I have always wanted to find a mid sized nativity scene to place in our home for Christmas. During Thanksgiving I picked up this nativity that my mother-in-law had packed away for years which was perfect for a makeover. It was the perfect size, but the colors felt out of place in our home. There is nothing a little paint can’t fix! I pulled out some white chalk paint I had laying around, and one coat later it went from this…
…to this! The nativity scene now perfectly ties in with our home, and I am head over heels in love with the more simplified look.
Add in some Spanish and preserved moss (both found at my local craft store) to extend the floor of the manger and to soften the transition.
Do you have a nativity in need of a quick makeover? You still have time to bust this project out!
