  1. Paint the back and front of the paper plate gray. Allow time to dry.
  2. While the paper plate is drying. Print, cut out, and color the angel and Jesus.
  3. Once the paper plate is dry, cut in half and cut out an opening on one paper plate half. Glue the paper plate halves together as shown.
  4. Glue the paper Jesus and angel onto the paper plate tomb.
  5. Glue the craft sticks into cross shapes and glue to the tomb as shown.
  6. Lightly spray the gray cardstock with water on both sides and form into a rock shape. The water makes it easier to crinkle and will hold its form better. Allow time for your craft to dry.
