Every year, some of my most popular posts are the ones for which Ho creates the seasonal artwork.

Ho, my old friend and consummate blog-toonist in residence has provided festive illustrations and Diary of an Internet Nobody Christmas cards for the last few years, but this year he’s outdone himself with a fantastic do it yourself Christmas tree decoration. I’ll pass you over to the artist himself for the all-important instructions.

Ladies and gentlemen, here’s Ho:

” Step One – Print out the image at approximately A4 size. (If you don’t have a printer, visit a library or someone bored in an office). There is a nice colourful version, or a black and white one so you can have fun colouring in the Trump-fairy yourself.

Step Two – With scissors, carefully cut around the outline of the main shape and the Trump-fairy’s head. You may want to ask an adult to help you with this. Do NOT cut the Trump-fairy’s throat, however tempting this may be.

Step Three – Cut along the dotted lines and fold around so that the slits interlock.

Step Four – Fold back the Trump-fairy’s wing sections at the half-way point, to make them nice and flappy.

Step Five – Cut out the Trump-fairy’s hat, cut a slit at the dotted line, and pop it on his head.

Step Six – Impale the Trump-fairy through the arse (or hang) on the top of your Xmas tree. Hey Presto ! Your Xmas Trump-fairy Tree Decoration is finished.

Why not send us photos of your impaled / hung Trump-fairy, we’d love to see them.

{Should you, for some strange reason, not wish to display a Trump-fairy on your Xmas tree, they also make excellent (if brief) candles. You will therefore be carrying on the grand tradition, initiated by a legion of students, of ‘lighting your own Trump’.}

A Ho-made festive product, you’re welcome. Happy Solstice   xx “
