Lego Art Display

PinExt Lego Art Display

I don’t know if it’s a boy thing or just my kids, but they are not that into arts & crafts. But my boys do love their Lego.

So why not display it. Lego is just as creative as painting or drawing.

beforeframe Lego Art DisplayI found this $4 picture frame during our (Completely Unofficial) Macklemore Thrift Shop Challenge. And thought it would be the perfect display for their Lego creations.

This would also be a great use for a picture frame with broken glass. So don’t throw those old frames out.

frameduring Lego Art DisplayI simply removed the glass, and added some scrapbook paper to it. Then glued 4 flat square Lego pieces into each of the four pictures holes. Took about 3 minutes to make.

The boys are quite proud to have their Lego art on display. It may not be a pretty water-colour painting but it’s still their own art.

    • Thanks so much for such a nice comment! It’s such an easy project, and I’m sure everyone has an old picture frame lying around their house somewhere.

  2. What a fabulous idea! Such an inspiring way to display those smaller creations that seem to get lost on the shelf. Definitely going to try this!

  3. This is awesome!! I can’t wait to try this idea with my boys – I know they will love it! Thanks so much for coming out to the party at Clean and Scentsible. Pinned and I will be featuring it tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  4. I’ve thought of doing something to display Lego art, but hadn’t really come up with a good idea yet. I like this, the only question is how to efficiently attach the Lego art when my son usually make vehicles with wheels.

    • My son added a car on to ours and I just added some square blocks (like 2 or 3 on top of each other, depending on the size of the wheels) to the undercarriage of the car. It raises it up enough so that the wheels don’t hit the flat Lego block, and the square blocks allow you to attach the car to the flat lego piece. I hope that makes sense.

  5. This is an adorable idea!! Legos are the best. Thanks for linking up to The Weekly Creative!

  6. This is awesome! I can also see permanently adhering small plates in each of the photo spaces so you can quick change the display! PINNED IT!

  7. I LOVE it! It turned out great – totally ingenious idea and you are right…. it’s just the sort of thing that little boys will eat right up.
