How to make Lego storage jars

Lego in my home is HUGE! We have a rather large cupboard full of it and we are forever trying to find storage solutions for them like this LEGO head storage jar tutorial. We have allot of special bits that we like to keep separated from our massive stockpile of Lego, such as unique figures, small parts and rare Lego pieces. What better way to store them, than with your own Lego themed jars that you can proudly display.

To make our Lego Jars 


  • Assorted glass jars
  • Lego figures
  • Yellow spray paint
  • Strong Glue.
