7 Darling Easy to Make Creche Nativity Sets

DIY Creche Nativity Sets

Wikipedia defines creche as "a group of figures arranged to represent the birth of Jesus Christ".

While researching this article in Google, Pinterest etc. I found the gamut of different kinds of creches from THE absolute simplest way to depict the figures of the holy family to the most splendid and ornate. I learned so much! Hope you enjoy!

This post is about the do-it-yourself kind of creche nativity set, the kind that most people will find easy enough to do. 

Let's start with the simplest:

This is called the minimalist creche nativity scene. How did they turn these into the creche? Click through. It's worth it.

  1. So many adorable creches, made with simple items that still convey what it's about. I have a very old creche but have no idea where it is out in our shed. Not able to get to holiday boxes again.
    Appreciate you finding creches for us to see, did hard work for us. Happy Christmas to you and yours.


So happy you came to visit today. Everyone is so busy but if you would like to leave a note for me, I would love it!!


I am the crafter extraordinaire (on this blog anyway.) I live with my husband, my son, David, in a cozy cape cod style house in Connecticut.
