So my dog decided that 6 puzzle pieces looked tasty when my back was turned. Now I am left with 994 puzzles pieces. Since the rest of the puzzle as a whole is useless, I am trying to think of this positively and turn this into an opportunity for a new DIY. Any ideas?

make a party and treat those pieces as a confetti ; )) (just kidding)

Maybe throw out some puzzle pieces (near from those which was eaten by your dog) and stick some colour paper sheets ? Or more creative way: use puzzle pieces as a mosaic and stick them to a flowerpot? Wink

Have you thought about an altered puzzle? Or assembling the rest of the puzzle and making new pieces from cardboard (that's why you need to assemble the rest of the puzzle - to know what shape to cut the new pieces) and paint/draw/whatever the new pieces? They won't match but so what? They can be like the little "censored!" marks they put on tv shows or pictures sometimes. Smiley

My family made Christmas ornaments out of old puzzle pieces before. We spray painted them green, glued them in wreath shapes and added tiny red bows. I think we also out a picture in the middle.  Smiley

I have a Christmas reindeer pin made from puzzle pieces.  Once the head and antler pieces were glued together, they were painted brown and a red nose and wiggly eyes were added.

Earrings are a great idea.  You could even decoupage another image over the puzzle front. Also, try a quick google search, the answer ideas were actually pretty awesome! http://familycrafts.about.com/od/puzzlegamepiececrafts/tp/PuzzlePieceCrafts.htm

Why recycle when you can upcycle?  Totally open to personal swaps, even if we make different stuff!

I love the 'altered art' idea! I probably would put the puzzle together, then glue it down on a board or something. Then create something to fill in the gap, depending on what the puzzle image was, and where the pieces were missing from. I put together a monster 1500 piece puzzle couple years ago. Found out that a huge 20-piece chunk of a corner was missing from the box. It was a picture of a field of flowers, so I went and bought some faux flowers and glued them into the corner to cover up the missing chunk. It looked adorable! I gave it as a gift to a friend who adored it. It paid off - I'd contacted the manufacturer about the missing parts, and I got a coupon in the mail for a brand new puzzle for free! Yeah!
