After a long break from building, I recently worked with students from Rosholt Elementary School to build a LEGO mosaic of their school mascot – a hornet. Shown below is the completed project, which is about 3 feet wide by 4 feet tall.
Shown above is the source picture I had to generate the building plans from. The small size made this a bit trickier than usual, but in the end I was pretty happy with the result.
Shown above are the building plans we used for construction. Click on the image for a larger version. These plans can also be used if anyone is interested in making a hornet like this with other materials, like cross stitch.
Just getting started. All base plates connected and some of the outline.
Some yellow has been added and the hornet is starting to take shape.
Both wings are outlined and the head is showing progress.
The hornet is complete and ready to hang in the school! I will add a picture of the mosaic hung up sometime soon. I really enjoyed this project, especially getting to work with the students from Rosholt Elementary School.
