This is just so very pretty. I didn't even notice it was puzzle pieces until I started reading the material list. It is such an easy project. Just paint, mod podge and glue. How simple is that? And look at what a pretty creation you can turn out. I know it will be one of a kind.

What a pretty winter wreath! I have an old puzzle but the pieces are too small for a one inch mirror to fit in the middle. After thinking a bit, I remembered a potato chip bag made with that Mylar type of finish inside, so I might try that. Cutting a true circle, especially that small, sounds challenging though.
