Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Give a valentine a piece of your heart with this clever pin made from old jigsaw puzzle pieces.

Materials

  • Red spray paint
  • Newspaper
  • Glue

Instructions

  1. Place 20 to 25 old jigsaw puzzle pieces, excluding the straight-edged border pieces, on newspaper and spray-paint them red (brush-applied paint will also work).
