DIY Lego Head Storage Container

Upcycle a laundry container into a cute Lego Head to store all of the loose Legos, and hopefully keep them off the floor!

  • a large container of some sort cheese balls, laundry detergent
  • yellow spray paint buy the kind made for plastic
  • black vinyl


  • Clean out and remove the labels from the containers. Spray paint the containers yellow, because plastic can be tricky to spray paint, I often let the containers dry overnight between coats, giving each container 2-3 coats. Make sure you spray paint the lid too.
  • After the container is dry, trace the Lego Face in your Design program, or print it out and trace it onto the back of vinyl and cut it out. It is a simple design, so it will be really easy to trace and cut out even if you don’t have a cutter.
  • Weed out the excess vinyl. For this project, since the transfer tape can pull up the spray paint and because it is such a simple design, I apply the pieces on at a time to the Lego container, but if transfer tape is easier, go for it!
  • Store your Legos inside! I love having a cute Lego themed place to keep our Legos.
