Christmas in a nutshell

3 Baby Jesuses

I found this sweet tutorial a couple weeks ago, and knew right away I wanted to make this one with my sons :)

Baby Jesuses in nutshells

We had alot of fun just trying to crack the walnuts in half without completely smashing the shells :)

Christmas in a nutshell
When I pulled out my craft supplies, I barely had any white felt.  My first thought was 'Oh no!' but almost immediately I thought 'Who says Baby Jesus wore white?'  Personally, I think orange is his color  :-)

One important lesson I have learned during these crafts - one of each tool isn't enough.  While forced to wait for brothers to finish up, little boys with four extra {googlie}eyes stuck to their foreheads will complain they are bored.

{I see a trip to the craft store in my future}
I will be linking up to these fine linky parties:
Happy Hour Friday; Petals to Picots; Do Something Crafty & Friday Fun Party @ Craftionary
