In my Lenten Bleg post, I mentioned that I wanted to make a crown of thorns for Lent. Esther was kind enough to remind me that the project was posted at Elena’s blog, and I snatched the recipe right quick and we made the crown last night. Already, the girls are trying to figure out ways to pull out thorns.
Here are some pictures of the project.
The toughest part was braiding it!
Finished product after cooking for more than an hour at 300 degrees (pre-heated). **SPECIAL NOTE** You will want to let it cool in the oven so that it doesn’t crack. Ours sat overnight and was still not completely cool, but close enough.
It’s still a bit undercooked, but it will finish hardening over the next day or so.
