Have some old jigsaw puzzles lying around with missing pieces? Make something out of them for your home. These jigsaw hearts are simple to make and are quite pretty for a little girl’s bedroom, too.
What you will need to make these jigsaw hearts:
- Start by cutting out a thin heart shape from some thick cardboard. It needs to be wide enough to have the strength to stand up on its own, but thin enough that one of your puzzle pieces will cover it.
- Glue the puzzle pieces to the heart. Try to hide as much of the cardboard as possible. Once you’ve finished, go back to the start and layer more jigsaw pieces over the top, so that you completely hide the cardboard heart.
- To give the heart stability, glue some puzzle pieces on the back, too. Leave to dry, then glue a piece of ribbon to the top and display.
Top tip: You can pick up an old puzzle for next to nothing at a charity shop – missing pieces don’t matter, after all!
