Photo - Nativity Display

I attended a Nativity Display held by a local church yesterday. These are lent to the church from the congregation and those farther a field.  They were so well displayed with lots of room to have each have it own space.  I so enjoy seeing the variety in materials and design expressed.

The top left is a marquetry piece which is the method of using different colored woods to create a design. Wonderful simple design.  Top right is a corn husk set in a wood stable.  The centre one was quite small and likely made for children. It had 2 navy hearts as the platform and background then fabric and wood for the persons.  Add a glitter star and it's done.  Bottom left is a wonderfully colored resin nativity which was hung on a string.  The bottom right is ceramic in plain white with a matte finish. It is lit from the back.


  1. That is a great idea to have the congregation share their nativity sets. As you've shown, they come in all manner of materials, shapes and sizes. The ceramic set is gorgeous.
    Merry Christmas and thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  2. I think I like the corn husk nativity. Very pretty display. Merry Christmas
