Puffy Cross Hanger

This is a favorite when it comes to cross crafts. Kids love scrunching the tissue paper and the end result is a colorful work of art.


  • Hanger: Print crosses page (below) onto white card stock paper then cut in half. For each, punch holes about 1 inch from both top corners then write the Bible/lesson point across the top.
  • Puffy decor: 20-25 tissue paper squares (2″ x 2″) of varying colors
  • Hanger loop: pipe cleaner


  • Glue


  • Place glue on a small section of the cross then one by one, scrunch tissue paper squares and place them onto the glued section – I worked about 4 squares at a time
  • Continue until the entire cross is decorated with tissue paper
  • Attach the pipe cleaner to the holes at the top of the craft to create a loop for hanging


Print making sure the image takes up the entire sheet and doesn't get scaled. Here are some properties you may see in the print dialog:

  • DO NOT "Fit to page" or "Shrink to fit"
  • Select "Fill Page", "Actual Size", or make sure Scale is set to 100%
  • "Borderless Printing" should be ON, or make sure there are no margins set
  • Select "Auto Portrait/Landscape" or make sure the image is not sideways on the page
