Introduction: Autism Awareness Puzzle Picture
This tutorial is a fun and easy gift that can add a pop of color to any child's room. I made this to hang in our learning room and to help gain awareness for Autism. There is a lot that people don't know about Autism and there is still a stigma attached to an Autism Diagnosis. I hope that for the sake of my child and all other children on the spectrum one day that will change and we can all understand their world a little better.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials
- Puzzle Pieces
- Hot Glue
- Painters Tape
- Acrylic Paint
Start off with a plain canvas and tape off the areas you don't want painted.
Step 2: Paint
After taping I started painting. While paint is drying move on to step 3.
Step 3: Paint Puzzle Pieces
Paint your puzzle pieces the colors you want them to be then set aside for drying.
Step 4: Adding the Puzzle Pieces
When everything is done drying use a stencil ( I printed a letter W and cut it out to make a stencil).
Step 5: The Final Step
Use your hot glue gun to glue on the puzzle pieces, then pull away the paper and you're done. I hope you have enjoyed this quick and easy gift idea. Thank you.
