I wanted to share a Nativity Cube I made. I saw it about a week ago on Jen Del Muro's blog I ♥ 2 Stamp and fell absolutely in love with it!!!!
I started out with a piece of 4X4 that my husband cut for me. I sanded it and painted it with off white acrylic paint. After the paint dried I sanded the edges to give it a worn look. I took five 1" doll head/knobs and painted them with black acrylic paint. I glued 4 on the bottom for the feet and one on the top. I then gave the whole thing a coat of Mod Podge and let it dry.
While the Mod Podge was drying I picked out my cuts from the Silhouette Studio store. I sized each cut file so that it would fit on to my cube and then cut them out of black vinyl and attached them to each side of the cube. I then went over the whole thing with another coat of Mod Podge. When that coat dried I added some rhinestones to the stars and the knob on the top. I tied a sheer bow around the knob, cut the pine branches out with a Silhouette cut file and glued those on top. Threaded a jingle bell with twine and glued that on for the final touch.
Supplies used: wood 4X4 block - Home Depot; 1" wood doll head/knobs, off white and black acrylic paint, Mod Podge, jingle bell, ribbon - Michaels; black vinyl - Hobby Lobby; rhinestones - Hero Arts; twine - my stash; green card stock; Silhouette Studio cut files.
Thank you Jen for such a fun and beautiful project!!!!!!!
