Puzzle Piece Picture Frame!



I love puzzles! I love doing them with my kids, I love watching my kids do them and I love how you can make things with leftover pieces. I had a puzzle that was missing a number of pieces and instead of wasting it I thought I could give the puzzle a forever home on my fridge!


So here is what you will need:
  • scissors
  • cardboard
  • glue gun and glue sticks
  • extra puzzle pieces
  • magnets (optional)

Cut out squares of cardboard for your base of the frame. Begin gluing pieces of puzzle in no particular order or position.


When you have covered your cardboard square you will have something like this. Now you could put a string on it and hang it on a wall, or you can get even more creative and resourceful.


You know all those magnets you get from businesses that have bombarded your fridge? They have a much more crafty use. And for us frugal people who don't want to spend on craft magnets this is the way to go.


All you need to do is flip your frame over, cut the magnets to fit around your frame. And that's it!


Now you used your leftover puzzle pieces that could have ended up in the recycling, and magnets that have been on your fridge for far too long! And this frame looks a lot better than a business magnet!



You could make this into a huge picture frame if you have a lot of puzzles with missing pieces, or just a bunch of puzzles you don't use anymore. I bet it would look really neat with a mixture of sizes and colors.
