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:
Felipe Andrade’s Captain Marvel:
An Ed McGuinness Superman:
A Cliff Chiang Wonder Woman, of course:
A New 52 Batgirl from an Adam Hughes cover:
Lois Lane and Superman, by Gary Frank:
A really cool Superman and Batman piece by Michael Cho:
A pink Wonder Woman for my mom:
More Cliff Chiang Wonder Woman:
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!

Agreed. Very nice ornaments indeed!
May I wish you a very Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.
can I have the instruction on how to make these
There’s a link above in the first paragraph, but here it is again: http://paperplateandplane.wordpress.com/2010/11/14/rolled-paper-ornaments/. I follow their instructions, but instead of the last piece of paper I made a template in MSWord that was the same size and stuck in pictures of my favourite superheroes!
