You will need six Popsicle sticks. 2 need to be cut in half – one needs to be cut at the 3/4 area. Precision is not necessary and this is a really great project to do with kids. 2 of the halves are used for the sides. 2 of the halves make up Joseph and Mary. The 1/4 cut is used for baby Jesus and the 3/4 is used for the Angel. Attach with hot glue or Elmers glue. Paint using the picture above as a guide using tempura paint. The little finishing touch on the front is made from slivers from a Popsicle stick and some taffeta.
