Many Christians celebrate Lent. Lent starts on Ash Wednesday which is about forty days before Easter Sunday and is a time for reflection.
An important day during this time is Palm Sunday. It was when Jesus came to Jerusalem for the Passover. The Friday before Easter is the day that Jesus was crucified. It is called Good Friday.
For this project you will need;
Color or paint your cross brown along with the cotton balls. If you wanted your cross a different color you could choose your favorite. It doesn’t need to be brown. We used brown to represent wood.
Punch a hole in the top with a hole punch. Cut a small piece of pipe cleaner. Attach it to the hole to make a hanger.
(A man named Simon of Cyrene was seized and forced to carry the cross for Jesus. Read Luke 23:26).
A flower on the cross looks pretty. It also reminds us that Jesus rose again.
With tacky glue, glue the stem onto the cotton balls.
You can make this project easier. Leave the rose off or use an artificial flower from the store. You can find inexpensive plastic flowers at your local dollar store.
Decorate your wall with this Easter project.
Easter cross crafts can remind us of the Christian significance of the holiday.
