Nativity ornament

I know I'm not alone when I say that I think next to Instagram the coolest app and most addicting has to be PINTEREST - I mean while I don't sit for hours at a time, I think you could probably add up the different times a day I do use it to equal out about 2-3 hours over a 10 hour day - 1/2 hour here 10 minutes there...but I love looking for fun PINS to try and this is one of them...

You tell me: close but made it my own.

Here is my version. Which I love❤️ I wanted to add some color to my ornament so I painted Mary & Joseph a light cream color and added a bitty blanket to keep Baby Jesus warm. I love the how similar but totally different they are. 

Anyway you only need a few things to make these ornaments:

A large star ( painted gold) 2 vintage or old looking clothespins adding some cream paint you'll also need a smaller peg doll for Baby Jesus, who I also painted cream the. Cut a small piece of gold felt into a square and wrap up the Baby and tie off with some jute... Cuteness all around.

Hope you are getting your holiday crafting on. Talk soon - xo
I'll be linking this up to the parties above.
