There are many ways to build LEGO trees using standard LEGO bricks and plates, and you can also take advantage of special LEGO leaf and flower elements. Today I wanted to show you a flowering tree design that is simple and doesn’t require a lot of pieces, but could really brighten up your LEGO cities, towns and parks. 🙂
The tutorial for making this little LEGO tree with beautiful blossoms is by flickr member Ruben Ras, who shows you how to build the model step-by-step. All the tree needs is 22 pieces of standard LEGO flower stems to create the canopy. You will also need 14 LEGO flower assemblies still on the sprue, and a few extra loose flowers to fill in the tree canopy. The tree trunk is a simple design, with a little bit of sideways building at the top where the canopy gets attached.
I’m sharing a few pictures here with some of the steps to give you an idea, and you can find the step-by-step tutorial at Ruben Ras’ flickr gallery at the following link: LEGO Blossom Tree Tutorial
Cute little tree isn’t it? Perfect for a LEGO city layout, park, or country cottage setting. And of course you don’t have to use pink flowers, you can also use other colors like white, yellow, red, and more. As long as the flowers are still attached to the sprue, they are great for this design. If you don’t have enough LEGO flowers, flower stems or other pieces, you can get them at the Online LEGO Pick-A-Brick Shop.
So what do you think? How do you like this LEGO flowering tree? Are you planning to build one yourself? Are there any other LEGO tree designs that you really like? Feel free to share in the comment section below! 😉
