Wood Grain Nativity Set at GingerSnapCrafts.com

handmade nativity

A few month’s ago I made some fall blocks, & I loved the contrast of the white vinyl & the stained wood. I thought it would be beautiful as a nativity set. Plus this is sooooo easy to make! It would make a wonderful Christmas gift. I gave this set to my sister. :)

You’ll need a few supplies to get started:
white vinyl
some of these nativity figures
sand paper
MinWax Wood Finish ~ Special Walnut
rubber gloves
foam brush
old rag

nativity supplies

First you’ll cut & stain your wood. I just used 2x4s & a few scrap pieces for my blocks. Then I stained my wood using the wood stain & foam brush. Wipe off the excess stain with a rag. Let dry. Don’t forget to wear your rubber gloves!

Then you’ll cut & apply your vinyl. I did a more detailed tutorial on how to cut & apply vinyl right over {HERE}.

make your own nativity

Then all you have left to do is enjoy your new nativity set. :)

  5. Ginger, you are clearly a PRO at making nativity sets - - but I think the contrast of the white vinyl on the dark stained wood makes this set my absolute favorite! Thanks so much for joining in on the December Silhouette Challenge and Giveaway, and adding so much creativity into the mix.
