If you have a certain type of decorating style when it comes to Christmas and that includes rustic nativity scene sets, then you are in the right place.
I’ve had several different nativity scenes, even including kid’s nativity sets, and there is nothing like a rustic or distressed style set that really takes you back and makes you think about what the holidays are all about.
I’ve researched some different nativity scenes this year and have come up with the best rustic nativity sets that you should have in your home (or outside your home) this year.
Be sure to check out all the different sets including the distressed wood nativity as well as even the rustic outdoor nativity sets.
Rustic Wood Nativity Set
This is a super unique nativity scene that is made from natural driftwood and definitely has that rustic and primitive style to it.
The set is on the smaller side as it only comes with the three figures and small manger.
The whole thing measures 5.5″ high and is is approximately 7″ wide.
This set would be nice for on a smaller shelf or small side table in your living room. It may be too small to really get any attention if you are planning on using it for under your Christmas tree or even on a large fireplace mantle.
Rustic Style Olive Wood Nativity Set
If you want something extra special, you need to check out this hand carved nativity set that is made from olive wood from Bethlehem.
Included with the set you get a certificate of origin with a 4 page story of the real nativity.
This set includes 12 figures that are separate from the manger so you can arrange them as you like.
The natural olive wood gives the manger more of a rustic style and would fit in perfectly with other rustic Christmas decorations.
One thing to keep in mind with this olive wood nativity set is that the figures are carved to be more of a crude outline rather than really intricate with faces and designs. This does give it more of a rustic and primitive feel as well.
Although this nativity scene is not huge (some large olive wood nativity sets will cost hundreds of dollars) this comes at an affordable price and is a good size for a table or for a smaller Christmas tree.
Another bonus of this set is that it is made of sturdy wood so if you have kids this could be a good set that even they could play with.
Rustic Nativity Scene on Concrete Stones
Maybe you are looking for something different than your ordinary nativity set or simply want a nativity scene decoration for another place in your home?
This is such a neat nativity decoration that features the nativity hand painted onto concrete stones.
The middle stone measures 6 x 9 inches and the two outside stones are 6 x 6 inches.
The stones are finishes with a concrete wash that helps the paint stay as well as helps the colors really pop so you can see the nativity silhouette even from far away.
These stones would be great for a fireplace mantle or you can even use them outdoors on a porch.
The seller even includes free pads to place under the stones so you don’t have to worry about them scratching the floor or mantle you place them on.
Primitive Style Nativity Christmas Decoration
This is another wonderful option if you are looking to have a primitive or country style theme for Christmas and you don’t mind not having a huge nativity set.
This would even be really nice in addition to a nativity set for a shelf or mantle to go along with your other Christmas decor.
The decoration measures 9″ high and is 8″ wide.
It features Mary and Joseph with baby Jesus lying in a manger. There is also a star as well as a sign that reads “Jesus Is a Gift.”
This is a great reminder of the real reason why Christmas is celebrated.
The colors and style of painting really reflect a country or primitive decorating style and would go great with a primitive Christmas tree .
Rustic Outdoor Nativity Scene
If you are looking for an outdoor nativity set, this one is a great option that is simple but yet still powerful.
The set is made of a marine grade plastic that is designed to not fade or crack in harsh weather for years and years. This means you easily get your money out of this decoration as you can display it in your yard for many years with it still looking brand new.
This set is pretty neat in that it slide together easily and only takes about 5-10 minutes to put together or take apart. Then you have slim decoration that can be stored easily without taking up much room.
When assembled the nativity measures 46.5″ wide, is 50″ tall and is 23″ deep.
When buying outdoor decorations you do need to keep in mind that a lot of them will wear down or fade with the harsh winter weather, but with this one you can get a quality and beautiful nativity and use it year after year.
This holiday season make sure you reflect the real reason we celebrate Christmas and add one of these beautiful rustic nativity scene sets to your home.
