Deck the Halls with LEGO® Decorations This Holiday Season
Passion for LEGO® building is a year-round endeavor — holidays included. If you’re looking for a unique way to decorate your home for the upcoming holidays, consider using your extensive LEGO® collection to try fun, new projects and save money at the same time.
Whether you’re decorating for Halloween, Day of the Dead, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or countless other holidays through the winter months, make sure you’re storing your LEGO® bricks and works in progress in a safe place. Banderbox by Snark22 is a LEGO® workstation that also doubles as a sorting box. Find your favorite color and order today. In the meantime, check out these awesome LEGO® decorations to put up around your home for the holidays.
Halloween & Day of the Dead
Building structures is a popular pastime for LEGO® builders, but what if you put a little twist and added some ghosts and goblins to your build? Use odd colored bricks to make the house look spooky, and add a motion sensor that howls or screeches when someone walks by.
Skull & Skeleton
Add a memento mori or “reminder of mortality” to your Halloween decorations with a LEGO® skull or skeleton. If you’re building a full skeleton, it will help to use a baseplate like the one on the lid of the Banderbox LEGO® workstation. This will keep your build steady as you add onto your figure.
If you’re building a skull, consider using different colored bricks to create a sugar skull pattern. Create a color palette for a colorful Day of the Dead celebration.
Real pumpkins tend to rot after just a few days out in the cold, but a jack-o-lantern made from LEGO® bricks will last the entire month! To prevent a fire hazard, use battery-powered lights to illuminate the inside of your LEGO® creation.

Perhaps one of the biggest symbols of Thanksgiving is the meal we eat — the turkey. Whether you stick to this traditional feast or not, adding turkey decor to your home will liven up the holiday spirit. You can make your turkey as big or small, or as simple or as intricate as you like. Just remember to store your unfinished LEGO® bird in the Banderbox LEGO® workstation for safekeeping until you can finish the build.
You aren’t the only one on Thanksgiving who’s dying to stuff your face. Remind everyone of the joys of spending quality time together and enjoying delicious food by creating a feast scene using your favorite minifigures.
Christmas, Hanukkah & Kwanzaa
When it comes to decorating for the holidays, nothing is quite as fun as decorating the Christmas tree. When you’ve built your own LEGO® ornaments, it’s an even more enjoyable experience. You can create ornaments with traditional Christmas colors and designs, transform your favorite Christmas characters into baubles you can hang from the tree, or build unique ornaments that reflect your personality.

Whether lifesize or a small table-top tree, nothing expresses your passion for LEGO® and Christmas together like a Christmas tree. If you plan it right, you can even decorate your LEGO® tree with your LEGO® ornaments!
Another festive symbol of the Christmas season is Rudolph and his fellow reindeer. Build these animals in proportion, as ornaments, or lifesize! Consider using your LEGO® reindeer as a part of your house lights display for the neighbors to admire.
If you celebrate Hanukkah in December, there’s just as many LEGO® projects that you can decorate with. Perhaps the most iconic symbol of Hanukkah is the menorah. You can build your menorah any way you like and even create holders for your taper candles. This project is safer for real candles since there is no LEGO® plastic above the flame.
While it’s probably not a good idea to play the game Dreidel with a LEGO® dreidel, it still makes a great decoration for around your home. Create multiple versions in different colors for a bright and festive holiday.
Kwanzaa is another winter holiday with a candle holder as one of its main symbols for the season, except this candle holder is called a kinara. Like the menorah, you can build a LEGO® kinara that will actually hold candles.
What do all of these seasons have in common? Gift giving, of course! Instead of wrapping your gifts in cardboard and wrapping paper that’s just going to be thrown away, build gift boxes out of LEGO® bricks that can be reused. Design the boxes based on who the gift is for so you can keep track of what gift goes to who.
Keep Your Projects Safe
No matter what holiday decor you’re building with your LEGO® bricks, make sure your creations are kept safe until you’re ready to display them. Banderbox has a LEGO® workstation built directly onto the lid for you to build on. Check out our selection of different colors, and order your Banderbox from Snark22 today.
