Nativity Craft

I could not find the website that I first saw this craft on, but I remembered somewhat how it was done and just improvised were needed. (ans YES we always seem to do crafts while we are still in our PJ's) This could make an excellent homemade Christmas gift for someone!

First this is a child/parent craft and takes alot of help at least for my kids from me.
Items needed:
2 small flower pots
1 small saucer
2 heads from the wood pieces in the craft store
2 small bodies from the wood pieces in craft section

My kiddos painted the pots & saucer, and I painted the heads and small bodies. Then we cut out pieces of felt just enough to cover Mary & Joseph and wrap baby Jesus in. Cut 8 pieces of Jute about 5 inches long for Mary's hair, and 12 pieces of jute about 3 inches long for the hay in manger. Then I took the hot glue gun and glued the heads on the bodies and attached the hair to Mary and then glued the jute into the manger. Then we glued on the felt to the baby Jesus and Mary & Joseph and let everything dry. I think they turned out very nice. I hope everyone enjoys!! Merry Christmas!!Jack's Nativity
