This fun easy LEGO hack is one that my three-year-old daughter Anna invented! My kids love for me to punch out paper butterflies for them using this Martha Stewart butterfly craft punch. Anna plays with them in all sorts of fun ways while the older kids are in school, and one day she started using them as fairy wings for the Anna and Elsa minifigures that came with the LEGO Frozen set we gave her for her birthday (the set is designed for 6-12-year-olds which meant I helped the other kids build it, but Anna plays with it all the time). I helped her make the wings a little more stable, and we had a fun new way to play with LEGO minifigures!
LEGO Minifigure Fairy LEGO Hack
This is what you need for this simple LEGO Minifigure Fairy hack:
- LEGO Minifigures. We used the Anna and Elsa minifigures that came with this LEGO Frozen set, which I also recommend as a fun set for any Frozen fan.
- Card stock. You could use construction paper, but something like this will hold up better.
- Martha Stewart butterfly craft punch. You may recognize this paper punch from my teacher thank you cards post last June.
Take off the minifigure’s hair and place a small piece of Blu-Tack on the center of the butterfly shape. The Blu-Tack will keep the wings in place throughout the LEGO minifigure’s many adventures.
Re-attach the hair, and your doll is ready to go! If your doll has short hair, you may want to remove the butterfly head before doing this to make the wings look more like wings and less like a butterfly. If you want super durable wings, you could always laminate the wings beforehand. I have been using this Scotch brand laminator since 2010, and it is great. AmazonBasics laminating pouches are more affordable than other brands and work well.
So far, I have not laminated wings. It’s easy to punch out new ones when the old ones wear out.
Anna and Elsa were pretty fun before this transformation, but now they are ready for a whole new level of adventures!

You’ve just whipped my two sprogs into a state of frenzy lol. :) Guess this Lego set is getting added to the Christmas list
It’s a fun one!
That is brilliant! Oddly enough, Princess has not asked for the Frozen Legos set, which surprised me.
What a brilliant fusion!
What a great idea to make wings and it turns the toy into a craft with even more ways to play! Brilliant!
This looks cute! Interestingly, A has no interest in Disney Lego sets. She is still on the mission to assemble as many Lego Friends sets as possible :)
Emma and Lily have surprised me by not being interested in Disney or even (much, at least) the LEGO Friends sets. Anna is breaking the mold :)
What a brilliant idea! You really opened the door to so many creative ways a child could personalize their Lego figures.
