This week for Scouts, we had the boys work on their 'Artist' badge by making a little Christmas nativity. My partner had been given a gift of a nativity made from simple clay pots and wooden beads so we used that for an inspiration. We went from this...
First we painted the heads and pots,
and then painted (and re-painted) on the little faces and hot-glued the heads on the Mary and Joseph bodies. I used the wrong end of my paintbrush to dot the eyes on. I had to re-do it a few times until I was satisfied. This picture shows one of the very UN-satisfying versions.
I hot-glued scraps of burlap to their heads,
and now possess my very-first Nativity!
Isn't the little Jesus-bead so cute?!? He's plopped in his manger atop some of that crinkly paper from the dollar store.
So cheap and easy! (I think I say that at the end of every post!) :)
