This easy Lego minifigure display can be made in under an hour, using supplies from the dollar store!
A few months ago, I was challenged by my friend Christina at The DIY Mommy to transform my kids’ playroom on a $100 budget. You can check out my Modern Kids Playroom Makeover here.
To stay under $100 for this room makeover, I needed to use what I had on hand. All my kids love Lego, so I thought it would be fun to create a Lego minifigure display. I’ve seen these at the Lego store and online but they’re pretty pricey, and I knew that I could make something similar for less.
Supplies to make a Lego Minifigure Display
I had most of these supplies on hand, but you can find them at the dollar store! You’ll need:
- A wood panel (craft section of the dollar store)
- Painters tape to mark a grid
- 12 Screws
- 12 2×4 Lego bricks
- 12 Lego minifigures
First, I marked out a grid on the wood panel with Painters Tape.
Next, I made pilot holes in the wood panel and the Lego bricks. Then, screwed the brick into the panel.
This was the kids’ favourite part, designing their Lego minifigures! We just placed them on the bricks, knowing they would change them up the minute they came home. Honestly, they changed up everything on these shelves the minute they came home. I guess my creations weren’t cool enough for the ;)
What do you think of this budget friendly Dollar Store Lego Minifigure Display? I think it turned out pretty awesome and the kids just love it!
