Instead of throwing out those puzzles with missing pieces, let your kids turn what's left into a cast of holiday characters.

What you'll need

  • Jigsaw puzzle pieces
  • Acrylic paint
  • Fine-point permanent markers
  • Glue
  • Dimensional fabric paint
  • Pom-poms
  • Mini googly eyes
  • Monofilament
  • Pinbacks

How to make it

  1. Paint the puzzle pieces with acrylic paint. Once they're dry, draw or glue on distinguishing features. We used dimensional fabric paint, pom-poms, mini googly eyes, and a fine-point permanent marker.

  2. Turn the creatures into tree ornaments by gluing loops of monofilament to the backs, or attach pinbacks so you can give a backpack or sweater a little holiday flair.
