I’ve been making DIY puzzle cubes since 2011! (Here’s the first one I ever made.) They’re cute, easy to make and fun to play with.

The only other things you will need to make the 3D puzzle cube are:

  • Q-tips (to apply the wood glue)
  • Newspaper or paper bag (to protect your crafting surface)

And if you don’t buy a kit, but still want to make a 3D puzzle cube, here are links to buy everything you need on Amazon.

Total: $24.29 Bottom line: If you just want to make a couple cubes, buy kits! If you looking to make lots of DIY puzzles it makes more sense to buy everything individually. Kits do make awesome gifts!

Making the 3D puzzle cube is super simple! First, take 23 cubes and arrange them into these 5 shapes. Next, dip a q-tip into the wood glue and carefully glue these shapes together making sure that they are square and as lined up as possible. The glue does not dry super quick so you do have a little wiggle room with each piece. Use a flat surface to make sure you are getting your blocks as straight as possible. Set the criss cross shaped piece to the side, that one is complete! It’s also fair to note, that you do not have to make your puzzle cube in the same shapes as mine! There a bazillion of ways to make this work.

Now, for the other 4 pieces you will need to glue one of the 4 remaining cubes to each piece. Follow the arrows!

Next, give the glue a few hours to dry, and then paint each piece a different color. You will end up with 4 colored pieces and one wooden piece!
