This is a little bitty Nativity. It is so sweet.
Here's a little size reference for you!
It is made with a very small grapevine wreath. About 1 1/2 inches across. I buy these at Hobby Lobby or Michael's. They are about a dollar for 4 or 5 in a bundle. The "hay" is some straw like packaging stuff from something that was shipped to us. You can buy it at the craft stores as well or snip up some raffia and glue it in there. Whatever you have.
Baby Jesus is a scrap of cross stitch fabric but I have used muslin and white burlap. Just a scrap of natural looking fabric. His little head is a small wooden "plug" used for wood working. I can't rememmber exactly what they are called but I buy mine at Lowe's in the department with shelves and screw on wooden legs - that kind of stuff. You get a bunch in a bag for just a couple of dollars. I give him little pink cheeks and two Sharpie dots for eyes. That's it. I glue him in the fabric scrap, bundle it up and tie a little raffia around him to hold it all together.
That's it. Quick and precious! I have made literally hundreds of these over the years - College Girl was two when I made the first one. I have done this with children and Senior Adults - everyone loves it. I have used them as package toppers on gifts wrapped in brown kraft paper.
It's just sweet and simple.
