Memories Wooden Blocks Photo Puzzle

Don’t you love to keep your most precious memories handy and easy to look at? I definitely do, maybe that explains why I have this obsession for photo frames. If I could, I would change the photos every day but you know how days go and we never really get to do that, right? I thought that with this wooden blocks photo puzzle I would be able to have more than one photo in one single frame. Six actually. I’m telling you, I LOVE it now and I keep changing the photo. I’m even planning on making a second photo puzzle LOL.

Family Memories Wooden Blocks Photo Puzzle

This cute family memories wooden blocks photo puzzle was inspired by a cute Father’s Day Photo Puzzle gift I saw over at eHow made by Tonia Larson (The original link disappeared). It’s so cute and that gave me the idea of making it with larger blocks and put it in a “kind of” frame.

I wasn’t sure yet how I was going to make the frame but I was certain that I would figure out something… Eventually… LOL. The only thing I was absolutely sure is that I was going to make that wooden blocks photo puzzle.

It took me some time to be honest. There was some details I wasn’t sure how to accomplish and I messed it up a couple times. One of those things was how to glue the photo. I thought mod podge would do, but it didn’t for this specific craft {Although I did use it for finishing purposes}. Then my hubby suggested to use adhesive in spray and I went and buy a bottle and yayyyy! It did work! Of course, in the process I screwed up 9 wooden blocks, Grrrrr


I guess you want to know how to make this cute Family Memories Wooden Blocks Photo Puzzle, right?

Let’s go!


  • 9 wooden blocks {I used 5x5x5 cm or 2x2x2 Inches. You can use the ones that fit best}
  • Adhesive spray glue.
  • 2 strong rubber bands
  • Mod podge.
  • Foam brush
  • X-acto or any thin blade cutter.
  • Piece of wood board squared{I used 20X20 cm or 8×8 Inches}
  • Piece of wood board cut in a triangle 10x17x18 cm or 4×6.5×7 Inches.
  • Wood stick 1×1 cm.
  • Wood nails
  • Transparent Contact glue {I used UHU}
  • Hammer
  • White acrylic paint
  • Silver paint.
  • Brush
  • 6 gorgeous photos squared cut and slightly larger than the 9 blocks together.

Start by cleaning your wooden blocks well. You don’t want any dust in them.


Put them together. 3 blocks per row.


Measure it so you know exactly the size of photo you need.


Choose your photos crop them and print them in the right size.


Time to glue photos to blocks.

Tighten the blocks in place with the rubber bands. This ensures that the photo will stick in the right place.


Here is where I screwed it up the first time. When you use a liquid glue, the glue slips between the blocks. That causes that when you already have photos on the sides they stick to the next blocks and that messes the photos. This is what I got:
