Suggested reading: The Easter Story

 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”
— John 14:2 (KJV)

Materials:

Step 1: Spread a thin layer of glue on the cup.

Step 2: Press cotton balls into the glue so that they stick onto the sides of the cup. Keep adding cotton balls until the sides of the cup are completely covered by cotton balls. (It will end up looking like a big fluffy cotton ball cloud.)

Step 3: Print out Jesus template (roughly the size of a wallet photo) then color Jesus and Cut him out.

Step 7: Feed yarn through the inside of the cup and out through the hole at. When looking at the craft, the opening of the cup should be facing Jesus so that if you pull on the string Jesus will go up inside the cup.

Step 8: Tie the end of the string not attached to Jesus around a cotton ball to prevent the string from passing back through the hole.
