Ever feel like wearing a LEGO necklace?

If you ask my 6-year-old daughter Natalie that question she’ll answer, YES!

So we made one.

These special necklaces are so fun and easy to make. Natalie decided to make her necklace with a magenta LEGO brick — she’s obsessed with magenta — and we were able to make it in just a few hours (including prep and baking time). She’s been wearing her necklace ever since.

Try this DIY as a playdate project, or an activity during a LEGO-theme birthday party!

Step 6: Take your prepared (kneaded) polymer clay in your choice of colour and press it into the mould. Make sure to press firmly down, so that the clay will enter all the nooks and crannies of the mould.

Step 7: Release the clay form the mold (this is where the pliability of the mould comes in handy, so you can work it out) and insert the eye pin into the top of the clay, orienting the pin so that when the necklace is strung through the hole, the LEGO brick will be straight. Place into the oven face up for 40 minutes at 135ºC.
