Project #1:  Gifts

Christmas Lego Projects with Instructions

Okay, so we don’t have instructions for this one.  But it’s pretty simple – build some gifts!  I tried to get the boys to build a LEGO® tree to go with them, but they didn’t want to.  Oh well, you can check out the tree in our DIY Lego Advent calendar post for some inspiration. 🙂

Project #2:  Reindeer Ornament

Here are the pieces you need to build the reindeer ornament:

Put together the head as shown below.  We used red ribbon to hang the ornament.

Then flip it over and add the eyes, nose, and antlers!

Project #3:  Snowman

Since the snowman requires several steps, I decided to put the instructions for this one in a separate post.  That way, people who don’t want to build this one don’t have to scroll and scroll!  You can find the snowman instructions here.

Here’s how we built the people.  Mary and Joseph, three wise men, one shepherd, and the white thing is a sheep.  🙂

Add ribbon to hang it on the tree, or just display like this!

Project #5:  Wreath Ornament

Lego Christmas Projects with Instructions

Aidan built this simple wreath out of elbow shaped pieces.  (I don’t know how we accumulated so many of these?  Maybe the Toy Story Army Guy sets we own?)  You can hang it on the tree as is, or add a ribbon for hanging.

Enjoy these projects?  You might want to check out our DIY Lego Advent Calendar ideas or browse our Lego category for more building ideas.

          This was so much fun! We made 4/5 during our big rain storm this morning (don't have the pieces for the wreath). My boys (4 & 6) we're so happy that Mommy was playing Legos with them for once! The snowman was a fun challenge but I like the nativity the best.

                Very cute! We had enough similar pieces so I made the nativity while my boys played legos. Like the previous poster said they were just excited mommy was playing Legos for once!

                    Got the Lego Advent Calendar at Costco... it's got a Lego Santa! Not as cute as the DIY, but still fun for my little boy!

                      Oooh, I will have to go check our Costco! Ours had three packs of Star Wars mini ships for $23.99. Pretty good deal!

                          Also searching through foreclosures, auctions, and homes which might be
                          preparing to get into foreclosure as being a great supply of bargains.
                          Another method to protect yourself like a property investor
                          is as simple as properly choosing what your small business entity should
                          be. Till quite a while back, before tourism and real-estate
                          Praia do Forte took a large leap, it was a regular fishing village.

                            I create the digital project of your "nativity ornament" and I published it on my BrickLink site.
                            Of course, I linked your idea (this blog page).

                            If you agree, I can still publishing the page, otherwise I will delete it!

                            Here the link: https://studio.bricklink.com/v2/build/model.page?idModel=58645

                            You can donwload instruction, 3D model and, for who is registered in BrickLink, select shops for pieces and bricks.

                            Thanks in advance,
