What You'll Need

How We Did It

Craft Stick Puzzles

Gather your materials.

Craft Stick Puzzles

Trim the photo, greeting card or paper into strips that are slightly narrower than the width of the craft sticks. For exact edges, draw guiding lines with a pencil and ruler or get grownup help to use a paper cutter.

Craft Stick Puzzles

Use a brush to spread a thin layer of Mod Podge over the craft  sticks. Let them dry for a few seconds. Then place one paper strip on each stick. Let the paper strips dry completely.

Craft Stick Puzzles

Paint another thin layer of Mod Podge on top to seal the sticks. This step helps to protect the images and prevents peeling or yellowing.

Craft Stick Puzzles

Once the sticks are totally dry, it’s time to solve the puzzle! Use a marker to number the sticks. The numbers make it easier to keep track of the pieces and put the puzzle back together again. Mix them all up and do it again!
