  • How to make a Lego bracelet. Lego Man Cuff!!! - Step 1
    Step 1

    make sure that your sheet of lego will roll around your wrist as a cuff, and the plastic shrinks when you heat it so check first! mine was a shee so i had to cut it up, i snapped it then cut it so it had rounded edges etc.

    i used a nail file, but sand it back a bit so that it's smooth.

    dont worry if where youve sanded/cut it is white, when you boil it this will go away. (bad pic but ...)

    Step 4

    boil the water and put in the lego sheet. it takes a while for it to soften up, just watch it and check it so that it doesnt melt, it took around 3 minutes for mine, but i had a bit of trouble.

    once you have bent it into the right shape for your wrist, put it in the cold water.

    Step 6

    get your lego man ready with his bits and pieces, mines a robin hood/merry men one :D
    glue gun him all together so you dont lose any pieces when youre wearing your cuff. i filled his torso with glue too.

    Step 7

    sadly, you cant interchange pieces onto your cuff, as the plastic shrinks in the hot water. so you have to glue your little guy right on there. i make mine lie down a bit, just to keep him from hooking onto stuff :D so there you go :D enjoy!

it has to be really hot, and takes a lot of work, its a bit tricky; i think by memory when i did it last had to shape each end at separate times, put it back in the hot water for a bit, its important so then you can get the right shape for the wrist. thats probably the trickiest bit, but after some practice and doing it a heap of times you get used to how long it takes to get soft etc.

I love it, i want to make lego jewlery for years, but never knew how.
The bad thing is, i don't have any, my brother and sister do, but they'll kill me if i use that. I want to have a bracelet like this when i go out tomorrow though

This is great :D I love lego so much but I don't know if I would ever be able to cut it up :'( I love my lego far too much and refuse to let mum give it away now that I'm older!
