Nativity ornament

Can you tell I have been in a “since these supplies are out, what else can I use?” state of mind the past couple of weeks? Last week it was felt, this week’s supply bin of choice is wood.

Were I to buy the materials for this, I would get a smaller star and clothespins with the truly round heads, but I was going with what I had on hand. A small handsaw cut the legs off of the one clothespin easily, but I did turn on the drill press to make the holes in the star. What’s the point of having the power tools if you don’t use them?

This little project is a nativity ornament, but it could also be cute for a couple with a new baby, swapping out the star for a heart.
