Celebrate spring and summer by building your own LEGO flowers! Use your bricks to create your own colorful LEGO garden.
This is such a fun building challenge because kids can use whatever pieces they have to create unique flower designs. It would be fun to do this LEGO building activity with a group and see what everyone comes up with!
We made some tulips and daisies and also just some flowers that aren’t any specific type. It was fun to experiment with different colors and shapes.
I can’t decide which flowers I like best. Really, they just look fun all together with the variety of colors.
Recommended Bricks for Building LEGO Flowers:
We did not use any one particular set for this project.
For stems, you can use 1 x 1 round bricks in green or lime green, or 1 x 1 bricks.
We also used some of these 1 x 1 round plates with 3 leaves.
You can also use green or lime green plates in 1 x 2 or 1 x 3 sizes for leaves.
The blue flower with 8 petals uses eight 1 x 2 plates with a clip on the end and eight 1 x 2 slopes. The petals are attached to a 2 x 2 plate modified with bar frame octagonal.
We attached the flowers to the stems with either 1 x 1 bricks with a stud on the side, or brackets of various sizes.
How to Build LEGO Flowers:
Here’s how I assembled the blue flower. 1 x 2 plate with a clip attach easily to this octagonal plate with bars. This make look like a rare piece, but it’s not. We have bunches of these…
To attach the flower to the stem, I added a 1 x 2 – 2 x 2 bracket on the back. Then the stem can attach to the bracket.
The tulips are so fun to make!
Each tulip needs two 1 x 2 slopes and two 1 x 2 inverted slopes. Use a 1 x 4 brick in the middle to add some height. (The dark purple tulip actually has two 1 x 2 bricks because we couldn’t find a 1 x 4 in that color.)
These next little flowers can be made with very common pieces! Build a stem, and put a 1 x 1 brick at the top. Then find four 1 x 2 plates and two 2 x 2 round plates.
Attach the four 1 x 2 plates to one of the 2 x 2 round plates as shown.
Add a 2 x 2 yellow round plate to the center of the flower. Then attach the flower to the stem.
This simple pink flower is just a 4 x 4 round plate. Attach it to the stem with a 1 x 1 brick with a stud on the side.
And finally, here’s one more option. I attached six 2 x 2 white round plates and then added a 2 x 2 yellow dome to make a daisy type flower.
I used a 1 x 2 – 2 x 2 bracket (inverted) to attach the flower to the stem. Super cute!
Such a beautiful LEGO flower garden!
Here’s another fun spring LEGO idea… build LEGO Spring Mosaics!
You can print the mosaic pattern cards from the post.
We also have instructions for some adorable LEGO Bunnies, Chicks, and Butterflies.
