LEGO mini-figures are small, cheerful icons that take in everything from astronauts and pirates to Indiana Jones. They are surprisingly versatile as well, and, with a little effort, you can turn a mini-figure into an unusual, eye catching necklace.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • LEGO mini-figure
  • Necklace chain
  • Necklace hook
  • Jewelery drill
  • Desk vice
  • Craft glue
  • Tweezers

  1. 1

    Clamp the desk vice to the desk.

  2. 2

    Open the desk vice enough to slide the mini-figure in, head-up, and then close it so the mini-figure is held securely.

  3. 3

    Position the jewelery drill over the centre of the top of the mini-figure's head and drill down approximately 7mm. Then remove the drill and carefully blow or wipe the shavings from the hole.

  4. 4

    Carefully apply glue to the necklace hook and slide it into the hole using the tweezers. Leave it there until the glue bonds with the sides of the hole.

  5. 5

    Once the glue is dry, carefully lock the necklace hook onto the chain and open the desk vice. The necklace is now complete.

Tips and warnings

  • Check that the necklace hook is a size that will fit into the drill hole.
  • If you don't want to use a drill, carefully wrapping the chain under the arms of the mini-figure or gluing it around the neck will also work.
