Clay Pot Nativity

>> Monday, November 22, 2010

So we don't have any snow on the ground.  Our decorations and tree aren't up.  But I AM playing Christmas CDs and I pulled out our Christmas movies this past weekend.

But the biggest thing that rings in the Christmas season here is the first of the Christmas crafts that I make.

I've been dying to make a little Nativity set for our entertainment center.  We have our traditional one that we've had since we first got married, but I wanted something homemade.  So I made this:

It was pretty easy to make.  I actually made it while watching Dancing With The Stars!

I used two miniature clay pots which I painted brown and dark blue.  The heads are those cute little wooden balls, which I left natural and just painted some eyes and glued on hair.  Baby Jesus was a little wooden doll body with painted eyes.  The manger was a clay plate painted brown with some straw glued on it. was that easy.

And I'm so proud of the finished product!

I love this post. Because 'Son' has left home this year Grumpy old Hubby has gleefully banned Christmas from our house. I miss those happy years of getting it all ready. Your post cheered me up hugely. New follower here now from Sunday relax and Surf blog hop.
