The Easter Story in Colors

Easter Garland Christ Colors by Amy Renea

The story of Easter is the story of Christ and one of the easiest ways to tell the story is through color.

Alternatively, you can use ANYTHING of those 5 colors! (Green is sometimes used as well)

The great thing about these garland kits is that everything you need is right there for you.  The rosettes are pre-assembled and the kit comes with string and tiny clothespins.  It is so simple the kids can help!

Making Garlands with Crafts Unleashed

 Simply attach the rosettes with the clips to your strings in the following order:

GOLD: The story starts with God and Christ in Heaven

BLACK: Represents the Sin of Adam and Eve

RED: Represents Christ on the Cross to Save Mankind

WHITE: Represents the Cleansing of Sin

PURPLE: Represents the Royal Kingdom of God

The story is simple enough for children to understand, but you can get more detailed in the full Easter story.  In addition to the garlands, I decided to add Bible verses with each colored rosette in frames.  When you are bored at family Easter dinner, they make for a little reading material :)  Here are the verses for your reference:

GOLD: (Matthew 5:48, Revelation 21:22-23)
BLACK: (Romans 3:23)
RED: (Romans 5:8)
WHITE: (Psalm 51:1-2)
PURPLE: (2 Timothy 4:8)
Verses Printable
If you would like to go into even more detail, you could also add in the green rosettes symbolizing new life (Colossians 1:10) and the pink color is sometimes used to illustrate the free gift God gives of salvation (Matthew 28:19-20).    I think the pink is kind of stretching it, so I stuck to the common 5 core colors.  I hope you have a lovely Easter celebration this year --  Christos Anesti!
