Do your children like to build things with LEGO® bricks? My little superheroes enjoy building all sorts of things and especially love using our LEGO® Challenge Cards. As we were decorating our Christmas tree, my oldest son asked if we could make our entire tree out of LEGO® bricks. Since we don’t have quite enough bricks for that, I suggested that he make a few LEGO® ornaments for our tree. As he was building, he said that he was going to help his little brother make the first letter of his name. I thought it was such a clever idea and a super cute keepsake, so we created LEGO® Initial Christmas Ornaments.
How To Make LEGO® Initial Christmas Ornaments:
- LEGO® Bricks
- Craft Glue
1. Build the first letter of your name with LEGO® bricks. You could also build the first letter of your last name for a family ornament too.
My children alternated the colors to make a pattern. One of my sons used 3rd and white bricks to make it look like a candy came.
2. After you have the letter formed, glue the bricks together. We used craft glue because it tends to have a stronger hold then school glue.
3. Cut a ribbon that is about 4 inches long.
4. Fold the ribbon to form a loop and glue the ends to the back of your letter ornament.
5. After the glue dries, hang the ornament on your tree.
These LEGO® Initial Christmas Ornaments are not only fun to build but they are special keepsakes that you and your children will love to hang on your tree year after year.

What a fun homemade ornament idea for Lego fans!
What a great way to use LEGO bricks! It would really be special to have a letter for every family member on the tree.
