What You Need: Three clay or
plastic pots (the ones pictured above are one 14" and two 18"
plastic pots); three 7"- 8" balls; light brown spray paint;
burlap or other fabric (color of your choice); hay or natural fiber (I
used coconut tree fiber); heavy-duty tape; glue gun;
What You Do: Spray paint
balls, allow to dry. Turn the two large pots upside down. Tape two balls
to the top of each pot. Drape fabric over balls to form veils. Cut two
long strips of fabric to form headbands. Tie headbands to hold veils in
place. Apply hot glue to sides of pot to hold veil (Make sure you don't
touch the balls with the hot glue or they will pop. Unfortunately I can
testify to this!) In the smaller pot fill the bottom with hay or natural
fiber (You can fill the bottom with plastic bags first, and then place the
top). Place the third ball in the smaller pot.
To display at night, attach a star
with lights to a pole and place it behind the nativity. Wrap a string of white
lights one time around the nativity and the rest of the lights around
the top of the manger, "His glory shone round about."
