This display contains pieces from the YonderStar 27" scale Full Color Joseph's Studio Outdoor Nativity and an electrified stable on casters for easy display and assembly / disassembly.
Here is what our friends who put together this remarkable structure have to say about it:
"Here are some pics of our Nativity we created. The creche is made from western red cedar and ceramic floor tiles. The structure is assembled using joinery and very little hardware so it can be disassembled and reassembled each year. It is mounted on casters so it can be wheeled into place. I used LED lighting and the little lanterns on the front are flickering candle bulbs. The lighting is photostatically controlled to come on at dusk and extinguish at dawn. Our Nativity has been a real inspiration not only to us, but to our neighbors as well. Merry Christmas."

A nativity putz is a traditional Christmas village display and is traditionally found in a place of prominence in a home - often times on a mantle or under a Christmas tree. Using a wooden hutch for the village display adds a magical quality to the scene, and is a great use of space! This display uses Fontanini nativity figures, and a lot of special touches to make it just right.
Here is what our friends who created this terrific display have to say about it:
"Thank you for helping us make our annul “Nativity Putz” a joy to share with family and friends! I made the “house” and the “temple” from styrofoam packing materials and wood scraps. In recent years we've started collections for our two daughters and their families and our youth pastor and his family. Have a Blessed Christmas. Some years, we use soft colors of netting fabric for the “sky” on each level, with small lights behind the netting. Several years ago we had four levels, with the top level representing “heaven” with the risen Christ in the company of numerous angels. We enjoy it so. Thank you again, for your help over the years; allowing us to add to our collection and purchase pieces for our family. "
