How to Make a Felt Nativity Scene
This felt nativity scene was really easy to make! Since the shapes are silhouette, cutting them out is easy and quick.
Materials Needed to Make a Felt Nativity Scene
- Felt. Wool felt is lovely, but if you are looking to save money I also recommend this polyester felt.
- Sharp scissors – otherwise cutting the felt will drive you crazy! These Ghinger sewing shears are an investment, but mine have lasted since 1998 without any issues.
- Felt board. Follow the tutorial for the felt board featured above, or try making a simple hoop felt board. In either case, I recommend using fleece rather than felt for the actual board. It is nice and stretchy so you can get a snug fit, and felt sticks to it beautifully. There are also some great felt boards you can buy, such as:
