Beautiful Snowflake From Puzzle Pieces
Do you have a puzzle laying around that isn’t being used or perhaps it’s missing pieces? I have a great project that turns puzzle pieces into a magnetic snowflake! It’s super easy, kids can get in on the fun as well. Great for gift ideas, craft night, classroom parties, etc.
Spread your puzzle pieces out, and you’ll need about 7 pieces per snow flake. You can adjust this project however you like.
If you like this you might some of my other home hacks.
Hot glue or glue your pieces together. Here is how I did it.
I set one piece in the center and added 3 pieces angling out on top of that 1st piece in a triangle type shape – one on the top, and 2 in either bottom corner. I then added a top layer of 3 more placing them in the spaces of the first layer.
I bought a package of magnets from the Dollar Tree, and cut the extra into square/rectangle shapes.

Glue the magnets onto the back of the puzzle pieces.
I used Dixie Belle Fluff paint to paint the whole snowflake shape white. You could paint the puzzle pieces first if you’d rather.
While the paint was still wet, I sprinkled white glitter onto the snowflakes.
Let dry completely, and they’re ready to hang or give as a gift.

Nice…my mom made hair clasp out of them also.
Thanks and that sounds really cool, I’d love to see a picture of that!
That’s so fun!
Thank you Tamar 🙂
So very cute! I could see making wreaths this way too. Thanks for sharing with us at the Virtual Refrigerator. Pinned.
Thanks and yes I have seen wreaths made this way too and they are so cute. Thank you for the Pin 🙂
This is such a clever idea. I have never thought that puzzle pieces could make snowflakes. It seems like puzzle pieces go missing more than we’d like. This is a great idea to reuse the puzzle pieces.
Thank you Natalie 🙂
What a great idea. It is so nice to see a Christmas decoration that is a bit different. Jigsaws are usual a part of Christmas in my house.
Thank you Ginny, love that you have a tradition of puzzles during Christmas at your house. 🙂
This is such a clever idea! I especially like the glitter that you added to the snowflakes. So cute! Thanks so much for sharing at our Party in Your PJs.
Thank you Nina, I’m always thinking what can I make this into before I have to just let it go. Glitter is a must right – lol. Thanks for stopping by.
That’s a sweet little idea. I’ve seen puzzle pieces made into wreaths but the snowflakes are a lovely.
So cute! I’ll have to remember to pick up a puzzle at one of next summer’s garage sales. 🙂
Thanks Linda, I thought the same thing! Now there is a purpose for all those thrift store and garage sale puzzles.
Thanks Julie, I’ll have to give the wreaths a try too – thanks for sharing 🙂
This is the cutest idea!!
Thank you so much Kristin, a fun winter project 🙂
