Easter is when we celebrate the Savior, Jesus Christ’s Resurrection from the tomb. “Death was conquered, man is free, Christ has won the victory!”

His resurrection is a great source of hope. Why not share that hope with those you love and admire! Enjoy this free Easter printable.

Resurrection Garden

What You Need:

Small Terra-cotta Pot

Large Terra-cotta Plate

One Round Rock

Pea Gravel

Grass Seed

Potting Soil

Thin sticks

Squirt Bottle

How to Make:

Place small terra-cotta pot in the middle of the terra-cotta plate. Fill the plate with potting soil. Be sure to make a large dome of dirt, that it covers the small terra-cotta pot and is shaped similar to a hill. Leave a few inches in front of the pot for the pea grave.

Usually every year I use pea gravel for my small rocks. If you don’t know what pea gravel is, it’s the small rocks used in playgrounds. Pour your gravel in front on the terra-cotta pot. Make sure it is spread evenly and lays flat.

Side note: Since we moved last year, I stupidly through out my old Resurrection Garden materials. My round rock, pea gravel and stick crosses. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Why I did that, I’ll never know! 🤷🏻‍♀️

So word to the wise… save all of your supplies it in a small tote. Be sure to label it! Which will make it much easier to find each Easter. Trust me, you don’t want to have to find all new materials… because then you will miss your old perfect round rock. Sigh…

Anyways… This year my husband had a great idea! He suggested using aquarium gravel. Mostly because he didn’t want to go with me to hunt down a handful of pea gravel somewhere… 😂 I wonder why?

Once you get your round dirt mound situated, pat it into place just a little. The firmer the mound the easier your sticks will fit in. That way they don’t flop to the side, due to loose soil. Place small round rock next to the opening of the terra-cotta pot.

Next comes that grass seed.

I always try to purchase the smallest bag of seed I can find! But am usually left with a ton of extra seed. So I would highly suggest making this with a group of ladies or sharing with a friend.

Another awesome tip, is to check your local nursery for seed first! Sometimes they sell you just a scoop of seed. Not all do, but it doesn’t hurt to ask. You’ll save yourself a few dollars and peace of mind. Knowing you didn’t waste a bag of seed or desperately trying to find someone to give it to.

Next you are going to sprinkles your grass seed over the top. Be sure to spread it evenly over the dirt. For some reason the seed I bought this year was dyed green. So don’t panic if yours doesn’t look the exact same!

Once your seed is spread out evenly, pour a small amount of dirt over the seed. Not too much, but just a light enough layer to cover up the seeds.

Next you make your crosses. Make sure they are tall enough that they won’t be hidden once the grass shoots up. I made my 3 vertical about 5-6 inches tall. And my 3 horizontal sticks about 3 inches long. Using a hot glue gun, glue them together. Be sure to make three crosses!

Space them out evening towards the back of your dirt hill. You might want to pinch the dirt around each stick once it’s in place, so that it doesn’t tip over or fall out.

You are finished! It is as simple as that!

Directions for growing grass:

Purchase a small squirt bottle, you can sometimes find them at the dollar store, or Walmart for a couple of bucks.

Make sure the nozzle setting isn’t set to jet stream. That’s where it shoots a straight line of water. You want to use a mist setting to spray the soil.

The key to growing the grass is to keep it moist, all through the day. Keep in a window sill. Somewhere it can receive sunlight. It will start sprouting small blades of grass poking out in about 4-5 days.

It will take up to 2 weeks for grass to fully come in. Keep watering it and you will be surprised how tall your grass grows! One year I had to cut my grass down with a pair of scissors.

1 Week – Progress

After 2 weeks, you will have a beautiful resurrection Garden full of tall, lush, green grass.

Thoughts by L:

I love this Easter decoration!

If you don’t know what Easter is, it is a Christian holiday. A celebration of the belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the New Testament of the Bible, the event is said to have occurred three days after Jesus was crucified by the Romans and died in roughly 30 A.D.

I am a believer. A member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

I have a testimony that Christ did live upon the earth. That He atoned for our sins. That He didn’t stop there. He also bore the pains and afflictions of all who has ever lived or ever will live. I know that He was indeed, crucified and hung on a cross. But I testify that He did rise up from the tomb, 3 days later. Returning to His Father in Heaven presence, awaiting the day He shall come again.

I know He lives today. That He loves you!

This decoration is a reminder of His sacrifice and eternal gift of love, for you and all mankind.

Easter Bunny!

Kirklands Easter Bunny!

This Easter decoration is one of my all time favorites!

I found it at Kirklands.

If you have no clue what I’m talking about, look it up right now!

We bought a new house over a year ago and there is a Kirklands store, just a couple blocks away… It’s becoming an issue! 😂 Or at least my husband likes to tease that it is.

Kirkland’s is full of beautiful decorations for your home. I love their decorations because they fit the modern farmhouse style of my home perfectly!

The best part about Kirkland’s is that everything is affordable and reasonably priced! So don’t be surprised, when I’m all my fun finds are from Kirkland’s.

So here’s what the Easter Bunny looks like once it’s hung up outside…

My front door

Isn’t it adorable?

Usually every year I just hang a colorful floral wreath for spring. This year I decided I wanted to be a little more festive.

I decided to buy this decoration because it was on sale for $14.99… Yes, you read that right! No typo’s here.

Like I said… affordable decorations!

This adorable bunny is made of wood, with soft foam flowers and a thick rope to hang it by. My only suggestion/alteration would be to shorten the rope. I wanted my bunny to be centered in the panel of my door.

With such a long rope he hung a little too low on my door, for my liking. But my wreath hanger comes down a little farther than most. So keep that in mind, you might not have to tie a knot in yours. Hang it up first, before making any adjustments.

So I just tied a knot in the rope. Right behind one of the bunnies ear. You could cut it down if you chose to, but we tend to move a lot and all doors are not alike. I didn’t want to make it a permanent adjustment.

So like I mentioned before, if you haven’t heard of Kirkland’s go google it now!

However, I will attach the link so you can buy yourself your own little Easter bunny.
