Gift idea...

I really had to pick my brain this year on what to make for my 11 year old son. He is at that age where I have sewn just about everything he would want and is in that sort of a kid sort of older place in his life but I still wanted to make something for him. I always make something for the kids at Christmas- and they like to make things for us as well. We are big believers in the handmade gift here! One thing he loves to do pretty much all of the time is Legos. After much thought I came up with this:

I found this box full of smaller boxes and I lined each one with fun paper. Then I hot glue gunned the ribbon on to hang it. The idea is that he hang it on the wall to display some of the lego figures in his collection. I am happy with how it turned out and I hope he loves it! And with that, I may actually be done with the gift part of Christmas! Now if the kids would just get healthy so we could go do some fun winter break activities!! I am itching to go ice skating!

OhMyGoodness! How brilliant! My oldest boy just turned 7, and he has a huge collection of these lil Lego guys all in a box! He would love this!
Thanks so much for sharing this! I hope I can find something similar to personalize for him soon :)
hugs, margie

Great idea! I am in the same boat with my son (10) I might have to use that for his B-day in January.

Great idea Mo! Sort of reminds me of the little cubbies at the lego store. We could use that too because we're always losing a helmet, visor, arm etc down heater vents and into doggy mouths.

So nice. He will love it. I love all the little cubbies for him to show off his legos.

Happy Holidays.

what a wicked display! Very creative and the colors are perfect. Might steal this idea from you when my lego monster gets a bit bigger.
