A great looking outdoor Nativity display that won't break the bank--because it is made entirely of wood salvaged from old shipping pallets!!
Using wood from recycled pallets just makes sense...not only do you save money making this great looking display but you also help the environment by saving trees and keeping used pallets out of landfills.
Plans include full-size patterns and step-by-step instructions to make your own pallet wood Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus plus the Stable and Star. All can be painted using color washes that show off the unique character of the pallet boards or simply solid colors.
Project uses four of our 24 mm plastic clear eyes (Item #PE146). (Stable measures 72" tall to the top of the Star, Joseph stands 42" tall)
NOTE: Pine boards or low-cost fence boards can also be used to make this fun project in lieu of salvaged pallet boards.
4 or 5 standard wood pallets
