Lego Figure Display

While looking around Pinterest awhile ago I found this idea to display Lego Figures.  Gotta love Pinterest.  When we went to Disney over the summer, I bought some single 2x4 bricks with the intention of making one for Ian. Fast forward a few months and I finally made it 2 days before Christmas.  It was super easy and didn't take that long.

For this project I used...
11x14 Frame (purchased at AC Moore)
E6000
ruler
30 Lego Bricks (I used 2x4 pieces, you could use smaller 2x4 ones, too)
Poster Paper (dollar store)


I first played around with placement and asked Ian what he thought.  I also had him bring down a couple figures he wanted to display on it. 
Ian only wanted 3 lines of single bricks and 1 long one along the bottom.  He was excited he could display his bigger special pieces along with the others.
Once I figured out where I wanted the pieces I glued the legos with E6000 directly to the glass.  I glued the legos directly to the glass instead of the poster paper, because I thought it would stand up over time better.  I knew Ian will be taking the figures off once in a while and didn't want him ripping the paper.  I also glued the long piece together first before I glued it to the glass.  Then I cut a piece of poster board down to size (using the mat that was provided as a template) to place behind the glass. 

Ian is very happy he can display his special Lego Figures now.

What a cute idea! Both of my boys love Legos, but they wouldn't let their minifigures be displayed for too long, though. They'd be dying to play with them :)

This is such a good idea, I can't wait to make one with my littlest guy. We have so many Legos!

I love it! So many of our Lego creations end up pulled apart in big bins. This is such a nice way to display them!

LOVE this! I have three boys and I'm in desperate need to organize their millions of Legos. I like how their toys can double as decor/ art work. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day!
