Quick, Easy and Low Cost Nativity Magnet Craft

7:49 PM

This is perfect for neighbor presents. I made eight sets of nativity magnets, and did it all under five dollars. If your wanting to focus your Christmas and gift giving toward the baby Jesus instead of Santa, this is a great solution. Its like your your own little nativity set just for your fridge, who wouldn't love that!

I've also included a free printable to make it even easier for you to make these. 
Nativity Magnet Printable

Clear or green flat gems (found at dollar store)
Printable printed
Glue gun

Follow these simple and fast steps...
1. Use the clear gem magnets to trace and cut out the printable images
2. Then glue each nativity image to the back of the clear flat gems
3. When your finished gluing all the images to the clear gems, its time to hot glue the magnets to the back of the imaged gems. Then your done!

Hope you have fun with this, and may we all remember the real reason for the season.
