Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter | Make 1

 

In churches around the world palm crosses are often distributed on Palm Sunday. While they are usually made from beautifully folded palm leaves, teaching youngsters to fold their own cross is simple and can make a beautiful embellishment.

There are many instructions online, and more than one method, but personally I found the simplist way to learn was to watch.

Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter | Make 1Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter | Make 1Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter | Make 1 This craft uses very few resources, and can be so easily adapted..
We took a single sheet of A4 card and used it’s shortest side to cut strips from.

You need one very thin strip to make the cross and one about 4 times it’s width or greater for the bookmark.
The thread used was quite thin so we twisted the ends in opposite directions, then folded it in half and allowed it to twist together, this gave us a thread 4 strands thick.

We used this to our advantage by slipping the top of the cross onto the loop made in one end.
Thread the unused end through a small hole at the top of the bookmark. Separating the threads pull the very end over the card and tied the two pieces together at the front. you can either cut the remainder off, or trim and glue down what is left.

The necklaces are even simpler, just fold the cross and thread onto thick thread or a long twisted piece. We left them long enough to knot into a permanent knot.

For this craft we used the crosses as necklaces and book marks but there is no reason why you can’t add them to other crafts like Easter scene pictures. I once made a huge number and decorated a church wall with them… the possibilities are endless. Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter | Make 1
