I stopped in my tracks on Pinterest when I saw this photo the other day:
(I researched it and I believe it originated on the creator’s Facebook page and ended up on Pinterest. Thank you, Melissa Holt for the beautiful idea!)
I knew it would be on our list for Spring Break this week. Easter is still three weeks away, but as Christians we celebrate it every day, right?
Since I have three do-it-yourselfers at home and I’m a very wise mom, I knew that one Resurrection Garden would lead to sin (also known as sibling rivalry). So we created three mini Resurrection Gardens.
It was easy to make, everyone got to add their own touches and it cost pretty much the same as making one large one like the picture above.
Supplies Needed: We found all of ours at WalMart and averaged about $7.50 per mini garden.
- Terra cotta mini pot (tomb)
- Terra cotta small tray
- Small pebbles from Floral dept(one bag was plenty for three)
- Grass seed (we have enough left over for the bare patch in our yard)
- One small bag of potting soil
- Small twigs and Large rock (smaller than a child’s fist) from the yard
- Glue gun
- Spray water bottle
1. Place mini pot on the tray and add potting soil around it.
2. Pack soil in and on top of the mini pot, forming a small hill.
3. Add pebbles coming from the opening of the “tomb”
4. Place larger rock half covering the tomb
5. Sprinkle grass seed on the soil
6. Glue small twigs to form three crosses (hot glue works best)
7. Stick each cross into the “hill” behind the tomb
8. Spray soil lightly every day with water bottle
9. Watch and wait for new life (grass) to spring forth!
It’s a beautiful reminder that He is Risen!
