UH-HUH! You heard right, I made a creche display from a pizza box. The box is from a pizza I bought at the grocery store-ha!
It already had the arched cutout. I immediately thought of the manger scene and covered it with Christmas wrapping paper.
All the little creche figures are ones I purchased at the dollar store, $1.00 for the set a few years ago.
>I put colored paper inside the bottom of the box and then raffia for anchoring the figures.
>I poked a hole in the back and hung the angel with thread under her wings and back through the hole.
>The candles are from the dollar store also and work on 2 AA batteries.
>The cow and donkey under the creche were odd pieces I found over the years.
This project took about 15 minutes - tops! It makes a cute little display on the bookcase near the front door. Can you think of any other way you could use the Pizza box?? Maybe a fireside Santa scene? Or your children could draw figures and cut them out. Then paste to the back of the box.....
If you make one of these, please send me a picture to feature, I would love that!
My heart to yours...
