Make adorable LEGO Valentines for you or your little one’s classmates and friends.
Hello everyone, today I’m sharing details on my latest project: homemade LEGO Valentines! My friend Sarah over at The Created Home recently shared a tutorial for the most adorable thing ever: heart shaped LEGO Valentines. As soon as I saw the project I knew it was the one. This post is less of a tutorial and more of a sharing of work in progress photos I took while putting together the Valentines. For complete details on how to make the LEGO Valentines, be sure to check out Sarah’s tutorial!

Tools and Supplies
The following items are some of the tools and supplies I gathered to make the LEGO Valentines. For a complete list of everything you’ll need, visit the original tutorial here.
- 1 Bag of 1000 Brick pieces
- 10 pack of 16 x 16 dots base plates
- Clear sticker paper
- Velcro squares with sticky back
I made 16 LEGO Valentines and was left with a TON of leftovers. I probably could have made another 16 with the remaining supplies. I had considered buying the bag of 500 pieces but I was worried I might run short on colors.
DIY LEGO Valentines
Here are a few work in progress photos I took while making the LEGO Valentines:
The only point where I deviated from the original tutorial was adding a round over to the edges of the wooden blocks. I rounded over each side. In hindsight I wish I did not round over the bottom edge. The round over on the bottom edge makes the blocks more prone to falling over.
My scrap wood hoarding paid off today. 🤣 I put a small dent in my scrap wood pile. 👌 I’m getting close to finishing up the little Lego Valentines. Rounding over the edges to the blocks. Next step: sanding! 😩 . #router #routing #roundover #scrapwood #rockler #benchcookies #scrapwoodhoarder #kreg #kregmobileprojectcenter #mobileprojectcenter #makita #makitatools #wood #woodworker #woodworking #woodwork #dowoodworking #mfpbehindthescenes #timelapse #maker #makeallthethings #makersgonnamake #legovalentine #crafts #diy #garageshop #alabama #sawdust #sawdustsaturday
I was a little worried about how the clear sticker paper would work with my laser printer, but it printed on the material just fine. I forgot to bump up the settings. My printer is defaulted to print in toner save mode so the text is not as crisp as it could have been.
