Merry Christmas to you!

I got this idea in the middle of the night to create my own Christmas ornament that has influences from Japanese paper walls and glowing paper lanterns. This would look great flickering on the Christmas tree but also as decor in the house or office.

The brown areas are PLA plastic but the yellow surface is actually 3D printed wood! The light really illuminated well against the thinly printed wood but white or yellow filament might be a good alternative.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
