Toothpick Holder Prayer Reminder

Toothpick Holder Prayer Reminder

Natalie L., a 15-year-old volunteer from Dover, Delaware, recently visited The Voice of the Martyrs with other visiting volunteers. Natalie and other volunteers made toothpick prayer reminders and shared the assembly instructions with VOM.

Main Materials

  • Straight-sided plastic pill bottle or spice bottle. Spice bottles with flip tops or holes in the top are especially good.
  • Small photo of persecuted Christians from VOM publications or printed from this site.
  • Craft glue or clear contact paper.


  • Cut a photo to fit around the bottle. To make it thicker, you may want to glue the photo to colored paper before attaching it to the bottle.
  • Glue the photo to the bottle.
  • Cover with craft glue or contact paper.
  • Decorate the bottle with yarn or ribbon if desired.
  • Fill with toothpicks and shake out as needed. (If the bottle has no holes in the top, poke a hole in the top, or just open the bottle and shake out a toothpick.)
  • Keep the bottle on the table where you eat as a mealtime prayer reminder.
