Easter Themed Cross and Crown Sign

Today, we are posting our Easter themed cross and crown wood sign.

Who doesn’t love decorations that can be used for more than one holiday? This sign can double as a Valentine’s Decoration and an Easter Decoration.

We used some metal crosses that we found at Hobby Lobby as the X’s and some rusty barbed wire to create Jesus’ crown of thorns as the O’s. Then we added the words “Oh, How He Loves Us”.

We put together a short video on our YouTube channel and a list of supplies below. We would love for you to watch and tell us what you think.
