Puzzle Wreath Supplies:
Puzzle Pieces (buy cheap puzzles at thrift stores and yard sales)
Green Craft Paint
Faux bird (optional)
Puzzle Wreath Directions:
1. Make a layer of puzzle pieces directly inside their box or on a sheet of newspaper.
2. Apply a generous coat of green paint. (I personally like acrylic paint but if you have little ones I recommend something washable.)
3. While the paint is still wet sprinkle glitter generously on the pieces. Let dry completely.
4. Once the paint and glitter are dry begin dabbing a bit of hot glue on the back of each puzzle piece. Press the puzzle piece to the edges of another piece and press firmly down until they are adhered.
5. Continue this process, working your way in a clockwise fashion.
6. Once your wreath is created you can now attached your bird (or any other decoration desired). For an additional accent you can make a small bow our of ribbon and glue it to the top of the wreath. If you want an autism wreath paint bright colors on a few puzzle pieces accordingly and then glue them onto the wreath.
7. To finish glue a piece of ribbon to the back of the wreath or simply loop it through the wreath and tie a knot at the end for hanging!
See how simple it is? It’s a great project for kids to take up a little time and really give them some ownership for the project that they have created.
