A Year of Creating Dangerously, Day 107: My Easter Cross


My Easter weekend project: Constructing a cross for Sunday morning. Though, truth be told, I’m not sure “constructing” is the right word as it calls to mind something grand and complicated. My cross was made from leftover nailing strips from the Palm Sunday craft the week before, a bunch of finishing nails, and foam board and poster board from my local dollar store; add in some staple gun work and a lot of glue stick and, presto, instant Easter prop!

I have never been the best at the three-dimensional kind of artworks. I usually exist in the safer two-dimensions, where you can create your own depth. However, even though I felt out of my depth (!), it all came together in the end. We ended up using the cross as we walked to different “stations” in the gym where we meet. Volunteers carried the cross to each stop. At the stations we read a portion of the Good Friday/Easter story from the Bible, illustrated with artwork done by our kids. Overall, a creative and properly lively time was had by all.

Here’s a few photos of the process and the finished product…
