Jesus lives forever more
The stone’s been rolled away
There is life beyond death’s door
He is risen as he promised
Let the victory chorus swell
The tomb is empty
and Jesus is alive and well

On Tuesday of this week Heather from Feel Good about Dinner shared this Resurrection Day centerpiece idea. http://www.feelgoodaboutdinner.com/2013/03/menu-plan-for-week-of-march-24.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+FeelGoodAboutDinner+%28Feel+Good+About+Dinner%29
She got the idea from Kristen at We are that Family. http://wearethatfamily.com/2012/03/diy-mini-resurrection-garden/
Kristen found it on Pintrest (I stay away from Pintrest I know it would suck me in)
Looking through my potting supplies I came up with a tiny plastic seed-starter pot ,a terracotta saucer and some grass seed.
My tiny pot is only 2” in diameter and the saucer is 6” so I would have to scale everything back.
I could foresee two problems. Both involved the grass. With less than a week before the big day, would the grass grow in time? Secondly would grass be out of proportion in my scaled back version?
I headed out to my neighborhood park in search of inspiration and building materials.
A creek runs through the park. I knew the streambed would offer lots of rocks to choose from. While I was there it occurred to me that moss would make a great grass replacement. I also collected some pea gravel, sand, twigs and a couple of sprigs of lichen.
Put my sepulchre in place.
Made a gravel path.
Placed the stone in front of the grave.
Covered the hill with moss.
Planted the lichen so it looks like shrubbery.
Then used hot glue to made three crosses from the twigs.
I disassembled the whole thing; spray painted the inside of the flowerpot black and reassembled it. Ah, much better!
Total cost $0.00!
