LEGO Christmas Tree Ornaments

This is really the first holiday season in which Tessa has been really into it. She’s asking all sorts of questions and her excitement is palpable.

We went out a bought a short 4 1/2 ft. Douglas Fir tree for our living room today, but yesterday, we put the small 2 ft. artificial tree up in Tessa’s bedroom. She decorated it all herself and was very proud of her efforts.

To celebrate her effort, I made a few ornaments for her tree of her favorite animal — a penguin.

I used the LEGO penguin keychain as my model for our ornament:

In fact, I made it exactly the same, but added the black round plate with the eye in it.

I only 4-5 more of those plates, but I’m hoping to make a few more ornaments with Tessa. We’ll post these after we make them.

Looking for ideas to make your own ornaments? Here’s a great post from one of my favorite LEGO blogs, The Brick Bloggerhttp://thebrickblogger.com/2012/11/makelego-christmas-ornaments/.
