Step 1: Get the Lego Minifig Ready to Go

Okay, take your lego minifig and tell him that you are going to turn him into a necklace

once you are done that, position his arms straight in front of him

stick your thumb in between his arms, and push either way to pop his arms off

Step 2: Done!

now take your de-armed minifig, and take the end of the necklace chain or string, and stick it through the arm holes, both sides.

pull it through, and if you've got a clasping chain, you are done

if you have a string, tie it securely so that minifig doesn't fall off.

There, you are all done!

For added customization and personalization, you can change the minifig's face, hair or legs without taking him off the chain

have fun and post comments please!

    you could take him apart and drill a hole in his head then you could put a head pin through him and form a loop at the top to put the thread through.i love the idea :D

    Thanks for publishing. This tutorial looks good, but needs pictures to really shine on the site. What tends to happen is that instructables without pictures get lost in the crowd and don't see many hits. I've unpublished this instructable for now. Would you mind getting pictures of the process (if it's really difficult, you can find pictures that fit well enough on Google and use them) and resubmitting after you've edited them in?
