Wooden spoon nativity King
All these festive crafts have put us in a very festive mood! If I could I would be putting my tree up tomorrow, though I don’t think my other half would be on board quite yet! Christmas is getting closer and closer though and nativities are a big theme in our family right now with all the small people practising songs and waiting to hear what they are going to be dressing as! Hence the inspiration for this super cute wooden spoon nativity king!
You will need
A wooden spoon Popsicle stick Red and yellow foam 2 googly eyes Pencil and Pens Yarn/string Glue gun Scissors
Take your lollipop stick and place it horizontally across the neck of your spoon to create your king’s arms
Place your wooden spoon onto your chosen material. Take your pencil and draw your robe shape around you spoon. Make sure you robe is atleast half a cm wider than your Spoon king in all places so that you can easily glue both sides together. Cut out your shape and then use it as a template to make a second side of robe.
Take one piece of your robe and place a strip of glue from the armpit to the bottom on each side then stick the other side of your robe down on it in place. Once dry, slip your wooden spoon down inside the robe as in the picture above and then glue the two sides of arms together around the popsicle stick.
To give your king some hair; cut out some lengths of string and glue them in place around your spoon. For the beard; draw a little mouth on your king’s face and circle it in glue, then take a length of string and spiral it around the mouth starting inwards and finishing outwards.
To Finish your king, give him two eyes, a nose and a royal crown. Then decorate his robe with your favourite embellishments! we went with royal jewels and we think they look fab!
