New Banner


I'm in the process of making a new church banner for my local church(St Barnabas) which has to be ready for Palm Sunday on April 17th.
My friend Dimity who attends the same church is helping as well.
As you can see there is a cross with a crown of thorns over the top and there will be a palm leaf behind the lower half of the cross.
We are also making 3D thorns which will be attached by hand to give it texture.
Sorry about the bump underneath but that is the carpet behind it.
The pins at the bottom are there because some of the palm leaves have to be attached under the cross.
I will show you the finished banner when it is hanging in the church in April.

You've taken on another big challenge. I'm sure it will be beautiful when you finish, and a wonderful addition to the church.
