
  • Jewelry eye pin
  • Glue (Fabri-tac, Grrrip, or tacky white glue work best)
  • Gold paint
  1. On the back of the vinyl draw a cross (1" high works well for most dolls) and cut out.

  2. Put glue on wrong side. Place the eye pin on the wrong side with the eye just above the top of the cross.

  3. Put cross with eye pin onto another piece of vinyl WST with the eye above the edge of the 2nd piece of vinyl. Cut out back of cross to match the front and cut off any excess pin so it doesn't extend below the bottom of the cross.

  4. If necessary, paint edges of vinyl with gold paint to match.

Key Chatelaine

  • Earring hoop (1") designed to slide beads on
  • 3 miniature key charms (1")
  • 5 jump rings (1 large - " diameter)
  • 1" heavy chain

Put jump ring on loop at top of each key. Slide keys onto earring hoop. Attach chain to hoop with jump ring. Put largest jump ring on other end of chain and slide belt cord through it to attach to waist of doll.


  • 53 - 2 mm pearls (a)
  • 6 - 2 mm black beads (b)
  • 75 - size 11 or smaller transparent seed beads (c)
  • 1" cross charm
  • 1 fancy metallic bead to match cross
  • Black Nymo beading thread
  • Beading needle
    1. Using doubled thread with tail knot at one end, put beads on in the following order:
      *(2c, 1a, 1c, 1a, 1c, 1a, 1c, 1a, 1c, 1a, 1c, 1a, 1c, 1a, 1c, 1a, 1c, 1a, 1c, 1a, 2c, 1b)

    2. Repeat from * 4 times, leaving off last 1b. Go through fancy metallic bead, 2c, 1b, 2c, 1a, 1c, 1a, 1c, 1a, 2c, 1b, 2c, and through the loop on the cross. Go back up through the beads in reverse order, through the fancy metallic bead, and tie a knot with the beginning tail knot. Go back through the first 10 pearls to hide end of thread. Rosary should look like picture when finished. This is also worn at the waist, so slide the cord belt through the rosary.
