Have yourself a merry little Christmas with the fashion forward tree-decorating tips from the White House.

What's hot this year? Why, 3-D printing, of course.

The White House held a holiday 3-D printing contest and received over 300 submissions. There were five winners, and each one will be showcased on a different tree in the White House.

Here are the five winners:

Library of Congress

Created by: Vicky Somma, Occoquan, Virginia

"The design for Vicky’s entry was inspired by one of her family’s favorite destinations in Washington, D.C. - the Reading Room in the Library of Congress' Jefferson Building."

Star of Bliss

Created By: Roy Eid, Houston, Texas

"Much like the way this ornament was created, through the mirroring and patterning of a simple line, the Star of Bliss signifies how a small act of kindness can transform and spread to create a wonderful, positive outcome."
