We have divided this fun project into three parts.

  • Lego giraffe
  • The lego trees
  • The flowery lego plate ground


1) Making lego giraffe


1) Connect the 1×2 yellow and brown lego brick to form the legs of giraffe.

3) Now connect seven alternative yellow and brown 2×2 lego bricks to form the neck of giraffe

4) To form the face connect xxx lego plate and xxx lego plate in yellow.

5) The square studs in brown and circular red studs are used to form the eyes and horns of the giraffe.

6) Finally a brown tail is made with the two uneven shaped lego bricks as shown in the picture.


2) The lego trees


The lego trees are made using the tree stencil that comes in lego sets
Use colourful assorted studs in shades of green to completely cover the tree.
I used a variety of studs I found in various lego sets. The ideas are endless with what you can find in your stash.

Finally make the trunk of the trees.
Here I have made two different shaped tree trunks.

One by connecting lego bricks in brown

Second using lego circular bricks and a lego stem.

3) The lego ground with flowers


Finally it’s time to assembled the project together. Use flowery studs to cover the ground.
Attached trees and giraffe in place and the project is done!
