“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross.” Hebrews 12:2
As Christians we should always keep our eyes on Jesus, and this cross could be that daily reminder to keep Him first in everything. Make one to keep and another to share with someone else who may also need reminding.
I love this cross and it is quick and easy to make. We had this up a couple of years ago on Parking Space Faith but we thought we would resurrect the idea for Easter. (Yes pun intended!)
First choose your canvas. These pictures are 20x16, but pick a size to fit your space. Then choose a paint color and burlap or twine. The combinations are endless so make yours as unique and individual as you are. You may use a brush or a sponge on a stick like we did. After you are finished painting the front and all 4 edges, let it dry completely before adding the cross.
Now roll out enough burlap or twine to cover the length (top to bottom) of the canvas. Pull the material tightly before attaching both ends with hot glue or a staple gun. Next cut the horizontal (side to side) piece about 6-8 inches longer than you need to allow room for the knot. Tie your knot, and then attach each side to the back. Finally, to make your cross even more meaningful, add a favorite verse or phrase with a paint pen or a metallic marker. You have just created the perfect Easter gift … Lead Me to the Cross.
