Cinnamon Stick Manger

Here's a sweet little handmade gift a friend gave me this year...a cinnamon stick manger she had made to go with my Willow Tree nativity set.


Isn't it precious?  The cinnamon sticks look just like little logs that are the perfect size and scale to the figurines.

Here are some close-ups so you can see how she hot-glued it all together:

Our nativity is set up on the "hall dresser" right as you come in our entry-way.


Since this spot is usually set up to feature our world travels, I decided to run with the global theme and top off the setting with the beginning of John 3:16.


"For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life."  John 3:16

Jesus, the world map, and our travel art tie together quite nicely.  Don't you think?
