A couple of months ago, my mom sent me a picture of a beautiful Easter Garden which I promptly pinned to recreate. I planned to do this in early March so I could use actual grass seed and watch it grow across my miniature garden. Please check out The Frugal Homemaker’s Tutorial for great tips about the type of seed to buy and where you can get it. Unfortunately, time got away from me, so I ended up purchasing moss from my local craft store to cover the garden…
- Large Clay Terra Cotta Plant Saucer
- Felt Pads
- Small Clay Terra Cotta Pot
- Large Rock (to represent a boulder)
- Small Rocks
- Sheet Moss- I found mine at Hobby Lobby
- Branches and Rose Stems
1. Add felt pads to the bottom of the plant saucer to protect the surface your garden will reside on.
2. Add soil to the saucer holding the small pot and large rock in place.
3. Cover with moss, breaking up the sheet as necessary.
4. I used rose stems to create the cross of Christ. It is to represent His crown of thorns as well as the wooden cross. Cut pieces of branches to create the other two crosses. Criss cross the yarn around each cross, leaving enough at the ends to tie in a knot to seal.
5. Add the crosses to the scene. Finish with some smaller rocks for added decoration. I wish the pictures showed the difference in the crosses more. I’m still working on my photography skills…
He is not here;
he has risen,
just as he said.
Come and see the place where he lay.
