NOW ON TO THE LEGO CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS FOR A HANDMADE CHRISTMAS!
LEGO CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS
Our Christmas LEGO ornaments focus on using simple LEGO bricks and easy to make building ideas. However, you can take each design and give it your own unique twist!
LEGO CHRISTMAS TREE
I used a 2 x 10 flat piece to build the tree on and to clip on the yellow piece to hold the chain. Alternatively you can simply tie the ribbon around the top or use a LEGO chain and clip to the studs.
I used a series of vertical flat pieces to create a tree shape and then a few 2×2 flat squares to create a little depth to the tree. Add a 2×2 brown flat piece.
Decorate your LEGO Christmas tree as you like! My son chose colorful 1×1 studs.
LEGO WREATH ORNAMENT
Not quite sure what to call this but it would make a fun wreath if you had all green with thin red ones in between for holly! Use the colors you have. You could try a candy cane color theme.
My son used a pipe cleaner to thread the LEGO pieces in an alternating color pattern. This was really all his idea for a LEGO ornament. A sort of take on the traditional pony bead and pipe cleaner ornament!
LEGO CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT
This little ornament was actually a challenge I found on the LEGO classic site. I added a special hanger to it to put on our tree.

Well, as you can see we used the colors we had on hand. In the next photo down you can see we used a piece of an aircraft carrier to construct a reindeer head.
From there we dressed our LEGO Rudolph ornament up with a few flat tiles and assorted bricks to make antlers. Make sure to add a red nose too.
You can see the back of the reindeer here. Remember, take our ideas and run with them, make them your own, and create whatever makes you happy with your LEGO collection!
LEGO CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT BALL
So simple and nothing fancy but you can let the kids use all those tiny pieces to decorate their own ball shaped LEGO ornaments.
You can see below that we started with a circular flat piece and added a hanging piece with a chain to it. Decorate it as you wish. We made a few with different colors and patterns.
HOW TO HANG YOUR LEGO ORNAMENTS
Right above here you can see the two different type of hanging pieces we sorted through our collection to find. If you don’t have these type of hanger or attachments, see what else you might have or you can either attach one of those LEGO chains or add ribbon to make it hang on the tree!
