King Sized Bed

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.

Once the basic frame is dry,it is easy to fill in the sides.
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 beside it was started using the video below

The base was cut to fit into this container, from the grocery store.

The finished project...
