How to Set up the Nativity Basket
Basket – large enough to hold the nativity scene
Gold or Yellow Thread
4 Twist Ties
Take 4 twist ties and wrap gold or yellow thread around them.
Fold over corners to keep thread on.
Twist one of the twist ties over the other, like a letter V.
Fold one side down to now look like a cross.
Twist another one around the first two.
Do one more to look like this.
Glue the star on top of basket. Add gold or yellow thread to the bottom of the basket.
