Willow Tree (style) Manger scene

My daughter collects Willow Tree figurines and wanted the manger for Christmas. I looked at it in the store and decided that this was something I could make her. A little time was all I needed, I had all the material on hand in the form of SCRAP or should I say left over material. Hopefully she will be happy with it.

All comments are welcome. Thanks for looking!

Very nice project. I’m sure your daughter loves it, because you made it. It is also better than a store-bought version.

I bet yours is built way better than the store model- and she will treasure this one because Dad made it. :)
