Gingerbread is one of the best things about Christmas — so why not turn it into a Christmas decoration? This gingerbread man was modeled after the one from Shrek, complete with a frosted face and gumdrop buttons. 

Definitely an easy print, this gingerbread man is sure to look great, especially when painted. It’ll look right at home on your Christmas tree or even in front of a gingerbread house.

Try out some Christmas tree-ception with these tiny Christmas tree ornaments. There are four different models to choose from: twisted, not twisted, and with or without the ornament hole.

Each tree is based off the profile of a snowflake. If you were to slice the tree in half horizontally, you’d see a snowflake at the cut (check out the Thingiverse page for pictures). Pretty nifty, no?

The great thing about 3D printing your own ornaments is that you can print whatever you want — even if it’s not strictly Christmas-related.

Nonetheless, Christmas is the best time of the year to sit around a fire and sip hot beverages. So why not print out some coffee cups? These would be great for decorating a coffee shop or just to give your house a homey vibe.

The ornament comes in three snap-fit parts. Simply tie a knot underneath the lid and your cup is complete.

Made up of three to four concentric stars, each piece rotates independently around the center axis. The best part? The whole ornament will 3D print in one piece — no assembly required!
