Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Have you made or purchased gifts yet?
If you are looking for a last-minute homemade gift idea for your kids, or their school friends, then these fun LEGO friendship bracelets are sure to be loved by whoever receives them.
What you need:
- Flat LEGO bricks
- Drill and 3/32″ drill bit
- Embroidery thread (three colors per brick)
How to make
Using a drill and the 3/32″ drill bit, drill 2 holes in each LEGO brick.
Tip: Stack a few LEGO bricks on top of each other and drill through a few at once.
Cut embroidery thread in a few different colors to one length. I used 4 strands of thread in 3 different colors. Put all of the colors together and fold them in half. Thread the loop through one of the holes.
Pull the loose strands through the loop you have formed once pulling part of the thread through the hole. Pull the thread tight.
Separate the three colors and braid them until about 1.5 inches of thread remains. Tie a knot at the base of the braid.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the other side of the LEGO brick.
Repeat the above steps for any further LEGO bracelets you want to make.
These LEGO friendship bracelets would also make a great activity and party favor for a LEGO party, a great gift to make for Friendship Day, or homemade stocking stuffer for the holidays.
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day surrounded by the ones you love.
