When I was up in my attic yesterday looking for something, I came across an old tobacco dryer that I found about 10 years ago. This “stick” has been packed up and moved with us waiting for me to do something with it.
Just as I was about to finally toss it the light bulb went on. It looked like an old rugged cross.
So, I sawed the end off and wrapped some twine around it to hold it in a cross shape.
Then I spray painted a grapevine wreath with some almond spray paint, and cut some Lilly’s off a bush I got at Hobby Lobby. Hot glued everything together and got the vision that I had in my head.
And I just love the burned out green velvet ribbon made to look like wood grain. At last this old stick found its home. Reminding us each time we walk by the sacrifice that He made for us.
I will be sharing this over at all these great blogs. Remember to stop by when you can! Toot you Horn Tuesday – 2nd Time Around – Get your craft on – Trash to Treasure – Show and Tell – Thrift Thursday – Transformation Thursday -
