It should come as no surprise to those of you that have been reading this blog even a little that I changed my mantel décor yet again:). It became very striking to me as I was searching Pinterest for Easter decorating and mantel ideas for inspiration that very few pictures of Easter decorating related to the miracle of Easter.
While my family enjoys regular Easter traditions of decorating and hiding eggs and eating ham and deviled eggs it is really important to us that my kids know why we celebrate Easter, because of Jesus. So today, I am sharing my Easter mantel and a simple cross craft:).
My girlfriend had shared some simple crosses that her son made and I was inspired to make some with my youngest. We were able to make these using supplies we had at home. Sticks, some kitchen twine and modeling clay.
It was Tucker’s job to break the sticks while I wrapped the string around the sticks. He helped me place them in the modeling clay:).
We placed them on our living room mantel
I placed the 3 simple stick crosses we made next to a “He is Risen” sign I made with a sharpie and an MDF board.
To add color to my Easter mantel I brought in a few branches from our pear and cherry trees in our yard. Thank goodness for Spring flowers:).
I laid a flower pot on it’s side with a bird’s nest inside to symbolize the empty tomb that Jesus rose from.
“He is not here; he has risen, just as he said” Matthew 28:6
