I went through hell and high water trying to learn how to make a word search puzzle for a Cricut Mothers Day Idea I had for a gift.
I searched all over the internet for DIY word search maker and word search puzzles you create and I couldn’t find anything helpful. So all that was left was creating 1 on my own.
I tried to make my word search puzzle in Adobe Photoshop and also directly in Cricut Design Space. Neither worked. I couldn’t figure out how to align the letters.

I ended up opening google sheets to make it. Why? Because it made sense, there are already sales in the program so all you have to do is enter your words and your random letters with no commas or spaces. I didn’t but You can also add the word list right in Google Sheets.
Using this method to make a DIY Word Search will also work I’m sure with a crossword puzzle and its answer key. Using Google Sheets as a puzzle maker was one of the best ideas I have had in a while!
