Last month we launched the Minifolk peg doll outfits as well as Smollhouse Foldaway Dollhouse and you’ve gone crazy for them! Thanks so much for your enthusiasm and support. Today we are excited to combine these two concepts into one product: The Oh Holy Night Nativity.
This beautiful nativity invites your children to participate in the Christmas story. When I was growing up, my family nativity set was definitely HANDS OFF (we managed to break almost every single ceramic figure anyway). The Oh Holy Night Nativity is ready to play and almost indestructible.
The set includes printable clothing for characters of the nativity (see full list of characters below in the supplies list) as well as a printable background that you can use to set up the manger scene. Put the set on display when your children are done playing!
6 3.5-inch peg dolls for the men character (3 Wisemen, Joseph, 2 Shepherds)
4 3.5 inch-peg dolls for the women character (Mary, Angels, Shepherd Woman)
2 2-3/8-inch peg dolls for the shepherd children
printouts of character clothes
printouts of background scenes
Xacto Knife, scissors
3 pieces of matte board or other hard backing, cut to 7.5 x 10 inches
packing tape to tape sides of background together
Gold scrapbook paper (for the angel’s halo)
Putting the Minifolk Together
We have included detailed instructions in your download, going over how to cut out the pattern and adhere it to the doll. It is full of tips, best practices, and guides for making your application process smooth, easy, and fun! We also include detailed instructions on how to add faces—it’s full of lots of tips and ideas! There are over 30 faces to look at, use as inspiration, or even trace right onto the doll (which is a custom step totally up to your personal style and preference!) This DIY nativity pdf is made for the crafter and non-crafter alike—so that no matter your level of expertise and experience, it’s sure to be a fun craft and perfect gift for your littles!
