Nativity Lacing Paper Plate craft instructions
First colour and cut out the template. Draw a cute face on Baby Jesus!
Next, cut the inner circle of the paper plate as the picture shows, leaving a couple inches still attached.
Flip this circle upwards and glue the coloured star to it.
Use the hole punch to make a hole at each of the 5 points of the star (through the coloured paper and paper plate)
Lace the yellow yarn through the holes, creating a star pattern. Tie the loose ends at the back to secure.
Next, colour the bottom half of the plate with the brown crayon. Use the hole punch to make holes along the outside and inside edge of the plate (with in the brown area).
Thread the yarn through the holes to create a random pattern that mimics straw. Tie the loose ends at the back to finish.
Create star beams by weaving more yellow yarn, connecting the bottom two points of the star to the top holes of the straw bed.
Glue or tape Baby Jesus to the straw bed and your Nativity lacing paper plate craft is complete!
