Five Minute Friday – “GLUE” for Holy Week Crafts


Start . . .



e have been doing some crafts this past week for this Holy Week and Resurrection Sunday and the main ingredient we have used to put some things together is GLUE.  In the past we have made Jesus’ tomb but this year, we did it a little different and more detailed.

Remember Jesus ~ made our own garden with glued rocks for tomb and used rye grass and moss, along with sticks from yard.We made Jesus’ garden in this old raised dish.  One of my daughters found moss and we also planted some rye seed which we have had to cut down a couple of times.  Then, we used a lot of hot glue and made a tomb.  It is hard to tell in the picture, but there is an opening. That big rock will be rolled in front of it, and Resurrection Sunday, it will be rolled away! The candles with Jesus carrying the cross was handmade by Ann Voskamp’s son.  

Another Pinterest idea we put together is a decoupage candle with spring flowers and sections from an old songbook with hymns torn out that are typically sung for Easter. Again, lots of glue to put this together.  From a distance, it looks very shinny and not like something that has been well glued with magazine pictures and hymn pages!

  1. Oh my goodness! I love your crafts! They are breath-taking! I especially loved your Jesus Garden; I felt compelled to do something like this with my children (next year of course). Don’t you just love decoupage!? I’m almost convinced it was sent from Heaven; literally! Hopping over from the 5 Minute Friday link-up party 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!
