I wanted to make something for my door that was for Easter, but I didn't want it to be an Easter egg or a bunny, so I made this reversible Easter cross instead. It was easy enough for kids to do, and cost me less than $5!
1 sheet of white poster board
tissue paper (purple and white/cream)
First, measure out and draw a cross the size you want. (hard to see it in the pic)
Then, use Mod Podge to glue the tissue paper to the poster board BEFORE you cut it out. It is easier to make neat edges that way.
Repeat the same process with the other color of tissue paper.
Next, cut out one of the crosses. Attach the back of the cut cross to the back of the uncut cross. (I used spray adhesive, but you could just Mod Podge it as well)
Cut out the cross.
Use a Cricut to cut out sayings for each side and attach with Mod Podge. I used "Prepare the Way" (good idea Michelle) for my Lent side and "He is Risen" for my Easter side.
Cut a slit in the top of the cross and thread a piece of ribbon through. Hang it on your door and admire!
On Easter Sunday, flip the cross over and display the white side to celebrate our Risen Savior!
