DIY Christmas light made from paper plates

Today I’ll show you how you can make a super beautiful illuminated nativity scene out of two simple soup paper plates and a bit of kraft paper – whether as a gift or as decoration for the coming Advent season. To make it as easy as possible for you to recreate the nativity scene, I have created a ready-made print template for you. There are two different plate sizes in the PDF file – you can find them in the material list. I wish you a lot of fun crafting the nativity scene!
