I am a big fan of making Christmas gifts wherever possible, last year these Space Invaders inspired Christmas tree ornaments were one of the most popular things I made. If was a fun project, easy to execute.
So Iâ€™m releasing the files out into the wild, I hope that you all make bit more and maybe buy a little less.
Youâ€™ll notice there done in the retro pixel 8-bit style, everyone seems to like them.

If you do not have a laser cutter you can also donate and get a set in a nice gift envelope:
1.) Download and cut ornaments
2.) Use provided holes to attach some sort of hanging device, like string, ribbon, suction cup.
3.) Hang and enjoy the space invasion.
