Since 2013, when I bought my first 3D printer, I have designed and printed at least one Christmas Tree ornament.
2013’s was a 3D printed version of the 3D printer I bought: An Afinia H479:
2014 we had just purchased our lovely brand new house, so naturally:
2015 saw two different sets of decorations. One was a Santa Werblz, based on the wobbly WERBLZ toys I had created that year.

Then I cut the thing into a sphere to fit these 8cm plastic sphere ornaments I had purchased. You can get these at most big craft stores. Two halves snap together to put anything you’d like inside. I filled the sphere with a spherical cut of Stonehenge, concentrating on the rear stones, and put a crow on the lintel.
