It should come as no surprise to those of you that have been reading this blog even a little that I changed my Spring fireplace mantel décor yet again. 

It became very striking to me as I was searching Pinterest for Easter decorating & Easter fireplace mantel decorating ideas for inspiration that very few pictures of Easter decorating related to the true miracle story 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 Decor and a simple & easy DIY cross craft.

To celebrate the miracle of Easter we made a simple craft craftusing supplies we already had on hand!

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. 

Supplies Needed for a DIY Cross Craft

  • Thin Sticks in Various Lengths & Sizes
  • Kitchen Twine
  • Modeling Clay (we used DAS however, even Playdoh would work)

Instructions for How to Make a DIY Cross Craft to Decorate an Easter Mantel

Gather your Supplies, first the sticks in various lengths & sizes.

It was my youngest son, Tucker’s job to break the sticks while I wrapped the string around the sticks. 

Wrap the kitchen twine & make a knot around 2 sticks connected perpendicularly to create a cross until you have 3 crosses of various heights.

Gather a handful of modeling clay & place each cross in the modeling clay.

Let the crosses sit a few hours until dry.

To add color to my Easter mantel decor I brought in a few branches from our pear and cherry trees in our yard. 

Thank goodness for Spring flowers!

Empty Tomb as Easter Mantel Decor

I laid a flower pot on it’s side with a bird’s nest inside to symbolize the empty tomb that Jesus rose from.
