Few days ago I wrote a super easy LEGO fridge magnets LEGO fridge magnets tutorial.
Here is a selection of the best DIYs with LEGO.
1) The very first LEGO DIY project I made with my boyfriend as a Christmas gift for friends. It is a series of key rings combined with each other, so that you can bring only the necessary keys. Put the plate just close to the entrance: you won’t lose your keys anymore!
The project is by Felix Grauer, member of Äbsolut Office collective, dealing with architecture and urban art projects. LEGO Combine your keys project by Felix Grauer
2) Maybe this is not the right season, but you could not miss the amazing MiniEco snowglobe! LEGO snowglobes by Mini Eco
3) Do you like crocheting? You can download this pattern for your next blanket or use it for a custom project! LEGO inspired crochet patterns by Andrea Baker | All Things Bright and Beautiful
4) Handmade Charlotte blog is a great inspiration to me: recycle baby food (or marmalade) glass jars to make pencil holders. Create many, each with a different face expression: take inspiration from minifigures faces found on Google Images. LEGO Pencil holder by Handmade Charlotte
5) Do you want to impress your son, a friend’s son or your boyfriend who still play with LEGO? Next birthday use this box to package the gift! LEGO gift boxes with free template by Lines Across
6) The USB flash drive that every nerd should have: build it and you will feel like Mac Gyver. LEGO USB stick by Apartment Therapy
7) For the series “Even nerds have a heart”, a necklace to share with your partner, reminiscent of the ones with the two halves of the same heart, the must have gift of every teenager in love (at least in my generation). LEGO Heart necklace by Sillie Smile
Where to buy LEGO parts?
If you do not have a chance to go to Copenhagen, you can visit the LEGO online store, where you can find also single LEGO bricks.
For the key holder project I bought all the material from BrickLink.
If you do not want to spend any money you have two options: if you were already a fan as a child, you can go find your old figures and bricks… or you can plunder the collection of your child / your nephew – at your own risk!
