DIY decorations: Edible nativity scene
Show us your DIY Christmas decorations
As part of our DIY Christmas decorations assignment, Alieke Dierckx shows us her edible nativity scene, made entirely of home-made marzipan, cheerfully presented in a gingerbread stable.
This tasty festive decoration is not beneficial for the waistline.
Its structural integrity is in keeping with its Christchurch origins; the roof sags a bit and Dierckx doubts the whole thing could withstand more than a 3.5 earthquake.
However, Joseph with a Mohawk might lift your spirits, and if that doesn't work, how about Gandalf the shepherd or Confucius the Wise Man?
Have yourself a merry quintessential Christmas with a festive turtle, a row of Bethlehem ducks and a pig.
