12 Days of Christmas, Day 8, Rustic, Simple Nativity

I have always loved the Nativity or creche, because for me, it is the focus of Christmas.  A restless night of sleep the other night led to this simple idea.

Some reclaimed wood, secured with screws to make the barn and manger,

and a star made from folding ruler pieces was all it took to create a rustic, wall hanging Nativity scene.  I glued the star together with E6000, using rubberbands to hold it together until it dried.

I hot glued a little moss into the manger and added a rolled up piece of burlap and a washer for a baby Jesus.

Most of the pictures do not show baby Jesus--I knew I need a baby and my friend Bliss Ranch gave me the burlap idea.

I love the simplicity of it and the focus on the manger.
