The main structure is built of IKEA FNISS waste paper bins, joined with nuts and bolts and lit with Christmas lights. I built a ride on train that has IKEA push lights too.

I build a different grotto each year for all the children (and adults) we know, in memory of my late father, who built grottos for us as children. Hope you like it!
