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.
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).
Step 3: Take two more 2×1 slope 45 bricks and your 1×4 brick, flip them upside down and place them on top of the bricks you placed in step 2 (shown in the picture below).
Step 4: Flip the 1×8 brick upside down and place on top of the row you placed in step 3.
Step 5: Take the 2×1 slope 45 inverted bricks and place them as shown in the picture below to complete your heart. Ta da! Easy, right?
