Easter DIY Craft – How to Make a Resurrection Garden

Easter DIY How to Make a Resurrection Garden

Last year I shared with you our Resurrection Rolls and yesterday I shared with you another snack to use while teaching the Easter Story.  Today I am sharing an Easter DIY project that is one of my favorites!   A Resurrection Garden!  Just seeing this on our table reminds me of the true meaning of Easter and is a great reminder of so many things that I am blessed with!  It’s an amazingly easy project with lots of variety so feel free to make it your own!

You will need:

- A pot/saucer – Potting Soil
- A smaller terracotta pot
- Rocks (1 bag of small rocks and 1 large)
- Sticks
- Twine/Yarn
- Either Wheat Grass or Moss

First just put a little potting soil into your saucer.  Not a lot!

Next, lay your smaller pot on it’s side.  This will be your ‘tomb’.  Position it where you would like.

Now, lets add the rocks.  Use the small ones to create a pathway.  The large rock I rolled to the side of the tomb.  That way you can see inside that it is empty and that He is risen!

Fill in your garden with dirt.  You will want to go over the tomb!

To make the Crosses you simply break a stick and using either yarn, twine or even hot glut stick them together.

Originally we were going to plant wheat grass on ours.  It grows really quickly and is nice and thick.  But, instead we decided to go for the instant gratification of the moss. :)
