What you’ll need

  • Old plastic ornament
  • Fabric (I used velvet)

Baby Jesus:

What you’ll need

  • Hay or Dry Grass
  • Tiny Wooden Peg People
  • Feltย  (scissors)
  • Hot Glue
  • Clear ornament with hole

(use a hot knife to make a hole if you can’t find an ornament with a hole)

I used my hot knife to make a hole in my ornament. I didn’t pre-draw my circle so mine turned out pretty messy. Use your felt to wrap up your baby Jesus and secure it with hot glue. Stuff your ornament with hay. Flatten it and insert your baby Jesus inside.ย  (you can use hot glue to make sure everything stays in place.
