I have a small obsession with puzzle pieces! I love reusing them! Today I am sharing some simple Puzzle Piece Ornaments in the shapes of Candy Canes and Wreaths! This is a perfect project to get your small people involved in!

We probably all have a puzzle laying around with a piece or two missing, right? Even if you don’t have the right size of puzzle pieces…my dollar store carries them and this $1 puzzle has been used in several of my projects!

Start off by painting your puzzle pieces!  I painted both sides so that if the ornament can be seen from the back it still looks pretty!  I painted 6 pieces of each color, red and white. Once dry, use your glue to adhere them together in the shape of a candy cane. When the glue dries, add a loop with your ric rac or ribbon.  Just find a hole created by the puzzle pieces and loop it through there!

Now let’s move onto the Wreath Ornament:

For the wreath I tried a different method.  I glued the pieces together FIRST and then painted.

After the green paint dried, I used a tube of puff paint to make the tiny berries!

Once everything was dry I used some ribbon along with a tiny jingle bell left over from my Cork Rudolph Ornament from last year to make the hanger.
