Christmas Wreath Pin

Monday!!! My favorite day. 

 I love to start a new blogging week and this week is the kick off  for:

My First Blogging Christmas

What to do with a puzzle with missing pieces?

Make a Christmas Wreath Pin

Before

Last year I was shopping with my sister at Christmas time and she was wearing a darling wreath pin.  A friend had made it for her out of small puzzle pieces.  I was amazed and I had to have one. Well, while at a yard sale this year I found two bags of small puzzle pieces for a dine.  Yes.  You guessed it.  There was the material for my wreath pin.


I took the puzzle pieces and made a round circle and glued them together with Aleene's Tacky Glue.  My granddaughter is making some wreath pins as Christmas gifts for her teachers and friends. So we are doing this project together.  I just love the girls to be interested in creative activities.  Especially with me.


I found 3/4 inch bar pins at Jo Anns and glued one on the back of the wreath .


While making Christmas cards I bought this marvelous glitter.  "Stickles" for paper crafting.  It's glue and glitter combined.  Doesn't fall off.  I put 'Star Dust' on my pin.
After

Added embellishments and Ta Da!!!
