Mixed Media Morsels & more

Tips, Ideas, and Inspiration

For the past few weeks, I’ve been having a great time altering puzzle pieces, making hanging ornaments out of them. So I decided to make one for my Mixed Media Morsels, Main Dish #8 video. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can click here to watch. These little ornaments are just over 2 inches tall and can be hung on a Christmas tree or anywhere in your home throughout the year. They make sweet handmade gifts and several people commented on the video that they wanted to make some to use as gift tags, which is another great idea! In the video, I said that I would be posting some pictures of my ornaments here on the blog, so here they are.

I found my 24-piece kids’ puzzles at my local Dollar Tree store. I have also found puzzles at thrift stores and garage sales. I hope you will find some to alter and have fun using up your leftover bits of napkins, stickers, beads, charms, embellishments, and anything else you can attach to them. And be sure to look at things before you toss them — it’s amazing how much we often throw away that could be turned into something as cute as these little ornaments!

Till next time,
Cat
