If you’re looking for a non-candy Valentine’s gift, here’s one for you: make a personalized photo puzzle! My little ones really enjoy seeing themselves on a puzzle, and they have fun piecing the photo back together. This is a quick, inexpensive craft that is fun to give and to receive!
- Puzzle – $1 for four at Dollar Tree
- Mod Podge, glue or decoupage medium
Step one: Cut your photo to fit the puzzle. Flip the photo over and trace one puzzle piece at a time.
Step two: Cut the photo into pieces following the lines you traced.
Step three: Use Mod Podge to attach the picture to the corresponding puzzle piece. I brushed a light layer onto the puzzle piece and then firmly pressed the photo on. I didn’t put Mod Podge on top of the pictures.
Place the pieces pieces back into the tray they came in, and you’re done! As a fun alternative, you could put magnets on the back of each piece and stick them to your fridge. Another idea is to use a greeting card image, put the pieces in an envelope, and make a fun puzzle birthday card or invitation. Have fun crafting and creating!
