Posted by T-man 10 years ago
In a few days it's Christmas, and since Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year, I wanted to wish you all a merry Christmas! I also realised Christmas and creating are very much alike: they both bring joy, happiness and gifts, so that makes Christmas and Instructables an even better combination. Merry Christmas!!!

I had some duct tape lying around and was wondering to myself 'what stuff for Christmas can you make out of duct tape!' If anyone has any ideas about possible duct tape Christmas decorations or other Christmas related crafts, please let me know...I really want this Christmas to be a little more interesting than last years...

Y'know, I've always wondered about this. An aquarium filled with exotic fish here is using an electric eel to power lights on a Christmas tree.Each time the electric eel at the Aqua Toto Gifu aquarium touches a copper wire in its tank, it sends power that lights up globes decking a Christmas tree.From the Mainichi Daily News. Can't get the link to work to verify, so possibly a hoax.

It's that time of year again - off to the in-laws for The Season Of Good Will. I'll be largely absent, so have fun, don't drink too much, and please remember to vote for the Kite Family in the various contests ending soon. Roger-X Conker-X (And don't forget me!)

Goodbye, peeps! Plans have changed slightly for Christmas, so I probably won't be near a broadband connection very often, if at all, until the New Year, just in time for my second anniversary as an Instructableer. In the mean time, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, enjoy the Solstice and the New Year and any other holidays I've missed.

Hey guys! Before i say anything else, Merry Christmas! I know I've been quiet, but that's because I've been working on something big. I have a good idea of when it will come out(about jan 3). And here's a tip for you guys. When things get quiet, things start to get crazy(crazy for me anyway lol). If I'm gonna finish this, I'm going to need a little more knex. I think that I am going to make a mag fed rifle that shoots green rods. Pics are handle. Third pic is handle attached to something.

Ok guys, I need some help. My mother has decided to throw a Christmas party, and I need help coming up with things to eat. Just little appetizers and finger foods. She wants to go ahead and get a menu together, so that we can kind of price everything (money is a bit tight this year). I'm drawing a blank as to what kind of goes with the holiday. Especially given the restrictions: No tomatoes, No corn, No shellfish. Some people coming over are extremely allergic to them. I have been asked to make a cheesecake and some bacon wrapped chicken. So that's two things. I need a few more. Any suggestions? Really any food that goes with the holiday, or just social get togethers with be appreciated.

It's when the new shows start telling me how much to tip everyone. The serious "advice" from these people ranges anywhere for a day's pay to a month's salary for everyone from the garbage man (there are four on the trucks in my neighborhood, does each receive $100?) to each person where I get my haircut, not just the barber, EVERYONE. The suggested tips run up into the thousands of dollars. Hey Christmas, go to hell! And let's not forget the office gift exchange, we are strongly encouraged to participate, since they can't make it mandatory, to bring a new $10 gift. Last year I hand made something and caught a firestorm of crap for it. This year, being my last, I bought a $10 gift and gave it to Toys for Tots. Materialistic, self centered BS that's the holiday spirit.

.. fa lalalala la la la la! OK folks, I'm off to the wilds of Northern England in about 18 hours from the time of typing, spending Christmas with relatives who don't really grok modern technology, so my access to the inter tubes will be sporadic. Just in case I don't get online before then, I'd just like to wish you all the best for whichever version of the season you choose to celebrate. Whether you are celebrating with family, friends, I wish you a relaxing time with your loved ones. If you are celebrating alone, I wish you a hug from a stranger and a phone call from a distant friend. If they don't phone you, you should phone them, just to wish them a happy holiday, and to remind them that they are in your thoughts. The tree was posted on Laughing Squid. EDIT OK, so I didn't end up missing so much, but I will definitely be offline for the next 24+ hours. Happy Holliers, one and all!

I made this in dedication to all the great people in my life. The text version is for all maccies and linuxers out there. Note that I finished this at 1:16 AM, and wanted to get it out for all the people who have Christmas tomorrow, and so errors are expected. I also know that it is not politically correct to say "Merry Christmas," but I don't really care.

How do you hang up your christmas lights? On our fence I used zip ties, but when I went to put lights around some windows, I saw the Window christmas light frame but I didn't have the right lights for it and used Duct Tape. Any ideas?

I want to have a nightmare before christmas halloween party in a couple years, but in the years i wait i want to make some custom decorations. Does anyone have any ideas? They must be fairly inexpensive i am fifteen so i dont have very much income, but the can be time consuming since i have years. And how about some christmas style decorations too. thankz in advance! P.S. my favorite materials are paper, popsicle sticks, and duct tape so if it includes those materials it is that much better.

I want to take a string of LED Christmas lights and add some form of relay that causes the entire light string to blink. I'm sure this can be easily achieved by adding some kind of in-line relay or circuit, but I'm not quite sure what I'm looking for to add. Any ideas?

It's that time of year again, whether you be in the cold of Canada or in the sunny beaches of Australia, Christmas Fever is sweeping the nation like an epidemic on steroids. Even if you do not follow the practices of Christmas, you still get that warm feeling that is only attained by a holiday at this time of year. I would like to say, open up your hearts to a fellow man and and do something nice for Christmas, and then post it here if you wish! Whether it be a personalized card or a new Honda Accord with custom paint job for your mate, I, and I am pretty sure I can safely say many others, wish to see it! And I wish to finish here with a more heartfelt note, addressed to every one that reads this: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and every one you know. ~K

Just a quick festive greeting to one and all, rushing to beat a dying battery and get you yet another huge meal. Bird books as expected, but also my father in law gave me a book that should end upp becoming the source of a really major instructable over the Easter / Summer breaks... Oh, and we've been invited to stay with friends in Summer. In Geneva - the Swiss one. Anyhoo, hope you've all had as grand a Christmas as Family Kite and all associated families. "See" you all later. >K<

I'm looking to replicate a brass ornament for a dear friend. The ornaments in question are similar to these (http://imgur.com/a/WGPXE) Do you guys have any suggestions on how to get the precision for the concentric rings as well as the detail inside? I thought about using a Dremel for the detail work, and snips for the outside, but I'm having trouble coming up with a solution for the rounded rectangles. Thanks!

Ok, I'm not a big one for receiving gifts. I like telling me people to get me this or that, that if the need for something was that great then I would already have it. Well my wife won't leave it alone, so she is making me make a list. I have nothing nerdy or diy oriented although I've always loved everything about instructables / make. Basicly I'm hoping people on here can give me an idea of where I can start. First off maybe suggest a book to get me started in circuitry / electronics, don't really need one probably due to online tutorials. Also I need tools, tell me what tools a novice electronics hobbyist should invest in first. Thanks!

Hey all, I decided that since so many people were wanting to see my new gun, I'd post it early. Besides, there are so many christmas guns because people were following the trend, that mine would be overlooked. So, take a look, tell me what you think. www.instructables.com/id/TJASTR2-1/ (PS I know this is a bit spammish, but since my last instructable wasn't posted for 4 days, I'm thinking that this might not even come out for christmas.)
