I am just loving on this cute Puzzle Piece Snowflake Ornament!  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?!?  I also love all the fun things you can make using up-cycled puzzle pieces!

How to make a snowflake ornament from puzzle pieces!
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!
