Build a Lego Minifigure display stand using legos that you already own! This simple structure is perfect for keeping your kid’s Minifigures off your floor and on display.
DIY Lego Minifigure display stand
If you have a kid over the age of 2 you probably own a few Lego. By the age of 6, “a few” becomes the understatement of the year. The one thing we all know about Lego is, there is no containing them. No matter how many storage bins and containers you get, they are always on the floor.
Of all the Lego my son has, the only thing he “tries” to keep out are the Minifigures. This, however, seems impossible, as there are heads and arms and pants all over his room. We needed a Lego Minifigure display stand.
Since my son loves building with Lego so much that we even use them for his chore chart, I chose to build the Minifigure stand out of lego too. He helped me with the initial base design and picking the colors, but I did the major work (aka, the gluing). Now he can display, rearrange, and even play with his Minifigure stand.
He loved this stand so much, that he asked me to build another stand for his Minecraft collection.

Tips for making this Lego display stand
- Try to get a good Minifigure inventory before you get started. That way you build a stand big enough for your child’s current collection, plus a few more.
- If they have too many characters, maybe two smaller stands will work better.
- When adding the thin Lego strips, use a square block to keep them straight. Just don’t glue them down by mistake!
- Include your child as much as possible. From choosing the colors to building the base. They will be filled with pride when they display their Minifigures.
How to make a DIY Lego Minifigure stand
Below is our step by step tutorial for creating this Lego Minifigure display stand. Feel free to print it for easy reference.
- Using the Mega Blocks, build a stair style base that is at least 3 steps tall.
- Once you are happy with the size of your stand, glue the pieces together using super glue. (aka...Kragle)
- Spray paint your stand any color that you, or your child chooses. My son chose black.
- Once the paint is dry, it's time to start adding the plate pieces. I used small square Legos to keep the plates in straight. But these are temporary.
- Super glue the plates onto the stand.
- After allowing the glue to dry a bit , remove the square blocks. Give your Lego Minifigures stand plenty of time to completely dry.
- Finally, add Minifigures!
