LEGO Christmas Ornaments: Work with What Your Mama Gave Ya

Last year I got the idea of using LEGO blocks to make Christmas Ornaments. I finally got around to making some and they came out as planned. I didn't use any glue to make these so they can be taken apart after Christmas to play with. To hang the ornaments I placed a tied loop of fishing line between two of the LEGO blocks (exp. LEGO head, fishing line, hat). These are ornaments that anyone could make, even the craft challenged. I could picture a whole tree covered in LEGO ornaments.

Have no idea who this LEGO man is supposed to be. I think it's a toss up between Santa Claus and Dusty Hill.

LOL! I looked at that and thought ZZ Top.

What a great idea. My son is a lego maniac. Unless you get him the expensive Star Wars sets. Those he just scatters around the room.

Great idea for ornaments, especially if one wanted to do a theme tree!
