I am decorating my mantle for Spring and Easter and I have a lot of bunnies but I wanted something different. While shopping in HomeGoods I noticed a lot of large wooden crosses and I just knew that a cross would be the perfect item to add to my mantle. You can find a variety of crosses in all different stores but I wanted to make one that will go with all of my other decorations.
The supplies I will be using are:
1. One cooling rack from the Dollar Tree
2. Cream chunky yarn
3. Hot glue
4. Tan nautical rope from the Dollar Tree
5. Wire cutters
6. Zip ties
The first step is to cut the cooling rack. You will want to cut it into three pieces . You want each piece to have three rows. You will have to trim some excess off.
Once you have the three pieces you will need to form the cross.
I overlapped two pieces to give me one strip measuring 21 inches long.
