Introduction: Minifig Barrette

About: Build.Share.Destroy.Repeat. Follow me and try a few of my projects for yourself!

There needs to me more wearable LEGO accessories. Show everyone your LEGO love away from your building table with a minifig hair barrette (hair clip). This easy to do project can be made in about 30 minutes (depending on your glue/epoxy) and can be customized to no end.

The LEGO Store near me had a huge bin with all kinds of parts to create your own minifig, or you could use a specialty ready-made minifig from a set, or a LEGO keychain with the pin removed.

LEGO purists beware: Minifigs were harmed in making this idea!

materials:
  • LEGO minifigs
  • barrette or hair clip (3-pack at Dollar Store)
tools:
  • sandpaper
  • epoxy
Steps to make your own minifig barrettes:

  • sand and score hair clip and back of minifig to ensure adhesion
  • epoxy legs to torso and head accessory to head (optional: leave head and arm able to swivel)
  • epoxy is messy, protect your work surface with newspaper
  • use 2-part epoxy to affix back of minifig to scored portion of hair clip
  • I used slow-set epoxy, so I let mine set overnight


Have you made your own LEGO jewellery or accessory? I want to see it!

Happy making :)
