Introduction: Lego Minifigure Bracelet

I'm seeing a lot of Lego jewelry these days, including quite a bit here on Instructables. I decided to jump on the band wagon and make some, and the first thing I thought of was a bracelet made of minifigures. I looked around but i couldn't find any instructions on how to make one, so I designed one myself.


Step 1: What You Need:

- Some Lego minifigures
- 2 Lego 1x1 round bricks
- Leather cord, thin enough to fit through a 1/8" hole
- Glue (I used hot glue because I wanted to get mine done fast, but if you aren't impatient like me it would probably be better to use something else.)
- Scissors
- Drill or rotary tool
- 1/8" drill bit
- Leather cord, thin enough to fit through a 1/8" hole

Step 2: Prep

-Snap the arms off the minifigures.
- Cut a piece of leather cord that fits around your wrist. Line up the arms and bodies of the minifigures along the cord to get a feel for what the spacing will be on the bracelet.
- Look through the arm sockets of the minifigures. Some will probably go straight through the whole body, but some will have a chunk of plastic in the way. Drill through that plastic.

Step 3: Putting It All Together

- Thread one rounded brick onto the end of the leather cord with the stud side facing the end of the cord. Put a drop of glue on the end of the cord to stop it being pulled back through the brick.
- Get the pieces of one minifigure. Glue one arm onto the cord. Then thread on the body.
- Leave a little bit of wiggle room, then glue on the next arm. You have now attached one minifigure. Repeat for the others. (My spacing was a bit off because I hurried; try and make sure the minifigures are evenly spaced along the cord.)
- Once all of the minifigures are on the cord, thread the other rounded brick onto the cord with the stud facing inward. Glue the rounded brick to the cord.
- Connect the two rounded bricks together to fasten the bracelet.
- Show off your awesome minifig bracelet!

    I have to check my Lego people. Is there enough room on their bodies to raise their arms up an drill a hole under the arms for the cord to go through? I want one of these for my Lego jewelry collection. Thanks
