“Christmas is too commercial, man!” You’ve heard that phrase uttered every year, and yes, it’s true. Christmas has been commercialized and taken over by the man. So you know what? If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. You can do this by actually making a Christmas ornament that plays commercials and hang it on your tree. There. Now Christmas is too commercial! But in a good way.

This fun ornament streams ‘90s commercials from YouTube, but you could make it stream anything you want. Maybe some Christmas cartoons, or a yule log, or a Christmas music video. This DIY project is from Sean Hodgins, and if you want to try building one for yourself, the 12-minute YouTube video here will show you how to do it, step by step.

Just keep in mind that this build isn’t for everyone. You need access to a 3D printer, and you need to know how to work with circuit boards too. Find the Instructable here. If you do build one for yourself, you are going to have a very cool ornament that brings your Christmas tree into the 21st century.
