LEGO Brick Necklace Tutorial {& Fiskafriends Blog Hop}

The Introduction:

The Hop Order:
You can find the full blog hop order on the Fiskafriends blog.

The Project:
I was able to attend a few Fiskateer events and at one of them we created LEGO necklaces. One of my sons recently had a LEGO themed birthday party and LEGO brick necklaces were the perfect addition to the goodie bags.

With a Fiskars craft drill, these necklaces take less than a minute each to create:
Simply drill through one side of the LEGO brick, thread with twine, and you are done!

My Prize:
In addition to the sponsored prizes that are up for grabs, I've decided to host a little giveaway of my own! (Just add LEGO bricks and you can make LEGO necklaces, too!)
The winner will receive:
- a Fiskars craft drill
- a spool of Mandarin twine
- a spool of Peapod twine

This is such a cute,crafty idea. I have children (older) and now grandchildren, especially the grandsons who are Lego afficianados. This is a wonderful blog hop and way to celebrate our Fiskateer friendships. Thank you! I've been posting as Rhonda with my url on the other blogs,but some won't let me so here goes!

Wow-I had forgotten all about these necklaces. Thank you so much for reminding me. My house is overrun with Legos-I need to see if I can make a bunny one for Easter.

Karen Poirier-Brode said...

Love the post. Since I already own 2 drills and too much twine do not put me in the drawing for those. Obviously, I think it's a great prize! As a fellow Lego fan I think the idea is perfect.

*gasping* drilling a lego is almost sacrilege at our house....that being said might have to raid the kids lego stash! Cute necklace!
