lego board

my nephew loves legos…
(i made the lego felt mat for him.)
anyways i had his name for christmas…
and we were supposed to do homemade gifts…
but the older you get–the harder it gets.
so this is about as homemade as it gets…
the things you need (plus paint and glue..and vinyl…and some other tupperware containers i added at the last minute.
minus the handles.
okay…let’s just say this supply list is lacking…..

this board is actually from the bottom of my daughter’s crib…just cut off a piece to size.

paint…this was done…oh the night before we exchanged gifts. i’m awesome like that.

i bought two lego boards (long story….but one was supposed to be green and one was blue..)

i glued them to the board…make sure the legos are facing the proper way…

then I added velcro…industrial……

this white tupperware is found at walmart…they had all sizes….

then i just slap them on…

okay…orginal plans were two handles–one on each side..

but it turns out i’m a sucky planner. and i opened them up oh about 10 oclock at night. and the screws were wayyyy to long for the board.

and so it got scratched and instead i cut out some vinyl

my computer won’t even open my silhouette studio–so i cut these out by hand. so in case you were wondering…you don’t HAVE to have a cutter…just makes it faster!

i also included a sculpey lego head zipper pull–and a lego tie tack.

i bought these earring  backs for the tie tack (so they don’t poke the poor boy!) and just an earring post glued onto a lego.
