“That I may know Christ, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings…being conformed to His death.” Philippians 3:10

Beauty from brokenness is shown in this beautiful craft that highlights Christ’s journey to the cross. By letting His body be broken for us we experience the transforming work of His love within us.

Step 5: If you have two crosses that you’re working on, you can place them side by side and transfer the shards from one cross to another.

Step 6: Carefully press the shards into the grout and let dry overnight (place an adhesive hanger on the back.
