Advent 2023 Day 12

Tree and Workbench

Can you believe we’re already at the halfway point? Yup, it’s 12 days down, 12 to go. Here we get an undecorated Christmas tree from Friends and a workbench from Marvel. And I built a wreath.

No Advent calendar is complete without a Christmas tree. But this time it’s not (yet) decorated.

And a workbench? Sure, I guess. Marvel Cinematic Workbench.

I decided to stick with the festivity of the Friends model by doing a holiday wreath. The only piece from the Marvel build I used was the toolbox which is really just there as a stand in case you want it to stand upright. But really you’d probably remove that part and hang it instead, from the hollow stud of the white piece at the top.

Here’s a glimpse behind the wreath to see how it’s built.

This year I purchased and am building just two of the available five calendars LEGO has released: Friends and Marvel. If you want to build the others, here are some links to them on Amazon: City, Harry Potter, and Star Wars. (But please don’t support Harry Potter, due to the transphobic politics of J. K. Rowling.)
