INSTRUCTIONS for building lego pencil holder

STEP 1: GATHER LEGO

Lego Pen & Pencil Holder with Memo Pad Holder - LEGO Pencil Pot SuppliesWith LEGO you already have at home, gather up the necessary supplies.  For this pencil holder project, I used a combination of two colors of LEGO bricks - black and white.  However, the LEGO pencil pot can be made with any color combination or build a colorful pencil holder by using multi-color blocks.

This LEGO pen and pencil holder is very versatile.

STEP 2: BASE

How to make Lego Pencil Holder with Memo Pad Holder - Plate PiecesTo make the base of the pencil and memo pad holder, attach base plates together to measure 12 x 14 studs long.

STEP 3: PENCIL HOLDER

The pencil holder is placed on one side of the base plate and consists of 10 rows of bricks.  The memo holder is on the other side and is six bricks high.

To build the pencil holder:

1) Row 1:  Begin with the first color of LEGO and build a rectangle 10 x 12 at one end of the base plate.Lego Pen & Pencil Holder with Memo Pad Holder - First Layer

2) Row 2 & 3: With the second color, build two rows on top of the first row making sure to overlap the bricks.  Three rows are completed.Lego Pen & Pencil Holder with Memo Pad Holder - 2nd & 3rd Layer

3) Row 4: Again place color #1 around the structure.Lego Pen & Pencil Holder with Memo Pad Holder - 4th Layer

4) Row 5 & 6: Color #2.

5) Row 7: Color #1.

6) Row 8 & 9: Color #2.

7) Row 10: Color #1.Lego Pen & Pencil Holder with Memo Pad Holder - 10th LayerThe completed pencil holder.  At this point, you can stop or you could also give the pencil holder a more finished appearance by placing tiles on top.  Tiles are flat LEGO pieces without studs that can be used for decorative purposes.

STEP 4: BUILD MEMO PAD HOLDER
