Merry Christmas with a few Nativity Crafts

Our Family in "Bethlehem"

Merry Christmas to one and all!! I hope you have a joyous holiday remembering the best gift we ever got was Jesus!!

On that note, here are a couple of Jesus crafts.

This is a simple one with half a walnut shell, peg doll and scrap of felt or fabric. Hazel added a face as well. I need to glue a ribbon on to it so we can hang it on the tree.

This one was inspired by the cinnamon stick manger at Childmade. We changed it a bit. We did not use anything on the back and just glued the sticks to each other. Then we added some "hay" instead of the quote. We used flannel instead of muslin because we had it and we made the gold ring out of a pipe cleaner. Hazel loved working with the cinnamon sticks.
