puzzle wreath

December 21, 2009

I am embarrassed to admit that I boxed this up and mailed to our 91 year-old GG (who loves puzzles- get it?!) before taking an “after” picture!  Just imagine a beautiful red bow on the bottom-right, and another red loop at the top.  Gorgeous, right?!

*Directions*

Grab a puzzle, any puzzle, and separate out all of the middle pieces (no border pieces for this project!).

To make it easier for my kids, I cut a square piece of paper to help make the wreath somewhat circular.  You could always cut a circle out of cardboard to give it added strength, we chose to do it more free-style.

Put one layer, 2 pieces wide, in a circle.

Start glueing pieces on top (I used craft glue), connecting all of the pieces together.

Continue glueing pieces until you’re happy with the finished product.

Let dry, add a bow (or glitter, beads, whatever you’re in the mood for!), and sit back and enjoy!
