A couple of years ago I found this cute little printable Nativity set from catholicicing.com. Since then, this “prized possession nativity scene” finds a spot in our home every Christmas.

As I was setting it out today, it inspired me to look for the source of this DIY nativity set. I was so happy to find it again, so I thought I’d share it with you.


We made our Nativity set using a shoebox for the manager that we covered with a paper bag. I cut out a piece of cardboard for the roofline. My daughter colored the pictures, I cut them out and we glued them to the toilet paper rolls. Simple dimple and it didn’t cost a thing to make.


The original is set up a little differently than ours, use your imagination and make it your own!
