Nativity Silhouettes

I started putting up our Christmas decorations today, and was a little sad to note that in our new place, we don't really have a kid-friendly area to put up some of our nativities in the living room.  However, since the living room is really the main room in our home, I felt that it needed a nativity!  As I was looking around the room pondering this dilemma, I was drawn to our head silhouettes.  Then it dawned on me that I could use this same idea and divide the frames into a nativity!

 I have the files for each of the pictures and the picture that I took these images from, if anyone wants them.  They are for 5x7 frames and the files are 72 bmp.  The resolution isn't perfect, but it's better than good enough for me!  I really loved how these turned out and how they look in our living room!  The take home point from this post is to be creative about how you decorate seasonally.  I have a few areas in our home that I change the images in the frames to depict seasonal interests.  I just keep the images that had been in the frames in a folder in one of my scrapbook storage boxes so that they won't get bent, and then once the holiday or occasion passes, I put the usual ones back in the frame.
