Handmade Christmas Gift Ideas - Printable Nativity

This lovely silhouette of a Nativity scene can be printed and framed for a quick and easy last minute gift. This is the next to the last post in our series (9/21-12/24) of handmade Christmas gift ideas.

Jen, at MyOwnRoad, shares this tutorial at this link. You can scroll down to the three differently colored versions of this silhouette. Just click and save the one you want to print.

However, be sure to read her post. She explains where she found this design and how she prepared it. You might want to go to the site she mentions and download the other beautiful graphics there, and create your own.

Either way, it is surely one of the quickest gifts you can make at this stage of the gift-giving season.

And, it surely fits with the "reason for the season."

Then, print it on either plain paper, colored paper, or even cardstock. Frame it quickly with a dollar store bargain frame.

I found this in my daily e-newsletter from CraftGossip.

For other projects in my series, just look along the right sidebar for the label "Christmas Gift Projects." I hope to post only tips that do not require knitting, crocheting, machine sewing, tatting, embroidery, or any other skilled technique.

If you are feeling too crushed for time to make your own gifts this season, check my Etsy shop for items for your gift list.
