Episode 5: A Fun and Simple DIY Nativity
We love to celebrate Christmas and believe in creating meaningful decor to help ring in the reason for the season. That is why we love this simple Nativity wreath. You can hang this wreath on your door or place it on a mantel. This is a great project in which you can have little helpers trace Nativity shapes, help place the moss on the wreath, and arrange the sisal trees. This will be a cherished craft you and your little ones can look at joyfully each season.
Items You’ll Need:
- Twig wreath form
- Assortment of Moss
- Wood textured paper
- Hot Glue Gun
- Sisal Mini Trees
- Nativity Printout
- Find a Nativity silhouette that you connect to and would like to place in wreath form
- Print out silhouette, cut it out to use as a template
- Place cutout silhouette figures on top of the textured wood paper, trace and cut out
- Find desired position to place the figures on the wreath form, glue in pieces in wreath form.
- Place and glue moss around the wreath
- Place and glue down sisal trees around the wreath base
- Voila… finished!
Place on your mantel or tie a ribbon and place on your front door.
