Nativity Berry

Nativity Berry - silk and linen

Nativity Berry

The Holy Family on a holy night, surrounded by stars and some of the traditional nativity creatures, either will do nicely as an ornament for your tree, wreath and other holiday d├ęcor. I used felted wool to cap both berries, adding custom straight pins and/or tiny brass star charms.

Silk and linen berries are sold separately.
