Hit the Bricks
Our favorite toy isn't just for building houses, now it's for decorating them, too! Inspired by the cool designs and artwork inside the new Legoland Hotel near San Diego, we asked the masterminds at the Lego workshop to create these vases just for us!
All you need to make your vase: These standard Lego pieces and our easy-to-follow tutorial.
It should take you about 20 minutes -- if the kids help!
You've made the vase, now fill it! Use real flowers or complete the theme with brick blooms. These are the pieces you need to make the stem.
Make the Stem
Stack green cylinder blocks and a "leaf" piece (in any order) over a brown stem. Keep stacking until your stem is long enough to fit in the vase.
Petal to the Metal
To finish the flower, these are the pieces you'll need.
Make the Bloom
Starting with the base (1), connect four petals (2), then a center disk (3). Flip it over and attach an anchor block (4). With a connector block, attach the bloom to the stem (5).
How simple and sweet is that?
Quick tip: Did you know the Star Wars X-Wing starfighter, the world's biggest Lego model, recently landed in NYC's Time Square? The larger-than-life spacecraft is made of 5.3 million bricks and weighs 48,000 pounds!
