Lego Family Portrait DIY
-Shadow box or deep frame (I purchased this on clearance at Michaels)
-Lego minifigs that resemble each family member. I was able to find all my pieces at the Lego store but you can also buy them online. The only hiccup I ran into was that the store didn't carry any dark hair pieces so I had to buy the right hairstyles and paint them using Testors acrylic paint. The minifig forums clearly say to use acrylic paints and not enamel paints. You learn something new everyday.
-Put your minifigs together. You'll notice that Tuan's figurine is holding a camera. There are a bunch of accessories you can order online to personalize your minifigs. I'm lucky I was able to find a womans shirt for my body. I was thisclose to being dressed like a Renaissance lady or scuba diver.
-Print your family name onto the cardstock. I picked a tall font with clean lines to match the frame.
-Mount the minifigs onto the cardstock and frame.
So easy right? This is a great present to make for Lego-lovers. If you love Legos as much as we do, check out this article from Brick Dave on the Top 10 Ways That Legos Are Educational for Your Child.
