If you have a house full of LEGO, you can’t have a Christmas tree without a few simpleton make LEGO Christmas ornaments! You don’t need a ton of fancy pieces, but there are definitely a few pieces that make LEGO ornament making a little bit easier. We are still making simple, kid led LEGO projects. Also check out our LEGO Christmas building challenges and free printable calendar.

NOW ON TO THE LEGO ORNAMENTS FOR A HANDMADE CHRISTMAS!
LEGO CHRISTMAS TREE
I used a 2×10 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 tree as you like! My son chose colorful 1×1 studs.
LEGO WREATHE ORNAMENT
Not quite sure what to call this but it would make a fun wreathe if you had all green with thin red ones in between for holly! Use the colors you have! Candy cane theme…
My son used a pipe cleaner to thread the LEGO pieces in an alternating color pattern. This was really all his idea for an ornament. A sort of take on the traditional pony bead and pipe cleaner 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. You can see in the next photo down that we used a piece of an aircraft carrier to construct a reindeer head.
From there you can see we dressed him 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!
SIMPLE LEGO CHRSITMAS ORNAMENT BALL
So simple and nothing fancy but you can let the kids use all those tiny pieces to decorate their own ball shaped 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.
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 might have a whole or a piece you can either attach one of those LEGO chains to or add ribbon to make it hang on the tree!
Will you make ornaments with your LEGO collection this Christmas? I would love to see what you and your kids come up with this holiday season!
