Y’all know I collect nativity scenes, right? Well, this year I made some of the easiest ones I’ve ever made! I used some of my Christmas stencils to create a simple nativity scene Christmas sign. I used the same stencil and board to make all of these in a variety of paint and stain colors. I’d love to know which one you liked the best. (I’ll give you a hint, too… all of them sold EXCEPT the red one.)

How to Make a Nativity Scene Sign
- 1″ x 4″ board cut into pieces
- nativity stencil – I used the 5″ x 11″ but it comes in a lot of sizes!
- washi tape
- leftover paints and stains from other projects
- stencil brush
It didn’t take much paint at all so I just used leftovers from all my other DIY and craft projects this fall.
Since this is a pretty basic DIY project and it’s easier to show you than to tell you, I did a Facebook Live. It will show after a short commercial. (Which helps support my blog so thank you for your patience!)
Now for close ups of all the variations I made. Leave a comment and let me know which is your favorite. This one used dark walnut stain and white chalky finish paint.
This sign used green stain and the same white paint.
Then I went to a drastic color combination and used black and white. Some had black backgrounds with white nativity scenes…
…and others had white background with black nativity scenes.
This next color combination was the only one I didn’t like, so I only made one. And guess what was the ONE that didn’t sell in all my fall/holiday shows? Yep! I guess no one else liked this shade of red either. Next year I’m going to do a darker shade of red that will blend in better with my vintage style Christmas decorations.
