  • 8 craft sticks
  • cardboard
  • rosemary
  • twine/string
  • hot glue/ craft glue
  • marker
  • scissors
  • glitter


  • glue craft sticks - we glued the top and bottom separately and then attached the two. An adult can use hot glue for this part if desired.

  • cut out an oval and star shape from cardboard
  • paint a white cloth around the oval and draw a face to make baby Jesus
  • spread white glue over the star (we used our finger) and sprinkle glitter on top
  • while white paint is drying, glue two sprigs of rosemary to make the manger
  • tie twine around the top of the stable
  • use glue to attach baby Jesus and the star 
  • once dry, hang your gorgeous ornament on your tree!
