A lot of people like to display their nativity scenes inside their home.
A DIY option
One way to do this is by gathering and setting up a nativity scene display yourself.
This can be done by placing the nativity scene figures on a table or shelf and setting them up yourself. This way, there is a little more personalization for you to choose exactly what style of figurines you like and how exactly you want them set up! Plus, it will be fun to search for the ones that will fit your style perfectly.
Another DIY option
If you want to be creative, you can make your own nativity scene figures out of clay, wood, or even paper mache. There are plenty of tutorials online that can show you how to do this.
Or, you can purchase a ready-made nativity scene at a home goods store. The home goods store sells them in all different sizes and materials. You can find nativity scenes made out of wood, resin, ceramic, and even metal. They come in all different price ranges as well, so you can find one that fits your budget.
Instructions to make an indoor nativity scene:
- Pick a place in your home to set up the nativity scene. This could be on a table, shelf, or even the floor.
- Choose the nativity scene figures you want to use. You can either purchase these or make your own!
- Place the figures in the desired location and arrange them however you like.
- Add any additional decorations, such as lights, garland, or a star on top.
DoorFotos are also a great way to display your nativity scene indoors!

Some people prefer to display their nativity scene outdoors too. This is a great way to share your holiday spirit with your neighbors and passersby! You can either search for a nativity scene already made or make your own.
One popular way to do this is by setting up a nativity scene in your front yard. If you purchase one at the store, make sure it is weather resistant so that it can withstand the elements. These will also come in different sizes and materials as well, so make sure you find the best one for you!
Live nativity scene
Another fun way to display your nativity scene outdoors is by setting up a live nativity scene. This involves getting real animals and people to dress up and play the parts of Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus. This is a great way to get involved in your community and spread some holiday cheer!
To create an outdoor nativity scene DIY style, you will need to purchase at a store or make weather-resistant figurines. So you don't have to search on your own, here are some good weather-resistant materials you can use: ceramic, resin, and metal. You can also use real plants and trees to add a natural touch to your scene. Just make sure that the plants are nativity scene appropriate!
Find a level spot
Whether you decide to purchase a nativity scene or make one on your own, either way, you will also need to find a level spot in your yard to set it up. Once you have all of your materials, you can set up your nativity scene however you like!
Instructions to make an outdoor nativity scene:
- Find a level spot in your yard to set up your nativity scene.
- Gather all of your outdoor nativity scene figures and think about how you want them set up.
- Add real plants and trees for a natural touch, making sure they are nativity scene appropriate.
- Once you have all of your materials and your layout decided, set up your nativity scene however you like!
Since DoorFotos are machine washable and made from athletic fabric, this means they are safe to go on outside doors as well.
You could have this "Nativity Scene Door Hanger" inside for example, for a more delicate feel, and this "Nativity Scene Door Cover" on your front door facing outside, so the eyes of your neighbors will be caught by its bold colors!
And if for some reason any of our nativity scene designs don't fit your style, you could always send us your own personal image or design and we can make that into a one of a kind DoorFoto for you!
Signs or Paintings
If a whole nativity scene setup isn't really your thing, or if you want to add a little something extra, you could always make or purchase nativity scene-themed signs or paintings!
You could put a sign up in your front yard, on your porch, or even inside your home. These are a great way to add a personal touch to your holiday decor.
If you want to make your own nativity scene sign, all you need is a piece of wood, some paint, and a stencil or design. You could even add some lights to make it stand out more! Then just simply draw a nativity scene yourself to make the sign.
Another way to add a nativity scene touch to your home is by adding paintings. These could be paintings that you made yourself or purchased from a store.
Nativity scenes make for great paintings because they are full of meaning and usually have very bright and bold colors. They are also a great conversation starter, so if you have guests over during the holidays, they will be sure to ask about your nativity scene painting!
So there are lots of different ways that you can add nativity scene decorations to your home, both inside and outside! We hope this has given you some inspiration and that you find the perfect way to display your nativity scene this holiday season. Merry Christmas!
