It was a beautiful Christmas and, like last year, I enjoyed making several miniature nativities to give as gifts. The ones I made in 2010 included an angel, star, a “stable,” Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus. This year, I kept it to just the 3 figures of the holy family––Joseph, Mary, and Jesus. I made the change partially because it is much easier and faster to make 3 figures than 4+, but I also realized that the arrangement of 3 figures looks better too.
Joseph stands about 2 inches tall, just to give you an idea of size.
