Baby Jesus Ornament
This past week we made super simple baby Jesus tree ornaments.
Here's what you'll need to make one:
A small paper plate
Simple drawing of a face (resembling a baby as much as you can artistically accomplish)
Christmas Bible verse sticker, or you can write the verse on the front or back of the ornament (We used Isaiah 9:6)
~Punch a hole in the top of the plate with your hole puncher.
~Fold the bottom of the paper plate about 1/3 of the way up.
~Fold both sides in and staple the folded sides down.
~Glue the baby Jesus' face near the top of the plate so that Jesus looks tucked in swaddled clothes.
~Pull your yarn/string through the hole punched into the top of the plate and tie at the top.
~Place your Bible verse sticker on the ornament or write the Bible verse on the back of the ornament
I got to make this ornament with my son and had a blast with him and all the other children. I was delighted when my daughter also got to make one in her class during Sunday school. My heart melted when she came running out of the class carrying her ornament saying "Wook, Baby Jesus!"
