How to build a good Christmas crib

What is most striking in a nativity scene is that the terrain on which all the figures are placed is well constructed and resembles reality. In order to make the ground look as good as possible, it is more convenient to build everything on a large wooden plank. It is also important to respect the dimensions of some objects in relation to others. We cannot build a mountain the same size as a house.

Many people incorporate streams into their nativity scenes. which usually look very good as it gives a touch of reality. To ensure that the water shows some movement and does not appear stagnant, a small water drainage system can be used to transport the water from the end of the course to the beginning.

To decorate the entire terrain and to build slopes, we can use pieces of cork or polyspan which, after painting, will look great in our nativity scene. With these materials we can build bridges, mountains, simple buildings and even homemade figures.
