Are you looking for a fast and easy Valentine’s Day build for your LEGO®-lover? Look no further because you can build your own LEGO® heart for Valentine’s Day! These small LEGO® hearts have just 15 pieces and are easy to make.  The possibilities for these are endless!  You can make them in any color that LEGO® bricks come in and, better yet, you can make them multi-colored.  Want a rainbow colored heart?  No problem!  How about a striped heart? Sure thing! Let your imagination run wild on these.  They’re also great if you want to give these out to friends!

To make your own, you’ll need:

  • 6 – 2×1 slope 45 bricks
  • 4 – 2×1 slope 45 inverted bricks
  • 2 – 1x1x2/3 slope 30
  • 1 – 1×2 brick
  • 1 – 1×4 brick
  • 1 – 1×8 brick

The coolest part about these hearts is that they’re actually build upside down!  That’s right!  That’s why we can get such a true heart shape from block-y bricks.

Step 1: Take the 2 – 1x1x2/3 slope 30 bricks and 2 – 2×1 slope 45 bricks.  Place the slope 30 bricks on top of the slope 45 bricks and then flip them upside down as shown below.Build Your Own LEGO® Heart

Step 2: Grab two more of the 2×1 slope 45 bricks and the 1×2 brick, flip them upside down and place them as shown below (they’re the blue bricks in the picture).Build Your Own LEGO® Heart
