Nativity scene-DIY

Hello friends

We are back with a recycled project based on Christmas. So we came up with a tutorial on making a Nativity scene as Christmas is approaching, what could be more appropriate.

Christmas-Nativity scene

Nativity Scene

Materials used-
Christmas bell -2 (2.5 inch long)
Fevicryl Shilpkar clay-1 
Fevicryl acrylic paints
Aluminium foil
Ice-cream sticks
Glue gun
Old Cardboard


Mix the two parts of the Shilpkar clay to form a even colored clay.
 Take 2 big parts from the clay mixture for making shawl, 2 small parts for head, 2 small parts for hands and keep the remaining aside.
With the big part, make flat circle with old cardboard roll just like you make chapathis. This will form the shawl.
Take some aluminum foil and crush it to form round shape for the head, cover the foil ball with Shilpkar clay. Repeat the same process to get 2 big heads and 1 small head for baby Jesus.

Make hands for Joseph and Mary, stick with help of fevicol or glue gun for sturdiness. Cut an old pen refill into 3 inch length, this will form the stick for Joseph. Place the stick in his right hand.
With remaining clay, roll them into long thin rolls to form hair.
Now assemble the head, hair, hands and shawl and stick with fevicol.
Moving to baby Jesus, make shawl just like you did above. Take the remaining clay and make cylindrical shape for the body, stick the head to body and then cover with shawl. 
With some cardboard and ice-cream sticks, make  a shed.
Take some jute cord, wrap it around the ice-cream stick box (as shown in the pic) to form the barn where the baby is placed.
Let them dry.

Baby Jesus, ain't it cute!!!

Now paint everything white with acrylic paint. Let it dry.
Now paint with colors of your choice.
Add a star on top of shed.

Close up of Nativity scene

Give them a coat of varnish if you desire.
Ta da.... our Nativity scene is done.
Hope you like it. 
Do give it a try and let us know how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by.
