Use LEGO® bricks to build a seasonal decoration!
We’ve been decorating for fall with… LEGO®! Who knew that LEGO® could look good with home decor?
I found this shadow box on clearance at Michael’s ($7.00) and thought it might be fun for creating a fall tree with LEGO®s. Then at Christmas time, we can build a Christmas tree.
This shadow box is a 9 x 9 square. I don’t know if Michael’s will still be carrying this exact type since it was on clearance, but I’m sure you can find something similar at Michael’s, another craft store, or Amazon.
First, Gresham and I sorted through our LEGO®s and found all the brown pieces we could find, plus 2 x 1 bricks in yellow, orange, and red.
Gresham and I built the tree together. We had to keep fiddling with it to get it to fit inside the shadow box, but I think it turned out really well! Aidan built the hill for the tree to stand on.
We won’t have real fall leaves to look at until November, so it’s fun to have LEGO® leaves!
What can you build in your shadow box?
