What is Lego Tape?
Lego tape is a fairly new item to hit the market, and has been made by several different brands. One of the most popular brands is Build Bonanza although you can find other versions online too. Whichever one you get, the premise is the same.
The beauty of Lego tape is that you can transform practically anything into a Lego play surface! This sticky tape adheres to most surfaces, allowing only your imagination to be your limit.
A few popular ways to use Lego tape include:
- Adding a custom brick building base to a round table
- Creating a portable building base that you can grab and go on road trips
- Making the underside of furniture perfect for adding Legos
And, of course, making one of a kind building jewelry like this DIY Lego bracelet!

While I have the step by step directions written below, I thought I would make a fun video to show you just how easy this project is.
Seriously, kids of all ages can make their own Lego bracelet. Just watch below and see what I mean!
So easy right? Can’t watch the video or missed some of the steps? Try the step by step instructions below.
How to Make Bracelet with Lego Tape
1. Choose Your Form
I opted to use duct tape rolls as my bracelet base because that’s what fit my kids best. You could always use something else or even cut strips of cardboard and shape them into a circle if you need a different size. For ease, however, I recommend the duct tape roll.
You will first need to remove all duct tape from the roll if you haven’t used it already. If you need suggestions for what to do to use it up, give this adorable duct tape wreath a try!
2. Cover the Roll with Lego Tape
Cover both the inside and the outside with the Lego tape. All you need to do is roll it out to see how much you’ll need to cover the bracelet. Then, cut to length.
Lastly, peel the backing, and stick into place. It is seriously that easy!
3. Cover the Inside with Lego Tape (Optional)
Finally, you can opt to cover the inside of the roll with Lego tape. This gives your kids an extra building surface if they want to use it on the go.
Troubleshooting tip: I’ve heard some people in online reviews say they had a hard time getting the Lego tape to stick. I’ve never had an issue, but just in case you do, you can always add a few dabs of superglue to ensure a permanent stay.
How to Use the Lego Bracelet
Then let your imagination run wild! Add on building blocks, Lego figures, and more!
Your kids will love changing up this bracelet whenever they feel like it! Imagine what they will create.
You can add the bracelet to their Easter basket as well. Be sure to add some additional packages of tape as they will want to make some Lego crafts of their very own.
Then they can sport their building block bracelet whenever they want!

This is literally one of the coolest things I have ever seen! How creative of you! I wonder, does it feel super heavy on the wrists? Did the kids like wearing them? I can just imagine the possibilities…fantastic tutorial! I saved this tape to my Amazon list already 🙂
It actually doesn’t feel heavy! I have one kid that loves wearing it!
Super fun idea! I have a couple of Lego-lovers at my house who’d love the tape. Visiting from Happiness Is Homemade.
