Previously on this blog, you learned that I like to make puzzles, most of which are 1000 pieces, but I have others that are less than 1000 pieces, which will be seen here. I also have a few other 1000 piece puzzles to show later on.
You may think that puzzles with fewer pieces are easier, and some are, but the ones that I’ve done were still difficult to do because of the colour scheme. A lot of the pieces looked the exact same, which made it hard to figure out where they went. The picture on the right is 750 pieces. It doesn’t look like it would take a long time to make, but it actually took me a while. I did this one by myself and it took me about 3 months. It’s definitely more fun to do with friends.
The three Disney puzzles are only 100 pieces each. One of my friends helped me with them and it only took us about a week to put them all together. They probably look childish, but I bought them because they’re colourful and because I love Disney (that probably sounds childish too, don’t judge me!).
I really enjoyed making the puzzle of the dolphin with the sunset in the background. I specifically bought this one because I was looking for a puzzle with a dolphin in it. I’ve always liked dolphins and I love anything to do with the ocean and beaches. It was only 300 pieces and it took my friend and I about a week and a half to put it together.
You’re probably wondering what I do with all of these puzzles when I’m finished with them. Do I take them apart? Nope. You might have also noticed that they are all on Bristol boards. When I’m finished putting them together, I glue them to the Bristol boards with puzzle glue. I then cut the excess of the board off and once I get the right sizes, I’m going to frame them and put them up on the walls in my basement. Why buy a painting for the wall when I can put my own together?
It’s time to update you on the 4000-piece puzzle. As of right now, I haven’t done anything with it. Why? That would be because my brother thought it would be funny to flip the pieces over on me. Don’t worry; he didn’t flip the ones I already put together. You’re probably thinking oh, little boys will be little boys. Wrong. He’s not little, he’s 23 years old, so you could imagine how pissed off I was. It took me about three hours to lay out all of the pieces. The result of his mess is in the picture below.
Hopefully, more of the puzzle will be completed by my next post.
