This is a repost from two years ago…I love these ornaments and have several of them on my tree.
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 unbleached muslin for the swaddling. They look really sweet on the tree and they would also make great package decorations.
I am linking to these great parties!
