After the fun of building is over, show off your creation with one of these Lego display ideas! Here are 15 different options to buy or DIY!
My son has built dozens of Lego creations over the years, and most of them end up in a bin or box when he's finished playing with them. But there are some builds that he's really proud of, and I'm always searching for ways to display them in his room.
Some of these Lego display ideas double as work surfaces, so you don't have to gingerly move a delicate build to a new location. Others protect the project from dust, so you don't accidentally knock off a crucial piece!
Don't forget about those minifigures! Some characters are rare and others are just fun to arrange in a simple display. There are plenty of options to show off your favorites in this list!
