This is a fun and simple craft for kids to make. It’s also a great way to recycle puzzle pieces you may have hanging around.
1. This craft is suitable for many ages and abilities. Younger children can create simple painted shapes, like these ones, and older children can produce more complex drawings.
Recycling old puzzle pieces works well for this craft. If you don’t have any, puzzle sheets from craft stores are a great, inexpensive alternative.
Paint puzzle pieces with acrylic paint. Allow to dry. Acrylic paints are a good choice if you’re adding something on top, like the Acrylic Glass Bead medium, because it stays put and won’t mix with it. It you’re not adding anything on top, any paint will do.
2. Use a flat paint brush to add Acrylic Glass Bead medium on top of the puzzle piece. The medium will be opaque upon application, but will become clear and glossy once dry, adding an interesting glass bead texture to the surface. Allow to dry.
3. Using a glue gun, add pin backs to the back of the puzzle pieces.
