Homemade Superhero Christmas Tree Ornaments

It’s very nearly Christmas, so things will be pretty quiet around here this week, but before I get too wrapped up in festive fun I thought I’d post these Christmas tree ornaments I made.  I went to Target a couple weeks back to try to buy some, but a) they were out of Wonder Woman, and b) the remaining ornaments they had looked really cheap.  So I made my own!  I used a cool paper rolling technique I found online and added some of my favourite art from my favourite comics, and here’s what I came up with:

A Hawkeye ornament, with David Aja cover art:

Some Jim Lee Batman, from All Star Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder, I think:

Fiona Staples’ The Will and Lying Cat from Saga:


They were fun and easy to make, and now my tree is way cooler and nerdier.  And sort of exclusive; I doubt there are many Christmas trees out there rocking a Lying Cat ornament.

So happy holidays everyone!  Enjoy your various celebrations.  If you’re still looking for some last minute gifts, I know a good book you can pre-order.  Just make them a nice gift certificate.  Heck, if you actually pre-order my book for someone this Christmas, I’LL make you a gift certificate you can print out.  Just tell me in the comments and I’ll get on it right away.  Happy holidays!
