Lego Necklace Tutorial



My son recently had his 6th birthday, we had a pool party and invited his friends. He wanted a “Lego theme” party. So after I searched for affordable Lego party favors I realized it was too expensive for 19 kids! So I made my own Lego party favors.


Square Lego Bricks

Ribbon or Durable String

Drimmel Tool or Drill

Vise Grips


Gather all your supplies together.  If you are good with the drimmel tool or drill great (I am not so my husband drilled all the holes for me) Over a bucket my husband drilled and holding the Lego Brick in a vise grip he drilled a hole straight through.

Once all the holes are drilled thread the sting through and tie a knot at both ends forming a necklace.

For the girls I used pink ribbon white ribbon for the girls.

Once threaded…………..

I put each Lego Necklace in a Ziploc bag and added the Lego Man Coloring page in each bag.
