Make your own nativity set


When I was little, I was really intrigued by nativity sets. Because of that I often made my own set!
I thought it would be fun to craft my own set. And why not share it? You can do this yourself or let your kids (5+) get crafty.

All you have to do is download the PDF below, print it on paper and get cutting and glueing!

I created this set back in 2012 and it has been downloaded over 65.000(!) times all over the world. It has been featured on many blogs, for which I’m grateful. If you want to feature this set on your website, blog or in a magazine, please read the FAQ below.
