Making Stick Crosses – Day 5 of Resurrection Crafts

Posted on

Resurrection Garden with CrossesThis is the fifth day of my 12 Days of Resurrection Crafts series.

Day five from the Resurrection Eggs Easter craft comes from Matthew 27:2, and is represented by rope.

For this craft, we tied the stick crosses together for our Empty Tomb Garden.

We found the sticks outside. found our sticks outsideWe used beading twine (similar to this: )to tie the sticks into crosses. beading twine and sticks

I first broke the sticks into smaller pieces to make the cross. broken sticks

My oldest child understood how to hold the sticks together so that we could tie them, but the 4-year old and 3-year old did not know how to do this.  Thankfully, I was able to tie them together myself.
