You may be in a quandary deciding on how to start making your Easter garden. Fear not – it’s dead easy and you’ll likely have everything at home. Well, the garden to be more precise.
You will need –
- A tray – an old baking tray is perfect
- Soil/mud – some mossy for the top
- Flowers – preferably flowering and planted in soil
- Twigs for the crosses
- An old glass – plastic picnic cup will do
- One large stone/rock
Fill the baking tray with soul.
Dig up the flowers with the soil and transfer to one side of tray.
Place the cup/glass in the tray near the flowers and cover/pack around with soul. That’s the tomb.
Use string to bind two twigs to make a cross. You need 3 crosses – for Jesus and the thieves.
On the side opposite to the flowers mske a slight mound with the soil. Sticky in the crosses.
Use the stones to decorate around to give a rocky effect.
The large stone should partially cover the opening of the glass to show that the stone had rolled away.
Make sure the top layer is a layer of moss.
There you have it –
An Easter Garden
Tip – it’s best to grow your flowers ahead or buy some fresh seasonal plants.
