Wooden Nativity Scene Blocks

34,878 Views
You will love this amazing primitive farmhouse nativity scene! And you can totally DIY it! No vinyl cutter needed!
Time: 1 Hours Cost: $15 Difficulty: Easy
First, print out the PDF files from Lori Whitlock.
Next, cut out each piece inside of the black line so it doesn't show.
Cut a 2x4 into blocks.
Spray paint all of the blocks white.
Mod Podge the print outs to the blocks and allow them to dry completely. Don't worry about the lines in the Mod Podge. We will sand them out in the next step.
After the Mod Podge has dried sand the edges of the blocks and along the edges of the print outs where the paper meets the block.  This will give them the primitive look and not make it look like you glued a piece of paper to a block ;)
Now time for the antiquing.  I used a dark walnut stain, but any brown or black stain you have on hand will work.  Lightly rub some of the stain on the face of the blocks and then take a clean rag and rub off the excess.  This will give the block its antique look.
Then stack them up anyway you like!

    Amazing and beautiful! And yes, Liz, if your grandchildren are like mine they like to touch & play with the nativity scene and this is perfect. They get to learn who each person is and where they go etc. I love it! Merry Christmas!
