Have you ever found a jigsaw puzzle you absolutely loved. You work for hours putting the puzzle together only to take it apart and put it back into the box. Why not glue the puzzle together and frame it to hang on the wall?
Find a jigsaw puzzle you would enjoy putting together and hanging on your wall as a framed picture. There are many puzzles to choose from at craft stores and department stores. Put your puzzle together on a piece of poster board. Once the puzzle is completed, begin to glue to together. Pour the glue on the middle of the puzzle and spread to cover the entire puzzle. Don't be stingy-use plenty of glue. Let the puzzle dry for at least one hour. Once the puzzle is dry, flip it over and repeat the gluing process for the other side. This will ensure your puzzle will be strong.
Measure the puzzle and purchase a frame to fit the puzzle. There are many inexpensive frames. I have found some great frames at the dollar stores in my area or check out garage sales. Before you put the puzzle into the frame, you can add embellishments. For instance, my aunt made a puzzle of toys and other items you would find in your attic. She put some crocheted trim into the frame before she added the puzzle. It gave a Victorian touch to the picture.
Once the puzzle is in the frame, you are ready to hang it on the wall and enjoy. These puzzles also make great, inexpensive gifts. You can also make children's puzzles and use them to decorate your child's bedroom.
