Several years ago, before Juliet was born, I went to a christmas ornament exchange party. One of my coworkers made one of these walnut shell baby Jesus ornaments. I remember thinking it was the cutest thing I had ever seen.
Last Christmas, I tried to track the ornament down (one of my friends got it). She looked through her boxes, but never found it. I was hoping she would email me a photo of it so I could recreate it.
I couldn't remember anything more than the shell part.
I did a search on the internet, but came up with nothing!
Fast forward to this year and I have seen these ornaments pop up on several different blogs. So, following this tutorial, Juliet and I made one together--finally.
I also dug up this vintage book that was Ben's as a child. The illustrations are really beautiful. It's from a series called Arch Books. Baby Born in a Stable .
So, that's it. I'm done with Christmas crafts for you.
Get ready for Valentines day. ;)
