This ornament has a little more detail to it. You can also use this ornament as a stand alone feature on your table or shelf. Lets get to the steps.
This is what you will need:
35 Popsicle sticks (give or take)
Hot glue gun
2 wooden figurines (I got mine from the craft and wood section at Hobby Lobby)
Round wooden balls (also Hobby Lobby)
Acrylic paint (color of your choice)
Paint or felt brush
Ivory or White colored felt
Burlap type material or color of your choice
Glitter card stock
Twine or string
Step 1: Paint all of the pieces for your stable and your figurines. Let dry.
Step 2: Start to build your 3D stable.
-Start by placing one flat stick horizontally on a flat surface.
-At the corners, where the sticks meet, glue two sticks vertically on each end.
-Continue to glue on top of each other until you have seven layers (#3).
Now for the roof:
- Between each of the seven layers, glue 2 sticks in a diagonal form as shown in picture 4. Your completed stable should look something like this:
Excuse my hot glue cobwebs!
Step 3: Dress up your figurines. Use whatever materials that you would like to use in order to get the look that you want. Also, glue your star in place..
Step 4: Glue your figurines into the stable and your done! Hang your ornament on your tree by looping and tying twine/string together, or just let it stand alone. Send us your pics of your creations. We would love to praise and post your flow! Merry Christmas!
