Cute Christmas Nativity Set for Kids with Stickers!


     Make your own Nativity with these adorable Stickers! I love nativity sets and I especially love unique ones that children can play with. A great nativity DIY is the best. I have loads of these stickers available in my ETSY shop to purchase. Then you can make your own wood nativity set...or put them on magnets, paper, or any other surface. This post is updated from 2012.

Nativity Stickers

Walnut Stain

   

Supplies Needed for Folded Paper Nativity:

White Cardstock Paper
Paper Cutter
Nativity Stickers


 
These stickers are not my designs or images, they are Me and My Big Ideas...but they are very hard to find...and are super popular! Really, they are so cute!  I have several of this sticker set for anyone interested in my Etsy Shop!
     
To make the cute Christmas Nativity set from wood blocks, cut and sand the wood pieces. Then paint the top surface of the blocks with white paint. Let it dry and then use a cloth or brush and stain the edges of the wood with walnut stain. Let the stain dry completely.
     
After the blocks are dry, then stick the nativity stickers on the tops of the blocks. Spray the blocks with clear spray and let dry. That's it!
     
Great for little hands to play with.  It's cartoony and cute.  The shepherd and Kings are cute, I love all the sheep and the Holy Family is lovely...and I love the camels!

Need an easier version for this little nativity!? This one is just as cute and not nearly as much work. Stick the stickers on the bottom edge of the thick cardstock. Space out the pieces so they can be cut.

Then use the paper cutter to cut them into strips. Fold the piece of paper so it centers the stickers on the page, then trim off the extra paper. No measurements needed.
   
With the fold at the top of the stickered paper, the cute Christmas nativity sits upright to display and play with. This could also be laminated for longer lasting use.
   
This cute Christmas nativity is perfect for teaching children the Christmas story. Or if you want to put together your own set... It's the perfect KIDS CRAFT too! Stick to paper, cut out the border, laminate and glue a magnet on the backside. Make a piece of art with a still scene. Mount to Craft Foam and hang a ribbon for an ornament set. So many fun options for this cute little nativity set.
   
The Christmas Story sticker sheet measures: 4 by 6.5".  It has the Holy Family all together on one sticker that would fit on a block measuring 3" by 2". Background of sticker page is clear, so your image looks drawn right on! Perfect for little kids or Christmas gifts!

That's it!

  1. Hi, I am wondering what kind of wood you used for this project, including the dimension of wood you bought? Is it an 8 foot 1x4? Thanks!
