Decorate your home in true holiday spirit with this easy-to-make miniature tableau of the Holy Family, perfect for a windowsill or a child's dresser.

  • 2 small terra-cotta pots
  • 1 small terra-cotta saucer
  • Acrylic paint
  • Fine-point marker
  • 3 wooden knobs, one smaller than the others
  • Tacky glue
  • Fabric
  • Embroidery floss
  • Raffia

  1. Paint the terra-cotta pots and saucer. Use a fine-point marker to draw faces on the wooden knobs.

  2. Once the paint is dry, turn the pots upside down and use tacky glue to attach a larger head to the bottom of each pot. When the glue is dry, drape a piece of fabric around the top of each head and tie it in place with embroidery floss.

  3. Form a swaddling blanket from another piece of cloth, as shown, gluing it to secure the shape. Glue the small head to the blanket and set it in the saucer on a bed of raffia.
