Easter Craft ~ Branch Cross



I’m all about free craft projects!  I have been wanting to make some crosses for Easter decorations around my house.  I have tons of branches in my backyard so I went outside with some cutters and gathered up some.


This project was so easy and fast that by the time I was done I had seven!  I think I’ll give a couple away as gifts.  Since I’m not hosting Easter at my house, maybe I bring one for a hostess gift.  I made a couple big ones to put in my urns on my front porch and some little ones to put in the house.  The big ones measured about 2.5 Ft x 15 inches and the littles ones varied in sizes but were around 12 inches x 6 inches.


After I gathered up some branches and cut them to size I just tied some jute around them and tied it off with a knot in the back.  It was as simple as that.  You can get jute at craft supply stores or at your local hardware store.  I already had some lying around so I used what I had.

I got an idea to add a little fabric to my cross and I’m still not sure if I love the look.  I asked Heidi what she thought and she said her hubby thought it looked like T.P.  lol!  After he said that I thought  ya, now that you say that it kind of does!  Haha, oh well I just decided to live on the edge and just go with it!  It’s a good reminder to me why we celebrate Easter.

Actually her exact words were “It’s a little crazy!” My sister usually thinks the things I do are a little crazy so I was kind of expecting that.  I really do appreciate their honest opinion.  What do you guys think, yes or no to the fabric?

Enjoy your Easter,
