Lego Christmas tree ornaments are perfect for geek cheer

Christmas ornaments have been in stores around here since a few weeks before Halloween. With November here holiday commercials are playing on TV and you can find all the decorations you need for Christmas everywhere.

If you are a geeky type, plain shiny glass balls may not be good enough for your Christmas tree. What you need is something with more geek appeal. You can grab up the directions for making some sweet and festive looking ornaments for your tree out of Lego bricks.

The plans and instructions for the ornaments are offered in multiple colors and you will need software called Lego Digital Designer 4.0 to open the files with the designs. Naturally, you will need a stash of Lego bricks as well in various colors.
