So rad. Make: Projects user Papydom says:

Each year, my grandchildren and I build a different Nativity landscape. The little statuettes are always the same, but the scenery is different. This year my wife asked for Jesus’ manger to be in outer space. This is the result!

To create the right shapes, they used old cardboard boxes, IKEA spare parts, plastic soda bottles, and other discarded objects. Then they hot glued everything together and spray painted it all gold. What a cool grandpa and a fun tradition!
