Baby Jesus Ornaments

I saw some really cute baby Jesus ornaments posted here and loved them!  I am trying not to buy anything, so I wanted to use what I had.  I bought these four gold vine nests at Salvation Army this summer, for a quarter each.  I knew I would do something with them eventually and that time has come!
I made mine a bit differently...I used vintage silver pipe cleaners to create the stars on one end of the pipe cleaners.  I attached the other end of the pipe cleaners to the nest underneath the head of Baby Jesus. 
The only thing that I purchased was the half ball wooden pieces and they were a quarter each too.  I painted them light flesh color and used a paint marker to make the eyes.
I used bleached muslin for the swaddling.  They look really sweet on the tree!
I am thinking these would look good as package decorations too!
