It's Craftastic! Valentine Puzzle Charm

Posted: Updated:

♥ Puzzle pieces

♥ Fine grit sandpaper

♥ Acrylic paint in two contrasting colors

♥ Paint brushes

♥ A drill or needle

♥ Varnish or sealant

♥ Jump rings

♥ Jewelry pliers

1. The first step in this project is to find two puzzle pieces that fit together. Once you have
selected your pieces, sand them with a fine grit sandpaper to prime the surface for painting.

2. Use a drill, needle, or other pointed object to puncture a hole in the top of each puzzle piece.

3. Brush a coat of acrylic paint onto both sides of the puzzle pieces, as well as the edges. If you
would like to achieve a yin and yang effect, paint each puzzle piece a different color.

4. If the image of the puzzle shows through the paint, wait until the first coat of paint is dry and apply additional coats until you achieve a solid color.

5. Use a fine tip brush to paint a heart in a contrasting color. Allow to dry.

6. Brush on a layer of varnish or sealant to protect the paint on your puzzle charm.

7. Once the varnish has dried, attach a jump ring to the puzzle charms using jewelry pliers. You
are now ready to wear one and give the other away to a loved one!
