These are just beautiful! So simple, so lovely. I have a cross collection, so this project really speaks to me. Thank you for sharing it!
Happy Easter to you. As my friend used to say, "Thank God for Jesus!"
These are so simple and sweet and meaningful! I have been using John 3:16 on all my Easter messages this year.

The best and most inspiring idea for little ones and older ones. I am going to copy this idea. Thank you so much!
Thank you SO much, dear Lorraine.
After looking at tons of eggs and bunnies in Blogland it is so refreshing to come to your blog and be presented by the simple and beautiful truth of Easter.
Many blessings to you and your beautiful family my friend,
Dear Lillie says

FABBY'S LIVING says
I love your cross and the deep meaning. Our dear Lord Jesus Christ, who gave His life for us is what He prefers, simplicity and humility. Thank you for sharing. I am going this Holy Friday to a Catholic retreat from 8am to 6pm with friends and my mother who will also attend.
HAPPY EASTER and many blessings for you and yours.

What a beautiful symbol of the Lord's love toward us. And the wooden pieces bring a wonderful connection to the Maker of nature. Thank you for sharing with us.
Jillian's Bella Rosa Antiques says
Great idea! We'll have to make one for our little Bebe and put it in her basket. We live in the woods so it should be easy to find the sticks!
Melissa Bo says
I love this idea. Its so simple but so meaningful.
Thank you so much for sharing!
Mama Jodi says
It's so simple and sweet. I love it.
Nellie's Cozy place says
What a simple and lovely reminder for us all. Very neat idea, and bet your grandchildren really enjoyed making them. Love how you had it draped over the eggs and both with the verses
attached. A good way to keep Christ at the center of His celebration!
Just 6 more days and He will be Risen, Risen Indeed!
Lorraine-What a beautiful thing for little hands to hold. Is the base some clay that you formed (bottom picture)? xo Diana
Farmer's Wyfe says
How beautiful!! I think I'll make those with my kids this week!
This is one of those ideas I'm going to save in my file for a time when we have the children for Easter – tho' I can see from your post that it is appropriate for any holiday, to bring us back to the reason for the celebration.
Maggie Ann says
Beautiful tutorial! And thank you for visiting me blog and for the encouragement, but please please tell me what "sharing on T on TT" means. I have no clue. 🙁
Good morning! This is a wonderful idea! Thanks for putting it up. Have a lovely day….HUGS
What a simple but wonderful idea! My little granddaughter is learning about the cross this year.
Ms. Redo says
Love the idea you had to make a cross from twigs, and the verse with it – I believe I will make them for my teens for Easter – thanks for sharing! Hugs ~ Mary
That is a sweet ides, I love it and plan to make some this week, one to keep and the rest to share. Thanks you for sharing this idea!
This is a wonderful idea. Thanks for sharing.
Such a special way to share with little ones…and big ones too!
Have a joy-filled week Lorraine!
This is precious!! What a beautiful tribute to Jesus.
I love this. What a great idea to teach children too. Your photos are always so beautiful.
Blessings and love,
Barbara F. says
This us a lovely thing to do. I was touched by this, and I am going to work on a cross for myself this week. xo
Such a heartfelt idea! So beautiful and appropriate.
Such a wonderful blessing to open your page and view this. Very humbling. I look forward to making my personal journey to the foot of the cross this week.
