I am just loving on this cute Snowflake Ornament made with puzzle pieces! A few days back I shared my Rudolph Reindeer Ornament and towards the beginning of the series I shared my Snowman Ornament too! I love ornaments…can you tell?!?
- Puzzle (I got mine at Dollar Tree) Make sure it is at least a 500 piece so you get the small pieces
- White Paint/paintbrush
- Sparkle Mod Podge
- Mod Podge Dimensional Magic (not pictured)
- Tacky Glue
- Small wooden discs
I started out by finding the puzzle pieces that were long and skinny. Not ones that have a straight edge or a corer piece! I used tacky glue and I glued them onto the circle disc in a star pattern to create the snowflake shape.
Next I painted the whole thing white. Front and back about 2-3 coats each side and edges.
When the paint dried, I applied two coats of sparkle mod podge. I am LOVING the sparkle Mod Podge! I used it for my Tiered Platter and I have since been eyeing up everything in sight that I can cover with the stuff! The perfect amount of sparkle without the mess everywhere = LOVE in my mind!
Then I set my snowflake on a flat surface and covered the top with dimensional magic and let dry for 3 hours. I love the way it turned out. The dimensional magic gave it a hard plastic sheen and they are just little puzzle pieces under there!
Glue a ribbon on the back to hang with and you are done! This is a great activity to do with the kids and these can be added to your gift wrapping as cute embellishments! Michael made about 20, he loved them so much!
