DIY Stained Glass Nativity Ornament
What you need:
Print the template by clicking on the image below.
What to do:
Glue 2 mini popsicle sticks to a regular popsicle stick. Make an arch by gluing 2 mini popsicle sticks together. Glue the 2 pieces together to form a stable.
Paint the stable brown. Allow to dry completely.
While the stable dries, download the Nativity silhouette template above. Print and cut out. Set aside.
Rip tissue paper into small pieces.
Cut a piece of contact paper a little larger than the size of the stable. Cover the sticky part of the contact paper with the tissue paper. Cut a second piece of contact paper a little larger than the size of the stable and cover the tissue paper. Press out any bubbles. Cut the contact paper into the shape of the stable.
Glue the silhouette onto the contact paper mosaic. Glue the contact paper onto the back of the stable.
Glue a small piece of twine to the top of the ornament for hanging on a Christmas tree.
Look at how beautiful it looks on the tree at night!
Your stained glass nativity ornament is finished. These would make wonderful family keepsake gifts!
