Religious Easter Wreath with lilies and a jute cross

 

Easter will soon be here and if you are like us, you love sharing the true meaning of Easter.  Sometimes a Christian Easter Wreath is hard to find in the stores.  So we decided to make it ourselves using all the gorgeous flowers that remind us of spring and a new beginning.

And this jute wrapped cross is easy to make and reminds us of the miracle of Easter.  Also we kept the wreath simple and elegant by using a 14″ steel ring from Hobby Lobby.   And we are glad we did, because I love the clean look of this Easter wreath with a cross and spring flowers.

How to make a Easter Wreath with Cross:

 

hot glue gun, jute, wooden cross and scissors

 

Start you wreath by making the cross.  And you will need the cross, jute, hot glue and gun plus scissors. 

 

Jute wrapping on wooden cross

 

First you need to remove the jute hanger that comes with the cross.  Then starting at the top front facing part of the cross, add a strip of hot glue.  Place the jute string on top of glue and begin wrapping the cross. Every couple wraps, add hot glue to the wood and continue wrapping until the cross is completely covered.

 

Adding the jute to the Top of the jute wrapped Cross

 

Cut pieces of the jute string to cover the top edges of the cross . Hot glue these to cover the bare wood that was left showing after you wrapped your cross. 

 

Hot glue cross to wreath and gauge lavender

 

Gauge where you should place your cross on the metal ring by using the lavender picks.   Then hot glue your cross to the metal ring wreath.  

 

 Tools to add Lavender picks to easter wreath

 

Gather supplies for attaching Lavender floral picks to your Easter Wreath.  You will need wire cutters, zip ties and floral tape.

 

 

Gage where you wish to add both Lavender picks and zip tie them into place.  One on the top of your Christian Wreath and one of the bottom 

 

Cut Stems on Lavender

 

Now cut off the excess zip tie ends and the Lavender stems with the wire cutter.  Cover the black zip ties with green floral tape.

 

 

Snip apart the lily floral picks into 9  individual flowers.   Then bunch 3 lilies together, staggering them one above each other and wrap the stems with floral tape to hold them together and in place.  Repeat with the other lilies afterwards  you should have 3 bunches of 3 lilies that are staggered in a line. 

 

Zip Tie Lilies to our Christian Wreath

 

Zip tie your lily bunches to the metal ring. You need to place the bottom bunch facing downward so the Lily petals cover the stems of the bottom Lavender.   And the top one facing upwards to  cover the top lavender sprigs.
