Make a Nativity!

Nativity People

There are lots of ways that you can make a little Nativity scene. Some are simple and some are much more complex. This one is really easy. We based our design on this spool Nativity, but used slightly different materials.

Nativity People Pieces

The bodies are just doll pegs in two sizes (we got them at Hobby Lobby). They are wrapped in scraps of cloth and secured with a bit of hot glue. Mary and Joseph have head coverings that are glued to their heads, and Joseph has a ribbon tie. Super simple! (Though not quite as simple as this set.)

The faces are left blank, because we rather like that aesthetic, but you could easily paint faces on.

Have fun!
