Make St. Nicholas Lego Minifigures

—Two Ways!

Here are two ways to convert a Lego Santa Minifiure into St. Nicholas! The first just requires a color printer and good crisp paper. The second uses a 3D printer to make a miter and crozier. Both begin with a plain red Santa Minifigure with a white beard.

Make a cloak and miter for St. Nicholas.

  1. Print the PDF pattern; be sure to set "Page Scaling: None" or "Scale: 100%" to get the correct size.
  2. Use a 3/16-inch punch to make the three holes.
  3. Put the cloak's punched holes between the body and the beard; put the center one in place first, then the two side holes. For the miter, put adhesive on the straight tab, fold it over straight behind miter front, fold miter in half, securing the back to the tab.
  4. Getting the cloak on is a bit tricky, so do help a child assemble St. Nicholas.
