80 degree weather and a birthday and an imploding cake and a huge painting that fell off the wall and a middle-of-the-night thunderstorm (read: toddler feet in my back as I'm valiantly attempting sleep) and oh,
a house that looks like a pink bomb exploded inside.
I'm actually thankful it's Monday. :)
I did this quick and easy Easter craft about a week ago, and I *love* how it turned out. It's my favorite part of the house right now. (And actually, it's the only clean surface in the house right now, too.) And did I mention that making it was free?
How to Make a Twig Easter Cross
1. Gather a load of dry twigs. I ransacked the woods behind our house.
2. Divide your twigs into two piles. You'll want to have a pile of shorter twigs and a pile of longer twigs. Just break off the ends so each pile is relatively the same length
3. Using floral wire, wire both piles together in the shape of a cross. It is helpful to have another pair of hands helping as you wrap the wire the first few times around. Don't ask me how I know this.
You could use anything really to hold the cross together... twine, hot glue, ribbons...I just had wire on hand.
4. Ta-DA!!! This can be easily embellished if you like, with a few flowers (real or fake) in the center.
You can see the faint tinge of green grass out the window...
hope for spring is outside,
but hope for life is in the cross.
He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” (1 Peter 2:24)
