How To: DIY Home Decor Cross (Tommy Bahama Inspired)


It started months ago, looking for the perfect cross for our home. Unfortunately we couldn’t find one (hobby stores, department stores, christian stores, etc), so why not DIY it!? On our registry, we registered for tommy bahama goodies. I envisioned a kitchen that was bright, fresh, but not a hot mess of mismatched-ness. So, if you want to bring your own flavor to your family cross, here’s what you’ll need:

  • Inspiration
  • Paint
  • Brushes
  • Super Glue
  • Wooden crosses (from Michael’s)
  • Surface to work

Est Time: 20 Min (including dry time)

Lets get started!
