Element Experimentation: Christmas Wreath

‘Tis the season! At least, that’s what my kids tell me ๐Ÿ˜‰ Not sure how much longer I can hold off on putting up all the Christmas decor ๐Ÿ˜€ I don’t think I’ve ever used LEGO rubber bands for a MOC, but it works pretty nicely for the Christmas wreath here ๐Ÿ™‚
