There have been a lot of photos on the Net referring to a manger as a king-sized bed.
It was a simple Christmas project,starting out with some stir sticks and toothpick.
First the frame, 4 sticks and a toothpick.
Note: the sticks forming the x shapes were not thick enough,so extra strips were added
This is a picture of the finished manger, painted a Dresden blue and dry brushed with tan.
The base was cut to fit into this container, from the grocery store.
The finished project...
