Tips for Preserving a Family Memory: Solving Puzzles

Puzzles can be a great way for families to bond and spend quality time together. Not only are they a fun and engaging activity, but they also make for beautiful home decor when solved. However, once a puzzle is solved, it can be puzzling to know what to do with it. Here are some tips for preserving and displaying your completed puzzles as home decor. 

Carefully Remove Puzzles to Preserve 

First, carefully remove the puzzle from the board or surface it was solved. Gently lifting the pieces and placing them in a large plastic bag or container will help prevent any damage or loss of puzzle pieces. 

Glue Puzzles Together  

Next, consider gluing the puzzle together. Gluing will not only make it more durable, but it will also make it easier to display as home decor. You can use puzzle glue or clear school glue to hold the pieces together. Make sure to work in small sections and allow the glue to dry completely before moving on to the next puzzle piece. 

Frame Puzzles for New Home Décor  

Once the puzzle is dry, you can frame it or mount it to a foam board. This will give it a polished, finished look and make it easy to hang on a wall in your home to upgrade your home decor. Alternatively, you can place it on a table or a shelf as a decorative accent piece. 

Capture Family Memories  

Lastly, consider taking a photo of the puzzle once completed and framing that as well. Framing will allow you to keep the memory of the puzzle and the time you spent working on it bonding with family, without the worry of preserving the puzzle.
