I love Christmas baubles, angels, and garlands of course. But it's fun to add a bit of my personality into tree decorating. Some pieces from my favorite Nintendo games and a couple mini cameras would add a nice nerdy touch. Here's how you can add some nerdy fun to your tree this year with geeky ornaments from circuit boards to Storm Troopers.
Little Cameras: Leave it to the Photojojo store to make these darling little camera ornaments. These camera-shaped ornaments are made by a glass-making outfit in Poland, known for their glass blowing craft. Each ornament is hand-painted and glittered. They're the perfect camera bling to add to your tree.
Super Mario and Princess Peach Wood: These wooden figures of Super Mario and Princess Peach are way too cute. They are also multi-functional and could be cake toppers, desk figures and ornaments of course. If you'd like to hang this pair in your tree, you can let the knottingwood store know and they will add a hook attachment on them.
DIY Space Invaders: If you're a DIYer, you can also make your own ornaments based on your favorite game. The Cheese Thief makes a great Space Invaders ornament, which you can use as a guide to create your own. You need normal blank ornaments and then create the character cutout to stick on it.
NES Nintendo Circuit Board: These ornaments are made from authentic NES Nintendo mother boards, how cool is that? All surfaces and edges have been filed and polished so you don't need to worry about any debris or loose pieces. Each ornament is handmade and will include the Nintendo logo with the date of manufacture. I like the combination of a techie yet vintage style you get with these.
Storm Trooper: This Storm Trooper ornament is in the shape of a snowflake and is made of white acrylic. From far away, they look like regular snowflakes, but upon close inspection you'll reveal the Star Wars fan in you. There are also Yoda and Boba Fett ornaments.
