Ornaments to Help Decorate Your Tree

There are always great Christmas tree ornaments built each year. This batch by LEGO 7 are some of the first we've seen for this season. The designs showcased below have a very playful design to them, almost as if they were specifically designed as children's ornaments (which they absolutely could have been). That's face it, there were always "those ornaments" that we couldn't hang on the tree as kids because they were more fragile, right? Well, now it's time for you to build your own ornaments that nobody else is allowed to hang proudly on the Christmas tree! If these don't inspire you to start designing some of your own, I don't know what will! 

Christmas Ornaments

Nathaniel Stoner

     My name is Nathaniel Stoner, and I am an very active LEGO builder.  I mostly build in the themes of castle and science-fiction, but I also dabble in other genres and create occasional random MOC's (My Own Creations). 

     When I was younger, I would get and build small LEGO sets for my birthday, but I was never really into them.  When they fell apart, I would become frustrated attempting to put them back together and would throw them in a box in my closet.  I couldn't stand them!

     Then, miraculously, I became addicted to the LEGO brick later in my teen years.  Ever since, I have continued to build up (pun intended) my collection of bricks and to expand my knowledge of techniques and building skills.  LEGO is truly more than a toy, its an art form and a way to express yourself.

     For the most part, I collect LEGO Star Wars (mainly the minifigs), which is probably my favorite LEGO theme.  I have a fairly decent collection, including some of the original 1999 sets, such as the Snowspeeder, X-Wing, and Naboo starfighter.  I also collected LEGO the Lord of the Rings when those sets first came out.  The minifigs are great, and the story remains one of my favorites ever. 

     My hope is to inspire other young (and perhaps even older) LEGO builders to unleash their inner creativity!  You can find me on my Flikr here
