The nerdization of holiday decor isn’t going away anytime soon—and that’s just fine with us. Because, when you pull your tree out of your garage or drag home a fresh specimen from the tree lot, it just feels right to trim it in homage to our favorite fandoms. If your fandom of choice is Star Wars, you have it so easy. Every company ever has paired up with Lucasfilm in advance of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and that includes companies who make ornaments. Like Numskull, which has a ton of Star Wars baubles/ornaments painted to look like characters from the original trilogy for the occasion.
The tin ornaments come in packs of six each and are split up by film. You can cover your tree in stormtroopers, Han Solo, Leia, Emperor Palpatine, R2-D2, and so many more. See:
You could easily cover your tree with all of these ornaments, but they’d also work nicely as accent pieces, too—hang them alongside solid-colored ornaments for a more minimalist statement.
But we’re also gluttons for excess, so there’s an entire gallery of ornaments just below—and you need to look at all the pictures (Pretend I did a Jedi hand wave while typing that), because the designs are worth seeing close up. My mind’s spinning with possibilities. I want to take all The Empire Strikes Back ornaments and put them on a white tree. It needs to happen.
Do you plan on purchasing any of these ornaments (they’re available at Yellow Bulldog)? Do you think it’s the best thing that it’s easier than ever to have a Star Wars-themed Christmas tree? Talk to me in the comments.
