Generally, balcony decoration is a concept that you reflect your pleasure into the balcony, and choosing suitable objects, such as a lego planter, means having a fascinating place. The lego planter is likely a more enjoyable one. Lego planter is a colorful decor made by hand by being used lego pieces and soil and also a meaningful home activity with your children. In this article, I am going to write about lego planter and its different decor models. Also, in terms of giving a clue for you, there will be a heading called “do it yourself” at the end of the article.
Before the lego planter, there are a lot of home objects made out of lego pieces. For instance, they are pencil boxes, money boxes, and so forth. These creative ideas are as considerable as a lego planter. If we return to the main point, lego planter is not only outdoor decoration but also indoor decoration. Inside the home, you can place a lego planter, for example, showcase, table, work desk so on. Meanwhile, there are three different lego planters for both outdoor decoration and indoor decoration. They break down into mini lego planter, lego vase, and lego container as an aesthetic look.
1) Do it yourself
Below this heading, I will share tools and materials and help you to do it yourself turning lego pieces into a planter. Have good work!
a) Materials and Tools
You will need:
- Lego pieces,
- Soil and plant or flowers
- Pour all of the lego pieces into the place where you would work.
- Prepare a large rectangle foundation.
- Start assembling the pieces one by one.
- As a recommendation, build the lego planter slowly by making layers first.
- As for color choices, you can prefer a solid-colored planter. I think it could get boring after a certain amount of time passed.
- You can give a try for vivid multi-colored lego pieces.
- If your lego pieces are not new and worn-out, you can use the glue for assembling them.
- Having made the mold, you can pour the soil into it in a way that you mind the flower or use it as a planter holder box.
Mini Lego Planter
Mini lego planter is simple and pratic beside its cute look for balcony decoration. These kinds of decorative planters generally match perfectly with coconut planters and soda can planters. Especially, their shapes are either rectangular or square. Plants without a flower are usually suitable for a mini lego planter. Above all, succulents aloe vera, cactus, bonsai, and little desert plant are certainly going to stand chic in the mini lego planter.
Outside of its simplicity, it is a meaningful activity you would spend time with your children. The benefits of making a mini lego planter with your child do not finish by counting one by one. First of all, it develops your child’s all aspects of thinking skills. Secondly, they catch a clue about architecture without knowing. Lastly, thanks to its therapeutic effect, it reduces the cortisol roaming in your body. What is more, it boosts serotonin and dopamine. In other words, your child will acquire remarkable skills and nature love and its sustainable responsibility with the making of a mini lego planter.
Lego vase can be a great place for plants with a flower or just a flower. To illustrate, these could be a tulip, daisy, rose, violet, and so forth. In addition, it can be a great decor with an animal planter with a different figure. This type of decor suits indoor decoration rather than outdoor decoration.
Lego vase is the medium size among three types. But, there is the only thing to do is to buy a few lego pieces and a little soil. No doubt, a lego vase will incorporate a color inside your balcony. It is up to you how beautiful a vase you would make. You can make every layer of the vase a single color or varicolored. If you adjust the correct combination of the lego pieces, you could reach your goal. If you make a lego vase meticulously though and decent, the lego vase is waterproof. However, it should be away from extreme heat.
The Lego container is the largest one of all others. It is the one that requires much effort alongside your patience and just like assembling 3,000 jigsaw pieces. Importantly, you have to decide its exact position for a lego container. So, this sort of container belongs to the balcony decoration. Because having finished the work, it will get as heavy as a gabion planter. Besides that, the same warnings that I noted above are valid for a lego container.
