15 Awesome LEGO Christmas Ornaments

Lego Christmas ornament tutorials
Christmas mornings at our house are filled with lots of LEGO sets, making the joys of Christmas last longer as we put them together. I know I'm not alone! No wonder LEGO and Christmas just seem to go hand in hand for so many families.

Lego Christmas ornaments are perfect for the days leading up to Christmas.  Maybe you need to keep little hands busy when they are home from school or just want unique ornaments on your tree. Unlike many store bought ornaments, LEGO ornaments will be lead free (yay!) and zero waste because when you are done, the LEGOs just go back in their bin to play with later instead of languishing in storage. I love that you can make LEGO ornaments of anything you can imagine - everything from LEGO Star Wars ornaments to simple classics like LEGO Christmas trees and candy canes.

If you're ready to get your LEGO Christmas mojo going, here are 15 awesome LEGO Christmas ornament tutorials to get your creative juices flowing!

  1. I am seeing great Christmas ornaments, but no patterns for them. Are patterns available?


  2. IF you click/tap the image of the ornament you like, it should take you to the directions you need to follow to build it!

  3. Do you have recommendations for buying lego pieces alone? the Lego site seems not to have them and eBay is very expensive

    1. There is a store near me called Bricks and Minifigs, which is a second hand lego store where you can pick through bulk bins to find specific pieces you want. If you don't live near one of those, there are likely other stores similar in style to this that let you buy second hand legos for good prices.

      I have also heard good things about the website "Choose a Brick" but I have not used it myself.
