There’s nothing that puts me in a childlike mood quite like running my hands through a bin of LEGO and hearing that unique plastic-y brick sound. Here’s a fun way to remind yourself of that childish feeling at home every day by putting your LEGO on display.
This DIY has three basic steps:
1. Go find your stash of LEGO or hit up a LEGO store and buy a bin of LEGO from the “Pick-a-brick” wall. It costs $14.99 for the larger size and you can buy them online too. For this particular DIY, I went and bought some more of the lime green and teal LEGO pieces because I only had a few. HINT: Keep the container! If you bring it back again, you’ll get a .50 discount for recycling.
2. Organize your LEGO on a table by color. Honestly, this is the thing that takes the longest. Especially with those tiny bricks!
3. Grab your glass vase and start to fill! You might want to try and space your bricks out to get the most depth. What I mean by that is the really little one-by bricks will fill in between the spaces of a bunch of two-by-two bricks, so try to keep those as separated as possible.
All you have to do now is put it on display and see how many people comment on it. (Or try to run their fingers through it!)
