These Stained Glass Nativity Ornaments are such a beautiful craft for the kids to make and hang on the tree. And such a meaningful reminder of the reason for the Season! The great thing about these nativity ornaments is that the Christmas story really shows through because they’re in black silhouettes. So they look so pretty lit up on the tree!
