If you're not a fan of spending hours attempting to finish a 500 piece puzzle, use those pesky pieces to create this Holiday Puzzle Piece DIY Wreath. If your puzzle has a funky pattern on it, grab some red, green and white paint and coat the pieces in Christmas spirit. Once dry, glue those bad boys in the design you want around a wire wreath. This isn't your average wreath, which will make this decor piece super unique and different from the rest. With a ribbon that screams Merry Christmas, hang your new masterpiece up in a place where everyone can enjoy it.

From the blogger: "Got puzzles that are old, no longer played with or missing one or two key pieces? Don't trash them! Turn them into the perfect crafting material with some spray paint and crafting glue. From puzzles picked up at a thrift store, learn how I transformed them into an iconic red, green and white holiday wreath adorned with a contrasting ribbon bow. Perfect for adding a fun and festive twist to a traditional holiday front door wreath."

I love this puzzle piece wreath! You could make a bunch of different ones, with just a few different puzzles. If you have old puzzles that are missing pieces, this would be a great project to use them on. I need to find an inexpensive wreath that I could use to make this.

What a cute idea. Plus it also contains my other two requirements in order to get put on my to do list. It's easy and inexpensive. I really like the idea. I have used thick cardboard instead of floral wreath to save even more money. It was that almost inch thick kind and I sealed it with mod podge. This would be a great Autism Awareness wreath for any time of year also.

I tried to put this wreath together, but I found the whole ordeal... puzzling. HA. HA? Okay, I'll let myself out now. BUT I am going to try this later. It's too cool not to!
