~ What ~
Made of solid natural wood, this set contains a total of 30 crosses in 2 sizes and 2 designs. The large natural and dark wood crosses measure 1.6 by 1.2 inches while the Jerusalem 4-point crosses come in natural and black are 0.6 inches square. Each has a small pre-punched hole; a 13 foot-long black cord is included. They arrive in a cellophane bag with no instructions, ready for using or giving.
~ Why ~
Since I like to make jewelry, these are ideal as the perfect way to complete a bracelet or necklace. They could also be used to tie to presents with a ribbon or glue onto craft projects. I appreciate they have predrilled holes on the sides, not on top, so they lay flat. With their spiritual meaning, the religious icons can be used at Sunday school, classes, and as party favors.
~ Why Not ~
Those who do are not DIYers may have no need for these crosses. Others may not realize that the 4-point cross is designed as the centuries-old Jerusalem cross that is now being used again and more often. Others may not like the color of the wood, but they can be painted.
~ Wish ~
I wish it stated on the Amazon page the sizes by inches not centimeters. It would be ideal if some of the holes were a little larger to pass threading or cording through.
~ Want ~
If you like making homemade gifts that focus on the cross of Jesus, these are nice for jewelry or decorating.
