- Four ice cream sticks
- One piece of cardboard (should be a little larger than photo)
- Fifteen puzzle pieces
- Light blue and white tempera paint
- Small sponge
- Craft glue
- Hot glue
- Hot glue gun
- Small fish stickers (or other small stickers)
- Clear and/or iridescent craft gems in assorted sizes
Four Easy Steps
Step One: Prep
Adhere your photograph to the cardboard using craft glue. Next, attach the four ice cream sticks around your photograph by using craft glue. Finally, with scissors, trim the cardboard so that it is slightly larger than your photo. Put aside to dry.
Step Two: Paint
Place newspaper on a table. Set puzzle pieces, face up. Two to three coats of paint might be required depending on the darkness of your puzzle pieces. Allow the puzzle pieces to completely dry.
Once dry, use the sponge to paint light blue “here and there” on the puzzle pieces.
Step Three: Glue
With hot glue, stick the fifteen puzzle pieces to the four ice cream sticks. Overlap puzzle pieces to ensure that there will be no gaps in between puzzle pieces.
Step Four: Decorate
Once the puzzle pieces are hot glued in place, adhere the gems to the frame with hot glue. Be sure to alternate small, medium, and large craft gems to look like floating bubbles. If desired, stick on two small fish stickers for decoration.
Finally, hang the bubble picture frame and enjoy!
