Can you believe it’s already the end of 2021?
At the end of every year, we like to get nostalgic for a minute and revisit some of the best moments and Doodles from the past year. As schools re-opened their doors this year, we saw elementary, middle, and high school students return to using 3Doodler in the classroom, with classes ranging from science to the humanities. In May we revamped our Start+ and Create+ plastic refill assortment bringing you new colors and form factors. Finally, in July we launched the 3Doodler Start+, an improved 3D printing pen for our youngest creators – which absolutely took off this holiday season. We’ve been hard at work planning for 2022 and we can’t wait to see everything our community creates next year!
To help you celebrate the New Year in style, we’ve collected a few celebratory stencils and tutorials that will add a pinch of creativity to your festivities as you prepare to ring in the New Year!

We thought now would be the perfect time to put together a few festive holiday projects. Regardless of your age, these hands-on activities are a great way to get your creative juices flowing while adding some seasonal cheer to your room, house, or even classroom! Plus, if you already have a 3D Pen on hand, these projects will prove to be a much more economical option than any off-the-shelf retail options. Last year, we traveled the world through our Doodles, and this year we’ve included some fun facts that you might not have known about Reindeer, Wreaths, and more. Happy Holiday Doodling from the team at 3Doodler!
Doodle Santa’s Reindeer
Nothing says a winter wonderland like a reindeer…..or twelve! These creatures are commonly thought of as pulling Santa’s sleigh. Reindeer are also known as Carabo and live in the Arctic and other northern places in North America and Europe. Both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the Spring and Summer and lose them in the winter. Depending on their exact breed they can weigh as much as 400 lbs. Santa has to have some special magic Reindeer in order for them to get off the ground weighing that much! So what are you waiting for, it’s time to Doodle your own Reindeer.
Ugly Chrismas Sweater
Over the years one of the strangest, yet most adoring Christmas time objects has been the Ugly Christmas Sweater. Usually in different shades of red, white, and green, and made of a weird material, these sweaters have become a staple at holiday parties and family gatherings across the country. Even in places where it’s not cold outside. Thanks to pop culture, movies like “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation”, and cyclical fashion trends Ugly Christmas sweaters don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. To help celebrate this funky tradition, Doodle yourself a little ugly sweater tree ornament.
Put a Wreath On It
The word wreath comes from the word “writhen” which was an old English word meaning “to writhe” or “to twist.” The art of hanging wreaths originated from the Romans who hung wreaths on their doors, not as a Christmas decoration but, as a sign of victory and of their status in society. Today, Christmas wreaths are made by twisting and bending evergreen branches into a large circle which is then decorated. The circle shape of the wreath is made to represent Christ’s eternal love, his strength, and the creation of new life. Evergreens are the tree of choice for these creations because of their heartiness throughout harsh winters and that they denote strength as well as immortality. Instead of crafting a wreath with traditional evergreen branches this year, try to Doodle it. Doodle the branches and weave them together!
