LEGO Capes for Minifigures (with pattern)

Let’s learn how to make Duck (or Duct Tape) LEGO capes!  Your child’s LEGO minifigures can never have too many accessories.  Even a knight, policeman, or princess can use a cape!  It turns a regular LEGO mini-figure into a super hero!

Look at our fun LEGO guys with fabulous capes.  They add a new dimension of fun to LEGO playtime!
You can even make the capes reversible!  See the guy on the right?  He has fire on the front and red on the back.  We made it with two different types of of duct tape.

Materials for LEGO capes:

Directions for LEGO Capes: 

  1.  Fold a piece of duck tape in half, trace around pattern (see below for printable), cut, and punch holes.  Voila!  If you want to make a reversible cape, put two different types of duck tape together first and then cut.
  2. Print the pattern (below) and re-size it to fit your duck tape.  Our entire cape was about 1 3/4 inches wide and tall.  We used an actual LEGO cape to make the pattern.

Tip:  The holes may be a little tight. Just wiggle them over the body pegs and stick the head back on.  The holes will stretch out over time.
