Unity braid cross



I decided to make this unity braid cross for our wedding instead of doing the usual sand unity ceremony. We wanted something different than what most did, we did this at our ceremony by braiding the three cords of rope together to make one big braid(tying the knot). I struggled trying to figure out how I was going to keep the rope attached to it and figured out a drawer pull knob was perfect. It is a nice bigger peice that will fit perfectly on the wall with our wedding pictures beside it. I think it was a big hit cause quite a few people came up asking about it at the reception. We both were very pleased with it and how it came out and can see it everyday on our wall at our house now. Any questions just ask.

  • I absolutely love this idea! We are doing the same thing at our wedding...if I can get it finished. I have been trying to figure out how to secure the rope to pull knobs... Do you have step by step directions you could share? Video? Would you mind giving me some guidance on how to secure the ends of the rope around the pulls?
