I haven’t crafted a whole lot of Easter decor this season and I have been saving a little wood cross I found at my local dollar store for when the inspiration hit. Today was the day! I made the most beautiful Easter cross decor display using that dollar store find and a few items from my home decor boutique, Roost and Restore Home.
It all started when I was making my usual Monday morning stroll through the store. I like to look around the displays after a couple days off to see if there is anything that needs to be restocked or perhaps change up the display all together, if the inspiration hits. This morning was no different. I was browsing our collection of hand picked home goods and grabbed this bundle of Dutch sola wood flowers.
I knew right away they were the missing piece I needed to create the Easter cross decor I had been dreaming up for a few weeks. Them stems were long and had a great bumpy texture and the flowers were a soft ivory color that would be lovely in any decor arrangement.
I grabbed them up and took them to my craft table and began to dissect them a bit. I shared this process LIVE via Facebook but I will explain the details here too. If you’d like to watch the replay I have linked it below!
I began by staining the wooden cross with a dark custom blended stain left over from the March DIY DECOR BOX.

All I had to do with these stems was clip the flowers from the top and cut the remaining stems to size. The cross itself was my guide for determining the length of the stems.
Hot glue the stems to the surface of the wood cross, Criss crossing in the center.
Wrap twine around the intersecting stems attached to teh cross.
Style on a tray or use a charger and chicken wire cloche like I did with mine!
