Nativity Made From Medicine Bottles

I was thinking I wanted to make a nativity when I saw my husband's empty medicine bottles. I thought these would make neat people. Then the idea came to me.


Approximate Time: 1 hour


  • 2 medicine bottles
  • 1 larger lid
  • paint
  • glue
  • 3 wooden balls
  • scrap fabrics
  • shredded paper
  • pens
  • cotton ball


First paint the bottles desired color. Let dry. Paint the wooden balls flesh color. Let dry. Paint the lid.

Draw faces on balls. Turn bottles upside down. Glue a ball to each bottle. Glue the other ball to a cotton ball.

Make a garment for the figures. Make a swaddling blanket for the baby. Put shredded paper in lid. Glue baby to lid.
