Handmade Christmas Gift #1

This year, as in years past, I am trying to make at least one thing for each of my kids for Christmas. My almost 7 year old is obsessed with Legos so what better to make him than a Lego table. He loves to free build all sorts of buildings. I think a Lego table will ofter him a great place to do that.

I ordered 4 Lego Plates (10x10) from the Lego store and a white Lack side table from Ikea. Since I ordered on Black Friday the table was only $4.99...score! Using E-6000 glue, I glued each base plate onto the table creating a large square. Make sure if you decide to try this that the room is well ventilate because E-6000 stinks but it will hold forever!

I think this little project turned out great. It took me less than 10 minutes to glue down the base plates and assemble the table. I can't wait to see my big guy's face on Christmas morning!

I will be sharing other gift ideas over the next couple weeks as I finish them. So stay tuned!

Have a crafty week,
