Make your Nativity Wreath
- Rip fabric into strips about If you haven’t ripped fabric before, all you have to do is make a small cut in the fabric where you want your rip line to be, then hold the fabric firmly on either side of the cut and tear apart. Pull the extra threads off the edges.
- Joseph: (straight wooden body)
Put a small line of hot glue on the body, stick an end of the fabric strip to the glue, then wrap the fabric around. Fold the edge of the fabric back and put small dots of hot glue to hold it in place. Make the sash with a strip of fabric about Tie around and use a small dab of glue to secure.
- Mary: (dress-shaped body)
Use two pieces of fabric about. Layer the fabric pieces on top of each other to make a double thickness. Fold the top 1/3″ of the fabric back and place the body in the center of the strip. Wrap the strip around the body to form a V neck. The fabric will be handing off the bottom of the wood. Secure with a few dabs of hot glue. When the glue is cool, trim the fabric along the bottom of the wood.
- Baby Jesus:
Using a 3.5″ x 3.5″ piece of fabric, wrap the baby swaddle style. Secure with glue.
- Glue Mary and Joseph to the hoop with hot glue. Put more hot glue toward the base of the hoop to help them stand up straight and not lean with the angle of the hoop. Let the glue dry completely.
- Attach the baby with glue.
- Hang using a strip of fabric.
- Use a safety pin on the back to hang.
