Custom Vinyl Decal Owl Family Monogram

This was a gift to celebrate the birth of baby E to a wonderful couple.

The wife loves owls and baby E had hair that sort of twirled upwards. The hair made baby E’s face resemble an owl.

A letter E is placed in the middle to represent baby E. Wings of the owl have the initials of the couple integrated into the design symbolizing protection and shelter for baby E.

LEGO Minifigure Display Large IKEA Ribba Frame

After making the smaller IKEA Ribba Frame for display of LEGO minifigures, this is the second version.

This time the frame used is the larger sized Ribba frame. The middle portion is a gray LEGO base plate allowing total flexibility to place your minifigure collection.

Hand Crafted LEGO Minifigure Display IKEA Ribba Frame

Having been caught up in the craze of collecting LEGO minifigures, I started by buying a grey 48 x 48 stud base plate to display the various minifigures.

As the collection grew, the base plate was running out of space with a mix of Collectible Minifigures, Star Wars and other minifigures from Toy Story and Shell. It was also a hassel to constantly dust and clean it.

Looking around online, I saw various methods that people have come up with to display their proud collection. There were some cases from hobby shops but shipping would have been expensive plus I would still need quite a few bricks and other pieces to make the shelves and stand for the minifigures.

Another popular option was using the IKEA Ribba deep frames. After all, there’s an IKEA store in almost every big city so that would be one of the easiest and affordable choices. The Ribba deep frames are available in two sizes, 23 cm x 23 cm (9 inch x 9 inch) or 52 cm x 52 cm (20 1/2 inch x 20 1/2 inch) and come in black or white.

The IKEA store I visited did not have the larger Ribba frames in stock and so I made do with the smaller size in black.  On the way back, my mind was buzzing with ideas as I still had to solve the puzzle of making the shelves to hold the minifigures inside. Also, what should l display inside it? Could it fit 16 minifigures to house a complete Collectible Minifigures Series? Or maybe my collection of Star Wars Minifigures?

Here’s a photo of the completed frame. More details after the photo.
