Puzzle piece snowflake.

What do you do with a thousand puzzle pieces once you've completed the puzzle? Make puzzle piece snowflakes to decorate your home for winter! These simple winter crafts are great for all ages and fun for the family to work on together.

  • Puzzle pieces
  • Tacky glue (for younger kids) or hot glue (for adults and teens)
  • White paint
  • Glitter and spray adhesive or decoupage glue (optional)
  • White or blue ribbon

1. Take 4-6 puzzle pieces and arrange them in a circle, overlapping slightly. Once you have a design you like, glue the pieces in place. If you are using tacky glue, let dry completely.

2. Paint the snowflake white and let dry. Depending on the type of paint and color of the puzzle, you may need more than one coat of paint.

3. Cut a 6-inch length of ribbon and form into a loop. Turn over the snowflake and glue the loop to the top of the snowflake. This is how you can hang the snowflakes!

*Optional: Coat the snowflake in spray adhesive or decoupage glue and add silver or white glitter for a little extra sparkle in your snowflake!
