Before you look at the tutorial, take a minute to check out the cute spouse gift I posted on Helpmate. It is a printable template to do 12 creative date nights throughout the year. What a great stocking stuffer and way to keep those date nights happening! You can read about them and find them here.
Okay, here is how to make this super duper easy nativity scene:
First I collected supplies: 2 medium sized wooden balls, 1 smaller wooden ball, 2 small pots, 1 tiny pot, acrylic paint in desired colors, Tacky glue, straw, fabric scraps and paint brushes.
I painted the materials and let them dry (it dries quickly!)
I drew on the faces with both paint and permanent marker and I filled the "manger" with straw. I Tacky glued all the heads into place.
Ta Da! Isn't that cute for a family with little ones? I thought about printing a verse on the manger, but I was short on time and worried I'd ruin it if I hurried.
