A Nativity Project

Chris over at Just a Girl is hosting a "I can make that" Party. This Nativity Scene was given to my mom last Christmas by her friend, Myra. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make some for this Christmas. The kids and I have been (slowly) working on these since Christmas. I'll show you our progress. How I HOPE mine turn out!
We've painted the pots and heads. Then hot glued the
heads to the bottom of the pots.
Joseph - 2" pot and 1 1/2" wooden ball head
Baby Jesus - 1 1/2" pot and 1/2" wooden ball head

Mary - 2" pot and 1 1/2" wooden ball head


We've still got lots to do to our precious Nativity Scenes. I've got to give my mom's back soon - we'll have to get a move on to get ours done for display and to give to wonderful friends.

You just made my day! My kids were asking for their very own nativity set all day. I was going to get cheapo ones at Dollar Tree, but these are so much cuter - and doubly fun because they're a craft! Thanks for the great idea!!
