i found an old puzzle and bought a small pack of small plain wooden letters. i painted the backside (the one without the picture) of the puzzle pieces with green paint and mod podge and painted the letters with orange paint and mod podge. then, i glued them together! magnets on the back
painted the back of the puzzle pieces green (used a few coats, letting them dry in between) then covered it with satin mod podge.
painted wooden letters orange with a few layers then covered with mod podge.
once everything was dry, i glued them together :)
after drying, i glued ciricular magnets to the back using craft glue.
