How to Make a Lego Christmas Tree Ornament

If you have a LEGO lover in your house, you probably have a whole bin full (or a floor full?) of LEGOs that you can use to build your own DIY ornaments! LEGO Christmas ornaments are fun and eco friendly because after Christmas, you can take them apart you can keep using them the rest of the year - unlike the glass balls that take up space in your garage or attic 11 months out of the year.

This LEGO Christmas tree was kid-designed by my seven year old son who wants to be a LEGO master builder when he grows up. He has also started dabbling in LEGO stop motion animations and helped me make the video that appears below! If you can't tell, I'm a pretty proud mama.

This DIY LEGO ornament is really easy to make. We used a rainbow of different studs for the ornaments but you can use whatever color studs you happen to have to decorate your LEGO Christmas tree. The translucent studs would make a great option as well because they look like glass ornaments or lights.

Once you have finished building your LEGO Christmas tree, thread a string through the plus shape inside the topper to hang it on your tree. The LEGOs click together nicely enough that it should be plenty sturdy without needing to glue the pieces together. If you don't want the pieces to be able to come apart, though, you could always glue them for a permanent LEGO ornament.
