Elijah’s Altar Door Hanger

This fun door hanger goes with the story of Elijah and the Prophets of Baal found in 1 Kings 18 where God proved that He is the one true God.

PREPARE:

  • Door hanger: Print the door hanger (below) onto white cardstock paper then cut it out along the outer edge and the dotted lines
  • Altar: Tear  brown construction into 1″ x 6″ strips
  • Flames: Cut orange and yellow tissue paper  into 2″ squares, about 4 to 5 of each
  • Bible/lesson point: Print or write the Bible/lesson point onto a 1″ x 2-5/8″ address label or paper

PROVIDE:

  • Glue
  • Blue markers

PRODUCE:

  • Adhere the Bible point just under the circle opening of the the door hanger
  • Tear brown construction paper strips into smaller pieces then glue them near the bottom of the door hanger to create Elijah’s altar
  • Scrunch the orange and yellow tissue squares then create the fire by gluing them in a clump on top of the altar
  • Using a blue marker, draw dots all over the door hanger to represent rain

  • Select “Fill Page”, “Actual Size”, or make sure Scale is set to 100%
  • “Borderless Printing” should be ON, or make sure there are no margins set
  • Select “Auto Portrait/Landscape” or make sure the image is not sideways on the page
