12 Days of Christmas Crafts - Day 4 - Baby Jesus in the Manger

I saw this years ago in a store somewhere and thought...I could make there.  A few years later and I'm finally making them!

small grapevine wreaths
small wood stars
small wood beads
cream felt
gold paint

I started by drilling a small hole in each star and painting them gold.
Then I wrap the wire around a pencil to make it spiral and attached one side to the wreath.

Once the stars were dry I twisted them onto the middle of the wire in the middle, did another spiral on the other side and attached to the wreath.

Next, I made the Baby Jesus.

This is where things get a little messy!!  I balled up a little bit of the 'straw' and hot glued it onto the wreath.

Then just glue the Baby Jesus in and these are ready to hang on your tree!
