I have been working on a toy purge and came across this little wooden butterfly puzzle which the girls no longer played with or seemed to care about. It is the "craft kit" sort you find in the Michaels dollar bins (top right, below). I was going to toss it in the Goodwill bin and stopped myself, I mean really - who is going to enjoy playing with that? The purpose of it was to decorate the puzzle and then I remembered that Craft Bits had a little puzzle wreath project on recycling puzzle pieces to make a wreath.
Lily insisted that her wreath be in the shape of a heart so that took up quite a few pieces.
And we added a little ribbon (the ribbon is actually two ribbons, I stitched together to make it more substantial).
The old unloved wooden puzzle now looks like this.
Thand you to is post was featured at Life with the Lebedes, thank you!
Have a lovely week and be sure to check out the great projects at
