We used off cuts from our little stock pile out back. Well it’s not really so little anymore, it seems to be growing at an alarming rate so I might just end up making a whole bunch of these. All you need are eight square pieces. If you don’t have any square bits lying around, just use what you’ve got and cut them to size.
Paint or stain the wood squares in a color that matches your decor. I went for black because it such an easy color to use and it goes with everything. While you’re waiting for the paint to dry print out your images. I found a whole bunch of vintage fruit prints over at The Graphics Fairy that were perfect. All I had to do was resize them and make them square using paint.net or any other photo editor you’re familiar with. You can also use old photos or pictures from a magazine, it’s entirely up to you. In total you’ll need six square images.
I carefully tore around the edges of the pictures to add some character and then cut each picture into four and Modged them onto the squares. Just be careful not to muddle the pictures up.
And as they say in the classics “Th-th-that’s all, folks!” Don’t you love Looney tunes 😉
Those pretty leaves in the background are from our Tapeworm plant. So unusual and off beat. She’s a leaf-less plant with these long flat stems that resemble tapeworms. In Winter she makes these teeny tiny little greenish white flowers and she’s surprisingly drought tolerant. Her leaves always look so pretty in a vase and I thought she made the perfect back drop for our 3D, vintage fruit puzzle piece. What picture would you use on your puzzle? I’m thinking I’ll do a family photo album 3D puzzle with some of the other off-cuts. It could make a really nice gift.
Hope you all have a beautiful, creative week and stay safe.
