Up to Date Interiors’ Christmas Series starts off with a quick, easy, and cheap makeover. Transfer a Dollar Tree Nativity set into a modern vignette!
Greetings friends! I’m excited to share with you the first Christmas craft for this year. How to update a Dollar Tree nativity set!
This project starts off Up to Date Interiors’ Christmas Series. For the next few weeks you will be seeing a lot of handmade decor including DIY Christmas trees, DIY Christmas wreath, Holiday table setting, DIY ornaments, and to finish off the holiday season a Christmas Parade of Homes featuring Bloggers’ home tours. Are you ready?
Last week I did a little shopping for this week’s Christmas crafts. I found just what I needed at the Dollar Tree. Six piece nativity set for $6! Have you seen these at your local dollar store? A thrift store might be another great place to look for a discounted set to update.

All you have to do for this quick update is spray paint the nativity set figures with a few light coats of white paint. I used Rust-Oleum flat enamel in white. Make sure to let them dry completely but it won’t take very long.
I love how they look on my painted zig-zag tray. It’s nice to have them corralled together. You can see all of the details on the figures nicely!
