Happy Easter! I made a wooden cross this year for the yard. I cut the design out of some plywood with a jigsaw and then I painted it with some white house paint. I then painted over that with brown....and did a white wash (water and white paint) brushed on top of all of that to give it a streak-ie look. I put a coat of polyurethane over the whole thing. I nailed it to a yard stake and added a ribbon to the center.
