Easy DIY Lego Mini Figure DisplayFriday, October 23, 2015
Today my friend Branson from My Reflection of Something is here to share a fun little DIY project for mamas of lego lovers! I love a good project, and when it serves the function of keeping toys organized that is a win-win! You can find some other fun projects she has been working on recently on her blog, like her Monster Preschool Fun and a Fall Fishbowl Greeting Card for the kiddos to make!
Call me crazy, but wasn't playing Legos all about what could be built out of the actual blocks when we were kids? Sure, we had a couple Lego figures, but it wasn't the focus. Now, however, there are new mini figures being released all the time. And my boy? He loves them all! Have you seen them sold in the little "blind" packaging where it is supposed to be a surprise which one you get when you open it? Well, one of my husband's many talents is being able to feel through the pack to figure out which one is inside. So, between him and Aiden, they have quite the collection.
I have to admit, some of them are pretty cute! And the fact that there is such a fun variety makes it seem wrong somehow to just toss them in a little drawer when they aren't being used. So, I decided he needed some sort of display for these little treasures that he is so fond of.
I found an old shelf at our local thrift shop (I think I paid 50 cents for it!) and it was super simple to turn it in to a Lego display! I painted it red, at Aiden's request, and decided to take off the boards on the back that made it look more like a shelf that belonged in a country kitchen. Then it was just a matter of gluing in some of the flat Lego pieces so that he could stand his figures on them. You will definitely want to use plenty of hot glue, as it will spread to fill all of the holes on the bottom of the Lego.
