In this video we show how to build a LEGO Youtube Button Logo. We show how to make it with FREE PDF Instructions on our website. It is entirely made out of LEGO, and kept simple and straight forward.

Transcript from the show:
G’day Everyone, Matt Elder of Family Bricks and in this video we are going to show you how to make this Youtube Logo play button out of LEGO. Around this video should be a link to a FREE Instructions PDF file that is located on our website mattelder.com
This is a slight variation on the Youtube Logo we created for our LEGO Scenario Canvas / Platform on the LEGO ideas website. If you’d like to support and be super awesome, click the link around this video to the LEGO Ideas website and hit the blue “SUPPORT” button near the top right of the page. You can use your LEGO.com login or create one on the site if you don’t already have one.
The one for the LEGO Scenario motorized billboard was 1 column of studs wider. However we wanted to create a LEGO MOC out of parts more readily available to everyone. Thus it is based off an 8×8 plate. For the corners we have used quarter circle round pieces but you could just as easily use 1×1 square tiles.
Same with the white Modified 1 x 1 Half Circle Extended teeth pieces, you could just as easily use 1×1 square tiles. We just find the teeth just help take the blockiness off the logo and give a more overall impression of a triangle.
This is a Family Bricks video. Be sure to hit that like button, share or be super awesome and subscribe! Click the bell and select “All”, to be notified of new videos as they are uploaded.
Lets get started. Here we will show you the pieces required for each step and how they fit together. Note we use a 1×2 jumper, this will help give the play triangle a more defined point. So the first step is mainly built around this jumper.
As the corners will have quarter pizza tiles, you’ll see whatever is underneath it. That is why we have used 1×8 white plates. If you didn’t care about this, you could use whatever colour you want.
The next layer is about the white triangle so tile that out. We wanted to have a counter sunk feel to the logo so filled the rest in again with red plates, with white ones on the edges. If you didn’t care for the counter sunk nature, you could just use the tiles from the next step here and be done.
Now the final layer and just a matter of tiling away. Place in the 4 corner quarter circles and then the rest is 1×1 square tiles. Occasionally you’ll see me using a brick separator. This is just to line up the edges. I’m a little OCD so like to have straight lines.
I see some of the promotional videos by LEGO for LEGO DOTS and they don’t neatly line up the edges – just a little attention to detail that slips past.
And there you have it all completed. A Youtube Play button made out of LEGO. Again, the FREE PDF instructions are on our website mattelder.com
If you did get some value out of this, it would be awesome if you could head on over to LEGO Ideas and give a vote for our LEGO Scenario Canvas / Platform.
You might be looking at these clips and wondering how this Youtube logo was used and why is it moving around like that? What is that all about? Is there a video that goes into detail and breaks it all down? Lucky I’ve created a video that goes into detail on this and you can click here to watch that video. Alternatively, here are some other videos you might like. That’s all from us at Family Bricks until next time when we talk about all things LEGO.
