Metamorphosis Monday – Resurrection Garden   17 comments

Metamorphosis Monday

First  and foremost, I apologize for my lousy before picture.  While I was working on this project, I received a phone call that my mom had fallen on a sidewalk outside the tea room she was to celebrate her birthaday at with my sisters and nieces down in California.  So, needless to say I was a little distracted.  She is fine – just in pain and has two real nice black eyes!

So, the project I was working on was my Resurrection Garden centerpiece for Easter Sunday.  Here’s the before:


The picture above does not show my cool plate I purchased at Michael’s to transform into my Resurrection garden.  Oh well!

Here’s the finished project:


I used a lidded box for the empty tomb by cutting a door in the box. The stone that covered the tomb is a premade ornament that I covered with little stones which I also used on the tomb and the walkway to the tomb.  I also covered the tomb with some of the moss as well. Then I used mini succulents and pieces of flower arrangements to put the finishing touches on the garden.  A great project for Easter!

Have a wonderful Holy week everyone and I hope you have a chance to celebrate Easter Sunday thanking Jesus for dying on the cross for our sins. The reason for the true metamorphosis in my life!

  7. That is really a great project for Easter! And you’re right, excepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior and becoming born again is the biggest metamorphosis one can make. Great choice for Metamorphosis Monday at Easter time. Mary from Boogieboard Cottage

  11. Hello Susan…

    What an awesome Met Monday post! I was looking at all of your items in the “before” photo…wondering…what you’d come up with and was just blown away with what you created!!! I love how you recreated the tomb and the that the stone had been rolled away! Such a beautiful Resurrection Garden…and I have to totally agree with you…Jesus is the real reason we celebrate Easter and he is definitely in the metamorphosis (life changing) business!!! He transformed my life 31 yrs. ago and I have never been the same!!!

    Happy Resurrection Day, my friend!
