Upcycle Old Puzzle Pieces Into Adorable Reindeer Ornaments
Not sure what to do with that old puzzle that's missing a few pieces? Repurpose it into cute reindeer ornaments for your Christmas tree.
- puzzle pieces
- light brown acrylic paint
- dark brown acrylic paint
- wiggle eyes
- red pom poms
- red ribbon
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
Step 1: Select and Paint Puzzle Pieces
Arrange five puzzle pieces into a reindeer head shape. You’ll need two pieces for the face (preferably two pieces that fit together), one piece for the top of the head and two pieces for the antlers.
Paint the “face” and “head” pieces light brown, and the “antler” pieces dark brown. Apply two coats if needed and let dry.
Step 2: Add Face Details
Glue two wiggle eyes and a pom pom nose to the face pieces. Tip: We used a hot glue gun for faster drying times, but young crafters can use school glue.
Step 3: Attach Ribbon
Cut a length of ribbon, about 12 inches. Glue the ends of the ribbon to the head piece to make a loop. Glue the face pieces to the head piece to hide the ends of the ribbon.
Step 4: Add Antlers
Glue the two antler pieces to either side of the head piece. Once it's dry, it's ready to hang from the tree!
