Inspired by the Lord, this fun Christmas yard project started with a rough sketch and ended up a masterpiece! Check out the photos below to see the steps of making a custom nativity scene and see the build process of this unique manger set.

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” – Luke 10-12

1. Sketching out the vision..

2. Going digital with crisp lines and final design tweaks…

3. Final artwork ready for projection transfer…

4. Projection of design onto sheet of plywood…

5. Smoothly tracing around each edge…

6. Tediously cutting shapes out of the plywood…

7. A quick mock set up to admire the work in progress…

8. Rolling on the paint for some weatherproofing…

9. Another brief set up to see if everything looks good together…

(after this stage was the creation of the plastic, gold crown and installation of u-clamps along with metal pipes to anchor pieces into the ground…sorry, no photos were taken at those times)

10. Installed in front yard and added flood light for final presentation!
