Puzzle Pieces Crafts: Snowflakes

Puzzle Craft Ideas - Snowflake OrnamentSo.. I was challenged to come up with some Puzzle Pieces Craft ideas.. we all have puzzles with the odd pieces missing. Rather than throw away that puzzle, think of all the puzzle crafts you could make! A tricky one at first, but the more you get into it, the more ideas come to you!

I did get stuck.. so I did a little google search for inspiration and found Lisa’s Craft Blog’s little Snowflakes. I thought they were perfect. So had a go at our own.

My instructions are slightly different, than what I actually did, as I “learnt” as  I went along.

Materials: 6 small puzzle pieces (the ones with two point bits at either end, no edges etc), card, PVA glue, paint or spray paint and ribbon for hanging 

1) Begin my dampening your puzzle pieces and peeling off the layer of the puzzle that has a picture on it. This has two benefits – it makes the puzzle easier to paint afterwards and also makes the puzzle a little thinner, making the final snowflake less bulky. I didn’t do this, but WILL do it the next time round!

2) Cut a little disc from your card and glue on 3 pieces of your puzzle equally spaced out.

3) Glue the remaining three and let dry.

4) Paint white – I may do these again and use some silver spray paint for a nice even shiny finish. Once fully dry. Paint the reverse side too.

5) Glue on some ribbon for hanging. And done. So pretty!
