Standing Cross Decoration Craft Kit
Nice, Easy Project
This is a really nice, inexpensive craft that is suitable for just about any ages. The hardest part is getting the popsickle stick into the foam, but with adult help, it was managable. Requires glue, but is still well worth it. I'd definitely recommend this one!

Children Were So Excited To Make These
The colors are not the same as in the ad but are correct and look very good. This craft is easy and does not have many parts. All the children put their own individual style into them and were very proud of their work. All of the little creations looked adorable!
*TIP - Another reviewer mentioned using paper clips to hold the sash in place on the cross which was very good advice.

All the parts have to be glued on. No adhesive backing. Glue stick won't hold so you have to use white glue. That takes so long to dry that the kids had to leave their projects this morning and won't get to take them home until next week. The draping is too stiff so we had to hold it in place with paperclips temporarily while it dries. The buttons don't hold well to the foam flowers and then when the flowers are glued to the Styrofoam base, they slide down even if the appropriate amount of glue is used. Maybe glue dots would have worked better, but this requires too much time and adult help if you assemble it as directed. Also the company logo stamped on the cross is tacky and cheap looking.

Cute craft but worst branding placement ever
I was really excited about this craft for our Sunday School kids. It looks cute and easy enough to assemble. Everything looked great...until I opened the package and saw "orientaltrading.com" and the item number stamped boldly across the back of the large craft stick which serves as part of the cross. This feels very inappropriate that the branding be so blatantly stamped on the cross, of all things! We'll probably end up buying our own to replace this piece or try to find a way to cover it up.

Ease of project
We found the cross swag difficult to drape due to its stiffness - the OTC logo makes it look tacky - styrofoam balls on 1/3 weren't cut - under 8-9 yr. had difficulty - definately needed adults help.

Bought this for 2nd grade craft during easter party. This was a hit.

Best Purchase Ever
I have used this craft for the past 7 years. Every year it is a big hit. I teach 3rd grade CCD. Everyone really enjoys doing this craft. I highly recommend it. A few times I used the glue dots. Other times I used tacky glue. I give each child a tooth pick and a glob of glue on a paper towel. The tooth pick seems to work the best with their small hands and trying to apply the glue to the item.

Worked very well for Children's church (k-2nd grade). They finished in about 10-15 minutes and had a nice craft to take home.

Easy, quick, looks nice
Cross and grass colors aren't as vibrant as shown in photo (cross is yellowish more than brown; grass is lighter green), but looks nice anyway. EASY to assemble, but I recommend hot glue for gluing the cross together. Kids liked them.

I'm 14 yrs old and I used this craft for my little siblings, who ages range from 5-8, they all liked the craft, though it sent too many flowers for me to use on the craft itself. But better too many than not enough! The colors were different, and the base was too, but I still was pleased with it. We used hot-glue to put it together and it worked nicely. I am very pleased with it!
