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.
My sister came over and I asked her the same thing, she thought it looked a little over the top. 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,
