Simple Lego Wall Shelf

Introduction: Simple Lego Wall Shelf

In this Instructable I will show you how to make a wall shelf out of legos. There are 7 steps for which I have broken down for you. The final product length is 12-13 inches. 

Parts
2 push pins
4x2 flat:  6
6x2 flat:  72
8x2 flat:  4
1x6 flat:  4
1x8 flat:  1
The parts can be substituted for different lengths, but these are the pieces I used.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Row 1

You will need 21 pieces of 6x2's. Align them in a neat row face down.

Step 2: Row 2

You will need 20 -6x2's Attach them on the top of the first row. Use the picture for reference.

Step 3: Row 3

You will need 16 -6x2's Attach them on the top of the second row. Use the picture for reference. Note the spaces between the pieces.

Step 4: Row 4

You will need 6 -6x2's, 2 -4x2's, and 1 -8x2. Attach them on the top of the  third row. Use the picture for reference. Place the push pins in their space.

Step 5: Row 5

You will need 2 -6x2's, 2 -4x2's, and 2 -8x2. Attach them on the top of the fourth row. Use the picture for reference. These pieces secure the push pin in place.

Step 6: Rail

The rail keeps objects from falling off the side and gives it a nice look. I used 7 -6x2's, 2 -4x2's, 4 -6x1's, and 1 -8x1. Place the rail in between the last two rows of bumps. Place the side rail (4x2 piece) on each side. Look at pictures.

Step 7: Finished Product

You are now finished. Attach this to the wall to show off your special possessions. The reason for the extra rows is for support. I've made this 3 years ago and put various stuff on it. It has never broken and is very strong. Caution: never put this too low to the floor as children may try to remove it and poke themselves with the push pins. Leave comments and any questions you have.

P.S. Help the bears take over the world!!! World Domination.

    I got the bears at Hobby Lobby 3 years ago, but according to coolbeanz9989 it seems that they still sell them.

    I got the bears at some craft store in Virginia. I don't remember the name because it was years ago, but it was some small store. It's not Michaels. There is no brand name on the bears.
