San Francisco, CA (August 25, 2016) — Every year, families deck their trees with strings of popcorn, popsicle sticks, and gingerbread—but why not use LEGO?
This holiday season, LEGO fans can build lasting memories by making their own DIY ornaments with the help of The LEGO Christmas Ornaments Book (No Starch Press, $19.95, 220 pp., Sept. 2016). This new release from No Starch Press promises to liven up the holidays with its collection of hands-on projects that the whole family can build and enjoy for years to come.
With colorful graphics and detailed instructions, The LEGO Christmas Ornaments Book is the perfect gift for do-it-yourselfers and crafters. The 15 designs in the book include holiday classics like a wreath, snowflake, poinsettia, Christmas tree, and gingerbread house; fun stuff like a computer, arcade machine, and cheeseburger; and even simple geometric designs like a bow, barrel, and lantern. As author Chris McVeigh explains, “Whether you’re looking for a traditionally-shaped ornament or want to add something fun and quirky to your tree, there’s something for everyone in this book!”
Each chapter opens with a project overview that features the finished ornament and then walks readers through detailed, step-by-step building instructions. And because not every reader has a massive LEGO collection, the book shows alternate color options, so readers can put their own unique twist on each ornament.
According to No Starch Press founder Bill Pollock, “This book is great for anyone looking to easily add personality to their Christmas decorations. What a simple yet creative way for the whole family to have fun together while making something cool!”
The LEGO Christmas Ornaments Book will be in bookstores everywhere this September.
Interviews with Chris McVeigh and high-resolution press images are available upon request.
