I know, I know…I’m supposed to be taking a break. (I did say “more or less”, but I digress) I had to show you guys this little Graham cracker Nativity that I made-usually I do a little cottage/country scene, and so when I announced something else was in the works there were audible gasps from almost everyone in the room.


Anyway, I had so much fun making this little scene, and thanks to my mom for buying the colored tootsie rolls, they made it so much easier! (I nuked them in the microwave for a few seconds at a time to make them more pliable.)

I think the kings were my favorites to make!

I first saw the idea on Pinterest, here is the original post.ย 

I wish I’d thought to get coconut and dye it yellow for hay, but alas I didn’t. So they are literally in the “dirt”.


Well, just had to pop in and share this, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, again!
