Now I Have a Die Hard Christmas Ornament. Ho-Ho-Ho.

As many of you know, I don’t just think Die Hard is the greatest Christmas film of all time, I regard it as humanity’s crowning artistic achievement. Does Hamlet have an explosion in a lift shaft? No. Is the Mona Lisa smiling enigmatically because she’s an exceptional thief? Of course not. It’s brilliant on every level. And there are lots of levels because it’s set in a BLOODY GREAT SKYSCRAPER.

So as the festive season approaches faster than a dead body plummeting towards Sgt Al Powell’s windscreen, I turned to the interweb to see if I could buy a suitably themed ornament to hang on the Christmas tree. My theory was that if I already own it, it makes the negotiations with my wife (who isn’t emotionally 12 years old) about where to hang it slightly easier.

And then I found instructions on how to make this beauty:A lovely 3D rendering of John McClane discovering what a TV dinner feels like and lamenting coming out to the coast to have a few laughs.

It’s brilliantly easy to make and will fill any room with explodey, sweary festive cheer. The full instructions and template, by Kiwicupcake, are available to download here.

Let me know if you have a go at making it, I’d love to see the results.

Right, I’ve got to go and buy some more kitchen foil before my wife comes home from work…
