A palm frond about 1/2 inch wide
and 18 - 24 inches long will make an average size cross.
1. Hold the frond horizontally 2. Bend the right end straight up from the center to form a right
angle. 3. Fold this same top strip, from the center, back and down,
up and over again, to form a square at the back. It will still
be a right angle at this point. 4. Bring the left strip forward and fold over the center towards
the right. Fold away from you and pull through the square at
back, all the way. 5. Bend the top strip forward and put the end through the center
square to make a shaft of desired length. 6. Fold left hand strip backwards and put through the back square.
This makes the left crossbar and should be in proportion to the
shaft. 7. Fold the right strip back, put through the back square and
Pattern #2 (the easiest!)
Take a palm frond about 1/2 inch
wide and 18 - 24 inches and hold upright.
1. Fold the top down, away from you,
and the bottom up, away from you, to form the shaft of a cross
of desired length. 2. Turn the end down and twist around to the right and across
the front of the shaft to make a crossbar in proportion to the
length. 3. Fold the end around behind the shaft. 4. Bring the end from behind, under the center. Fold from the
bottom right to the top left and under again from the bottom
left to the top right. 5. Fasten the end through the back loops to lock.
Finally, here's the BEST video we've seen on the "hows" of creating palm Crosses:
