In the midst of the Christmas decorating frenzy, lets not forget what Christmas is all about….
Today’s little Christmas craft brings you a homemade nativity silhouette.
Simple white sandwich bags from the grocery store got turned into nativity silhouette candles.
I found some great silhouettes on You Seriously Made That . I tried printing them straight onto the sandwich bags but the paper didn’t take the ink very well. So instead I printed them on regular paper cut them to size, slid them in the bag and traced. Coloring them in with a black sharpie took me straight back to my childhood years. Although I never was the kind of kid who would draw all the time, I didn’t have time then, there were too many books to read.
I filled the bags with some sand to give them a bit of stability and a bottom, and cut them to size with craft scissors. And for safety I used battery powered candles.
I love how this turned out.
So far the easiest Christmas decoration I did this year. And yet the most meaningful.
