Today I wanted to share some more pictures of our DIY jig saw Nativity Blocks.
We always had a glass nativity set growing up. It’s fragile nature resulted in armless wisemen, a half faced Joseph & so forth. Oh, and we always had a tradition of leaving baby Jesus out until Christmas Day when he was born… which resulted in Him getting lost…
It was about time to alter the tradition, in a kid friendly way!
Also, you can see more of my DIY wooden block creations here:
Silas and I made these blocks using a 2×6 board (which is like less than $4 at Lowes or Home Depot) and a simple Jig Saw.
Once we traced & cut out the figures, I painted them with acrylic paint. You can see my basic process with the woodland animal blocks we made HERE.
The kiddos love them so far.
Here are some close ups of all the figurines.
A camel in representation of the wisemen… we kinda got burned out of using the jig saw before we got to them.
Removable baby Jesus, in his manger.
For now we have it on the “Off Limits” shelf (so named because I can never put anything breakable on it or the shelves below due to a certain one year old)

These are adorable! I love the idea of having something that won't break easily if someone knocks into the shelf. Nice work! 😀
pattern? or do I have to draw them myself?
Wow, that’s a great idea! It looks so different to all that mass-produced staff. Like also the way you painted it. And your daughter is so cute =).
Best wishes, eli
I absolutely adore this!
These are so cute! 🙂
Okay. You just need to make and sell these! I love them, but I’m never going to make them…but I WOULD buy them! 😆
These are so adorable!! Would you mind sharing the pattern like you did with your woodland animals?
Yes! I just updated the post with the template! Hope that helps!
