DIY Family Photo Puzzles with Craft Sticks – {Plus Win an HP Photosmart 7520 Printer}

DIY Family Photo Puzzle

March Break is just around the corner and keeping our little ones entertained during the break requires some creativity, especially on rainy days.

A few days ago I decided to make some fun photo puzzles with my son for him to use during his upcoming March break from school. He loves puzzles and a personalized one with our own photos will keep him busy and happy.

I felt that that using photos of our family would be extra appealing to him.  I know that  his Grandparents who live quite far away really appreciate that he is getting to see them in some creative and fun form of picture puzzle.

DYI Family photo Puzzles

I decided to use craft sticks for the puzzles because they are easy to work with, cheap and they make really easy and safe puzzle pieces to play with.  We used the smaller craft sticks because that’s all we had at home but you can use jumbo size sticks as well.

What we used:

  • Colour Wood Craft Sticks, 6″ long/ (Jumbo size if you prefer)
  • Adhesive Glue
  • Cutting Mat (or an old thick magazine)
  • Sharp knife
  • Your favourite photos on your computer
  • Photo Paper
  • Colour Printer

The Easy Steps:

  • We started our project by selecting our favourite family photos on my laptop.

  • Next we picked one of the printed photos, cropped it, turned it over and began placing the craft sticks on it with the glue.
  • We used same colour sticks for each separate photo and left a bit of a gap in between sticks to easily fit the knife when cutting.

  • We run the blade along the craft sticks to separate them and trimmed the ends.

  • We repeated the steps above with the remainder of the photos and stored all the sticks in a reusable bag, ready to be played with at anytime.

    Popsicle stick crafts definitely bring back memories of kindergarten!

    If I won this printer, I would finally be able to make a faux headboard out of my favourite shots! That, and maybe a set of coasters for the living room.

    Love the popsicle stick idea! In addition to using the printer to create customized and personalized Christmas cards and calendars, (taking inspiration from your popsicle stick puzzle idea) I would blow up an image and print sections of said image onto 5×7 or 4×6 photo paper. I’d frame each section in an edge-less frame and put up on the wall. I’d leave a bit of space between each section of the blown-up photo, resulting in a collage/puzzle effect.

    You can print out a picture to fit a canvas size of your choosing, take black acrylic paint and paint the canvas and sides, let dry, now take mod podge and smear paste (with foam paint brush, which you can buy at dollar store) on the front, adhere picture and then put more mod podge on top of the picture. Let dry. When dry you will have a gorgeous mountable picture.

      Crapola! Forgot to add my own craft… hmm…. I’ve seen others print out one very large image on to 24 single pages, then assemble them onto their wall for a very large version of the picture.

    I have a couple of stories I would like to put together for my nephew. This printer would make the whole process a lot easier.

    I would scan in a plat layout of some land we are looking at, enlarge it on grid paper, and use that to make a layout of the cabins, etc, we want to put on it.

    The most creative I’ve been is making window clings and making custom stickers. I made a J&B Trucking sticker that I put on a dollar store semi truck for a friend’s son who loved J&B trucks b/c his father (who had recently passed away) drove a truck from there.

    You could use the printer to print off pictures on iron on paper and make a photo quilt. They turn out so beautiful!

    I am not sure what I would do as I am not creative, but one I do like to do with a really good printer is I like to print the oil paints that I paint and give a few copies out to friend that enjoy them.

    Making T-shirt transfers on home printers is an easy and creative way to make wearable art using family-special photos and whichever photo editing software you choose.
