How to make it

  1. Away in a Manger: Frankincense and More - Step 1

    Wise Men Gifts:
    Metallic beads (1/2- to 3/4-inch) make perfect gifts. Thread a 2-inch piece of skin-colored pipe cleaner through the bead and then the hand loops. Twist the ends to secure.

  2. Away in a Manger: Frankincense and More - Step 2

    Wise Men's Crowns:

    Wrap one end of a sparkly gold pipe cleaner around a Wise Man's head to gauge the circumference, remove it, and twist to secure the circle. Zigzag and twist the rest of the pipe cleaner to form the crown shape. Trim the excess.

  3. Away in a Manger: Frankincense and More - Step 3

    Shepherd's Headband:

    Wrap a piece of pipe cleaner around the shepherd's head to size. Remove the pipe cleaner, twist the ends to secure, and form a ring.

  4. Shepherd's Staff:

    Fold a pipe cleaner in half and twist the whole length. Curve the folded end. Slip the staff through one of the loop hands.
