Simple Baby Jesus Ornaments

Last Christmas the girls and I made peanut baby Jesus ornaments. They truly are simple and easy to make. The girls loved to make them. Jilian even made an extra one for her Papa (Jeremy's dad) as a Christmas gift. He loved it so much he got tears in his eyes...ahh...

Supplies:

Egg carton
Scissors
Permanent marker
Felt
Thread
Needle
Peanuts
Hot glue


Cut the egg carton to create a "bassinet"


Add eyes with the permanent marker


Hot glue the peanut baby Jesus inside the bassinet. Cut a piece of felt small enough to fit over the peanut as a blanket, hot glue in place. Add the thread to each side of the bassinet to create a loop to hang the ornament.


Jilian's on her tree this year



Grace decided to make a Mary with her baby Jesus
