How to Make a Rustic Cross Using Sticks and Twine

Article by Keri

This Rustic Cross was so easy to make and in this post I’ll be sharing How to Make a Rustic Cross Using Sticks and Twine.

The first thing I did was take sticks from the yard, and wrapped them tightly in 2 bundles, using jute twine. 

When wrapping, I left the starting end longer so after I finished wrapping the sticks I could make a knot with the other end of the twine, so that the bundle would be tightly fastened.

I then wrapped the two bundles of sticks tightly together, using jute twine, to make a cross. 

Again I left the ends of the jute twine longer so they could be tied in knots. 

I then made a very small hanger using jute twine to thread through the back of the jute bundles, so that the cross could be fastened to a nail on the wall.

I also wanted to share in this post Why I Celebrate Easter.  I believe it was Jesus’ death on the cross that paid the price for humanity’s sins.  I believe that Jesus’ resurrection brings hope of eternal life to those who put their trust in Him.

When I look at the cross, I feel gratitude.  I deserved death, but Jesus willingly took my place on that cross.  My sins cut me off from God, who is perfect, but Jesus stepped in and said He would pay my debt, so that I could have a relationship with God.

God the Father raised Jesus from the dead on the 3rd day because of this Jesus has victory over death.  I believe that because I put my trust in Jesus, when I die I will have eternal life in Heaven with God.  That gives me reason to celebrate!!
