My girls and I love creating fun crafts during the holidays. This Puzzle Heart Canvas Craft not only is fun, but it’s a wonderful keepsake that will last for years.
Puzzle Heart Canvas Craft
Creating memories with our children is such an important part of being a parent. This is why I love creating crafts with my girls. Plus, it also makes some great decorating art for the home!
8×8″ stretched canvas
100 piece puzzle
(2) small foam paint brushes
Bright pink and red craft paint
Hot glue gun/glue sticks
8×8″ Piece of scrap paper
Clean tooth brush
Lay an old newspaper out and paint the back side of each puzzle piece either pink or red (about 25 of each color) and let dry.
Fold a piece of 8×8″ paper width wise and cut heart out on the folded line.
Trace your heart lightly onto the center of your canvas.
Start carefully glueing your puzzle pieces onto the heart, do not go outside your pencil line (it helps if you place the flat edges against the sides of the heart).
Once your heart is full, glue a second and third layer of puzzle pieces covering up the empty spaces.
Clean off any hot glue strings with a clean paint brush or clean toothbrush and display your work of art.
