DIY Nativity Ideas

Given that I launched Catholic Icing during the Christmas season, I thought it would be fun to start off with some ideas about keeping Christmas centered where it should be... around Christ! :-)

I found this great photo tutorial over at Holes In My Shiny Veneer for making your own nativity set out of spool dolls! Part one shows how to make the holy family:

Part two goes on to show you how to make the wise men, shepherds, and angel.

I think this set is so cute! This would be a great gift idea to make for a younger child, or a wonderful craft project to do with an older child. Such a fun idea! :-)

I also found this DIY nativity set on Family Fun. It's a little more complicated to make, but is just beautiful! Find the complete directions for this one here.

Here is the link to a free nativity lap book you can print

Make a nativity with these directions from a tea box
over at Sweetness & Light.
