This Joseph’s Coat of Many Colors Craft can be an annual reminder of how God uses evil for good when you decorate your Christmas Tree! If you make Jessee Tree ornaments every year, you might like to use the ornaments from the Felting Through the Bible series.
But be forewarned, you might just get hooked on Felting Through the Bible! Because it’s fun and you can’t do just one. Especially if you have a touch of OCD. You’re going to want the whole collection!
NOTE: This is the fifth project in the Felting Through the Bible Series.
If you missed the introduction, make sure you go back and check that out because we went through materials and techniques in the introductory video there.
I invite you to join me on a journey crafting our way through popular Bible stories. Let’s get started!
Joseph’s Coat of Many Colors Craft
This is a cute project to do with your tweens or teens to represent how God makes good from what was meant as evil.
Our verses for this project are:
“ You meant to hurt me. But God turned your evil into good. It was to save the lives of many people. And it is being done.” – Genesis 50:20 (ICB)
“Remember that I commanded you to be strong and brave. So don’t be afraid. The Lord your God will be with you everywhere you go.” -Joshua 1:9 (ICB)
Discussion could include how God uses the faithful to accomplish great things and how God provides for his people. You could also discuss forgiveness and how God doesn’t want us to be angry or afraid.
