Christmas is one of my favorite holidays for crafting with my kids. I like projects that are cute, easy to make, and often involve supplies we have on hand already. Most homes have long forgotten puzzles that can be used for this craft! Here’s a fun way to turn your puzzle pieces into a cute reindeer ornament or necklace!

To make your own reindeer puzzle piece ornament:
Step 1: Paint the puzzle sheets.
Step 2: Glue three puzzle pieces together; one in the center for the face and two on the sides as antlers.
Step 3: Apply Dimensional Magic to the puzzle pieces. (I used the glitter formula on some of the antlers).
Step 4: Glue on the pom pom nose and eyes.
Step 5: Tie a bell on an antler.
Step 6: Glue a ribbon to the back to make an ornament or necklace.
As an alternative, you could glue magnets to the back and use them to hold Christmas cards on your fridge. They’d also make cute pins. too. There are so many fun possibilities with this project!
