The Wreath of Khan

The Wreath of Khan

Fans of puns and Star Trek had better be on red alert. I present to you, The Wreath of Khan!

Conceived by illustrator Josh Ellingson, this Ricardo Montalbán-enclosing holiday garland is a quick and easy project for the Trekker home. And once it’s up, you get the pleasure (if not the obligation) to muster your best, “Khaaaaan!” whenever you pass it.


A link to the Khan image used for this wreath can be found all over the internet. Once you’ve completed your own Khan wreath, I suggest printing up extra Montalbáns so that you can add Khans to other worthy wreaths you encounter. If Andre the Giant has a posse, shouldn’t Khan have an army of wreaths?

For those of you less inclined to combine Ricardo Montalbán and shrubbery, Josh is also selling his inspired combo in button form.
