With all the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, it's easy to forget the holiday's true meaning. A nativity scene helps to bring it back into perspective.
The 14 figures are printed on weather-resistant poster paper with waterproof, "sunfast" inks that resist fading.
To build the display, just glue the posters onto plywood, cut the figures out and paint the edges and backs. Let them dry, then make stakes or stands from the remaining plywood. A coat of polyurethane sealer is recommended for greater protection against the elements.
The Nativity Scene, No. 7, is $45.95 and includes posters for all 14 figures. Bring the holiday spirit indoors with a plan for a Table-top Nativity, No. 884, available for $9.95. Allow about four weeks for delivery (for rush delivery, add $1 per item up to $3 maximum and allow about two weeks).
