About 30 to 45 minutes to make the first rosary.
From my experience of teaching how to make the rosaries in the schools, children need to be at least 11 or 12 years old to make a acceptable rosary.
Remember it is for the military and that is why it needs to be well done. Younger children could draw pictures of the soldiers with the rosaries – the troops love them.
For a single rosary 53 inches of cord is required. A 1000 feet or 12,000 inches of cord makes 226 rosaries. A 1000 beads makes 16 rosaries – 59 beads for each rosary. The cost to make and send a rosary with the pamphlets is approximately one dollar.

I will include them in my shipments to the chaplains. We have many chaplains from all over the world, especially the war torn areas, who want to receive these combat rosaries.
Note: Please do not cut or burn rosaries sent to St. Mary’s coordinator in order that they may be checked. The reason for this is if there is a mistake it can be corrected but once it is cut and burned it cannot be fixed.
Sometimes an Our Father is forgotten or the rosary is too tight at the end of the decade or even too loose. If rosaries are too tight they are not usable. So please leave the space of one bead in each decade so as to be able to count beads as one is praying. Remember how precious they are to the brave men and women in harms’ way who will be receiving them. Thank you for your efforts. Our Lady will be very pleased.
