Weird Crafts: Chloe Ezra’s absolutely amazing ‘Hanging Canuck’ tree ornaments

We get a lot of mileage out of Chloe Ezra here at Pass it to Bulis (such as the Pass it to Comics series, which will return in the new year, we promise). But our defense is a simple one: Chloe rules. She has a great style and great ideas, and when the two come together, well, the results tend to be pretty great.

As yet another example, we present Chloe’s completely original and completely adorable “Hanging Canuck tree things,” original creations that feature members of the Vancouver Canucks drawn hanging by their sweaters, to be strung up anywhere your heart should so choose:

I declare these ornaments to be among the best things ever and I automatically shun all who disagree.

Chloe has made ornaments out of six Canucks — Sami Salo and Roberto Luongo (featured above), as well as Henrik and Daniel Sedin, Jannik Hansen, and Alex Edler. But wait! There’s more! Overwhelmed with holiday cheer, she’s made each of them available for download here at PITB, with simple instructions on how to make them at home. Thus sayeth Chloe:

You print out the front and back, and then cut them out. I taped a penny between the two pieces to give them weight (which isn’t ideal because now I’m a good 10 cents poorer), hole-punched the tops, and hung them by gold ribbon. And they’re purposefully not that festive so they can be hung up anywhere, anytime just for kicks.

That’s right, friends. With the holiday season nearing its conclusion, these bad boys are still quite relevant. Hang ‘em from your rearview mirror. Use a thumb tack and pin ‘em to the wall. Make a mobile for the baby room. It’s your call. All six designs are below. Collect them all.

As you can see, Sami Salo is as pale and chill as ever. Be careful cutting him out. Obviously, he’s fragile.

You’ll be pleased to note that the Roberto Luongo ornament is holding his goal stick firmly and with two hands, so he won’t be losing it. If that seems unrealistic to you, bear in mind that, hanging as he is, there’s always a concern that he’ll choke. So there’s some verisimilitude after all.

Henrik Sedin doesn’t mind hanging from your tree. He’ll take the time to scratch a few books off his reading list.

Don’t expect Daniel Sedin to get bored up there. He’s got a full bag of Swedish candy to keep him company.

As you may know, Jannik Hansen is a honey badger that does what he wants, so he doesn’t quite appreciate being hung from your tree without his permission. But he’ll just have to deal.

And finally, famously docile Alex Edler is cool hanging from your tree. Whatever. As a matter of fact, the renowned napper has already managed to fall asleep.

And if the Canucks aren’t your bag, how about the Green Lantern, tangled in Christmas lights? Because Chloe has that too.
