I'm not a very creative person, usually, but I thought this one up all on my own - no pinterest, no blog, just my own head. :)
We have been collecting toilet paper tubes, recently. Not for any reason, just to have them in case we wanted to make something with them. Well, today I thought of that "something" we could make.
First, we covered the tubes with construction paper.
Next, we printed off pictures of Mary, Joseph, wise men, and shepherds from the internet. The Mary image we printed out had her holding Jesus in her arms, but Lilly didn't like that. She wanted Jesus lying in the manger. So, we made our own Mary and our own Jesus.
Then, we glued the print-outs to the tubes.
Voila - a cute little homemade nativity set! :)
