Nativity Show & Tell

9 Dec

I’m excited about Kerry Todd’s link-up to keep us focused on the REASON for the season! I love Kerry’s  meaningful story behind her Nativity from Haiti, so be sure to check it out and share yours, too!

My Nativity scene is something new this year! I ran across this idea online in January and couldn’t wait to make it to display this Advent and Christmas season! It is made with three 7.5 x 7.5 inch glass blocks (available at Michaels or Hobby Lobby), wired ribbon, white lights, and custom black vinyl from Vinyl Gifts and More.

Here is the set…

Who doesn’t love more lights?!

The vinyl was pretty easy to apply! I had never done it before. I used my old driver’s license that I just renewed to help transfer and it worked really well.

I used a strand of 35 lights that cost $2.99 at Hobby Lobby. I think 25-strand lights would work, as well. They cost $1.99.

I tied a big bow on top and then tied a second ribbon and bow around that one to make it look fuller on top.

I love the warm glow that this adds to my living room!

Hmmm… I wonder what some of my family and friends are getting for Christmas? :)

I hope you are having a joy-filled Advent! Have a great week!
