Christmas is by far our favorite time of year for all types of crafts and DIY projects. We try to get started as early as possible so we can fit in lots of Christmas-themed projects. Making these adorable holy family felt Christmas ornaments has been on our list all year. Even better, the pattern is so versatile and usable for many different nativity crafts.

We must admit that we haven’t share nearly enough nativity crafts here as we’d like to. There are so many beautiful, handmade ways to bring the holy family into Christmas decorating. For example:
- crochet an entire nativity set* to play with and display;
- make the cutest walnut shell manger ornament;
- paint some nativity story stones;
- build a cookie jar nativity set; or
- create a pebble art nativity scene*.
To celebrate the season, we’ve designed a set of nativity-themed motifs that are perfect for a variety of nativity crafts. The set of 7 nativity themed patterns includes baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, an Angel and the three Wisemen. There’s also a bonus set in works that’ll include a manger, palm trees, a star, sheep, cow, donkey and camel. They provide a sweet reminder of what the Christmas season is truly all about. Stay tuned for that coming soon!
I look forward to giving these special ornaments to my daughter to keep and hopefully cherish as she gets older. I can already envision her selecting her favorite felt ornament (most likely baby Jesus) as she eagerly hangs them onto the tree. Actually, I think I’ll add them to our DIY advent calendar so she can discover a new one each day. Wouldn’t they make a thoughtful keepsake gift for “baby’s first Christmas” or for a baby’s baptism.
