Sweet Simple Nativty

I am under my annual crunch time to make crafts for a craft show I go in.  It is this Saturday.  I have managed to make 18 of these amazing, sweet nativity ornaments so far.

They were so easy to make,  The hard part was finding this type of clothes pin.  I actually found them at a locally owned little dollar store.  Although, I did find them for the same price in packs of 100 on Amazon.
I had to cut the bottom part off 1/3 of them to be baby Jesus.  I glued 2 together, one just a little higher than the other for Mary and Joseph. I tied a raffia bow on all the baby Jesus', then glued Him on an angle across the front.
These rusty stars were from Ebay. I twisted rusty wire trough the star, then glued it to the back of the ornament. You can see it in the picture below.  The twine hanger is also glued in the back.  I used Goop glue for the gluing because I find it is so strong and won't fall apart.

They turned out so adorable!

God bless you and thank you for stopping by.
