Lego Rosary

I read about lego rosaries online and decided that it would be the perfect gift for quite a few members of my family.  So, I ordered a ton of little legos and strung them together.  I tried a few different methods to put them together and after a half hour of experimentation, it turned out that the easiest method was the best--Put the legos on the string, tie a not at the end....complicated.  I used round legos for most of the rosary since there was already a hole in them.  Scott was kind enough to drill holes in a 2x2 square and 1x1 square for the rest of the rosary.  Aren't these awesome!




Curly saw that I had the camera out and assumed that it was for her.

  1. Can you share where you purchased the legos? I've wanted to make one of these but wasn't sure where to get the legos.
    Thanks!

  5. There are Lego Stores around that have "Pick-a-Brick" walls were you can pick out exactly which Legos you want.

    1. Hmmm...good question. I don't really remember, but I think I probably attached one small square Lego to the rosary with a big knot holding it on, then I glued the rest of the cross to that Lego.
