Christmas In July!

Isn't that the cutest Nativity you've ever seen??? 
A friend invited me to do a "Christmas In July" mini Art Camp at her new church. I had done this theme  before and it is so much fun. It's 94 degrees outside and we are inside listening to Christmas music ( singing along), having cookies and milk and creating an adorable Nativity to enjoy in a few short months! It's so much fun to do this now before the hustle and bustle of the school year and holidays hits!! We took our time and had a great time!
We used a 5 inch clay saucer and 3 small terra cotta pots and 3 wooden beads to make our Nativity. The rest was just scraps of fabric and odds and ends of paint that we had on hand. The star is a small wooden shape that we painted and glued to a wire. We curled the wire a bit and glued it to the saucer. It's so fun - you have to have the star!!
Only 167 days until Christmas :) !!
