Have you seen those cute LEGO head storage jars at the store? Every time I’m at the store and see those LEGO storage jars, I wish my kiddos were young enough to have one. Recently, I emptied a square yellow container of corn starch and as I was walking to the recycling bin, it hit me, Hey!, I could make my own DIY repurposed can LEGO Head storage jar for free!
DIY Repurposed Can LEGO Head Storage Container
I spent some time looking up LEGO face expressions to find 4 that I could draw. If you have a bunch of LEGO people around the house, just find 4 with expressions you like.
With the red Sharpie, draw a tongue. Punch the white eyes out of the label with a hole punch and add them to the black eyes you drew. Use the scissors to cut teeth (a simple rectangle) from the label and add it to the mouth.
Don’t worry if you’re not an artist (I can’t draw a stick figure). You can practice drawing the faces on paper first. But they really are simple to draw.
This DIY LEGO Head storage container looks just as good as the Lego Head Storage Container one you can buy.
