Nail Cross Necklace Craft Kit
Great kit for older elementary/midschool
These nail cross kits were perfect for our older elementary and midschool aged VBS kids. We used 2 glue dots to hold the smaller nails to the larger nail, making it easier to hold in place while wrapping the wire. We had a few needle-nose pliers on hand to tug the wire tightly and tuck in sharp ends of the wire. Kits came with extra pieces, which we did need. It was nice to have a no-brainer, "open the package and go" craft--no prep needed. The nails and cross shape worked well to tie to the day's VBS teaching of "True Love", in that it shows Jesus' infinite love for us in dying on the cross to save us. Some of the kids had a "wow" moment when we pointed out how the nails symbolized the crucifixion.

These made a great craft project for our older kids at our VBS this year. They loved them and the teacher liked how quick and easy the project was!

This turns out to be a very nice little piece. Great for tweens and teens to make and give. It's nice to see a more "masculine" craft item suitable for older boys yet girls like them too.

My class enjoyed this project. It was quick and easy. We don,t always have time for an involved project so they liked a project that they could finish during class and then wear.

Wire not included to tie cross together
The included instructions describe tying the cross parts together with included wire. There was one problem---no wire only a black string in place of the wire. Either include the wire or write new directions. The cross is very difficult to hold together in order to tie with the included string (no wire). The wire makes sense. the string does not make sense.

Did not include what kit was supposed to
The kit was supposed to come with wire to put the cross necklace together but instead it had black string. I had to go out and purchase wire to put the necklace together.

Nail Cross Necklaces
I ordered these necklaces for our Bible School this year for grades 1 thru 7 and the kids really liked them. They are easier to work with once gluing the nails together and letting the glue set up over night. We used E-600.

when review of product in catalog, there was no mention of having to put the cross pieces together.
