To make our cross we used a few old wood pieces we had laying around our house. With our house under constant remodel, finding wood is easy! For those of you who are luck enough to have a completed house, you could buy some thin lattice strips or other pieces of wood at your local lumber store. (But not Home Depot, since they give money to the homosexual agenda!) My "Handy-Hubby" used two small screws to attach ours together, but if you don't have a "handy-significant-other" string wrapped in a criss-cross pattern at the center should work, if tied tight!
Our Lenten Cross looks like this all Lent until Palm Sunday.
I used a purple robe from our nativity costumes to drape over the cross, and I made a paper Crown of Thorns.
For the instructions to make a paper crown of thorns click here.
Again I used a robe from our nativity costumes(I love to recycle!)
The palm is paper. Click here for instruction on cutting a palm.
I used glitter foam to make a blue bag with silver coins.
I also added a black string to the bag.
Using glitter foam I made a chalice and host.
I know this is not what Jesus would have had, but I wanted my kids to realize that Holy Thursday was the first Mass.
I added a large black scarf, three red drops and a red slit (cut from red glitter foam) and I added the paper crown of thorns.
Here I used another robe, and a bunch of fake lilies

Okay, That's a lot of pictures!!
Hope that explain it all!
Have a meaningful Passion Sunday and Holy Week, and a wonderful Easter!
