Tabernacle Model


In this video, I show you how to make a Tabernacle model. You will need the following supplies:

  • a shoebox
  • pieces of cloth
  • wooden dowels
  • self-hardening modeling clay
  • a small wooden box
  • hot glue
  • gold spray paint
  • sand
  • white school glue
  • pictures or drawings of angels
  • small gold rings to slide dowels into
  • small wooden bowls (can be made from clay)

I give you directions on how to put it together in the video. I also explain why the Tabernacle is significant, and the modern equivalent of the Tabernacle today.

  1. That’s a great project! I’m starting to help out at Sunday School at our church and I love this idea–I also love arts and crafts!

    Good project, very detailed so easy to follow. Love that you gave ideas for things the children can do. For the angels, if you find fabric with angels on it, you can fuse them to the curtains if you don’t want to use glue. This is a great way to teach the children about the Tabernacle.

      If I could have found fabric with angels on it already, it would have cut down on the amount of time I spent sewing it! Of course, fabric glue works just fine, too.
