Four Dos and Don'ts When Creating an Outdoor Nativity Scene

Posted on

Christmas is the perfect time to decorate your property for the season while celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior. Whether you’re hoping to welcome new members to your church’s congregation, or you’re seeking to display your faith in your yard, an outdoor nativity scene is one of the best ways to do so.

At St. Jude Shop, we’re proud to offer the best selection of outdoor nativity sets and seasonal religious supplies that you can find online. In today’s blog, we’re going to discuss several dos and don’ts that you can follow when creating your own nativity scene outside your home or church. These tips will help ensure that your scene looks beautiful and feels meaningful all season long. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have, then shop our store to get started!

Do Make Sure Your Set Is Weatherproof

First and foremost, you need to make sure that your outdoor nativity set is weatherproof. This is especially important if you live in an area that’s prone to unpredictable weather, but it’s something that everyone should be aware of regardless. After all, you don’t want your beautiful nativity scene to be ruined or damaged by a sudden downpour of rain or a blustering snowstorm.

That’s why St. Jude Shop offers premium nativity sets that are specifically designed to be displayed outside. For instance, our 32-inch Outdoor Nativity Set, 12 Piece is made from a fiberglass-resin material that’s supremely resilient. This choice of material doesn’t compromise the quality either — each piece in this gorgeous outdoor nativity set is hand-painted with exquisite detail. From the three wise men to the angel to the donkey, onlookers will surely be impressed by how good this nativity set looks in all types of weather.

Don’t Forget To Secure Your Set

When creating your outdoor nativity scene, it’s also important to make sure that your set is secured, particularly if you anticipate large crowds, small children, or pets that might accidentally knock the figures over. We recommend anchoring your nativity set to the ground with stakes or weights so everything will stay in place.

Securing your nativity set is also crucial to prevent theft. Getting your nativity figures stolen would certainly put a damper on your Christmas spirit, especially since our outdoor nativity sets are so unique and high-quality. St. Jude Shop offers individual nativity figures in case you do need to replace part of your display, but the best solution is to set up cameras or some kind of security measure to deter theft in the first place.

Do Consider the Size of Your Set

Another aspect of creating an outdoor nativity scene that you should consider is the size of your set. You want to make sure it’s big enough so onlookers can share in your faith from a distance, but not so big that it’s overwhelming.

Luckily, St. Jude Shops sells outdoor nativity sets in a wide variety of sizes, so you can find the one that’s perfect for your space. For a Christmas display that’s truly striking, check out our life-size nativity set! These figures reach up to 72 inches in height, providing a truly immersive experience that will make you feel like the birth of our Lord is unfolding right in front of you.

If you want an outdoor nativity set that’s a little more subdued, we have plenty of those as well. From 20-inch nativity sets to 32-inch figures and more, we have everything you need to decorate your home or church for the season.

Don’t Forget the Details

It’s easy to get caught up in the frantic energy of the holiday season, but don’t forget to pay attention to the little things! When it comes to creating the perfect outdoor nativity scene, every detail matters. Take some time to add lights, ornaments, greenery, and other festive touches around your nativity scene to really make it stand out.

Our collection of advent and Christmas decorations contains figurines, wreaths, yard art, and more, all of which serve as amazing complements to your outdoor nativity scene. Feel free to combine different design elements in a way that matches your personal style, but don’t go too overboard. Remember the meaning behind Christmas and arrange your display in a way that always highlights the birth of Jesus Christ.

We hope these tips will be helpful once it’s time to set up your outdoor nativity scene for the end of the year. For full outdoor nativity sets, individual nativity figures, or any other Christmas decorations, shop online at St. Jude Shop today!
