I've seen so many adorable and easy personalized gifts made with Scrabble tiles all over the internet, and have been so excited to try my hand at one. I purchased some Scrabble tiles in bulk on Amazon and also ordered a few tile racks to get me started. Since I'm "artistically challenged" 😛 I decided to start with a simple but pretty project. My sister's birthday is this month, and I thought I would make her a name plate for her desk, and of course with Christmas fast approaching, I also made a Scrabble themed greeting to welcome my holiday guests!
Here's a peek at how they turned out!
There are so many home decor type crafts you can make with Scrabble tiles, but this has to be one of the easiest ones ever!
Once you have your supplies, you're half way done! Here's my stash that I received from Amazon, and you can see that 300 letter tiles will be enough to make a bunch of things.
Using my glue gun, I simply applied a little glue to the backs of the tiles, one at a time, where I could see they would touch the rack, while leaving space on one side of the tile rack to add some flowers to pretty it up. I gathered a few flowers from my collection, arranged them, and again just used my glue gun to attach them.
This is the one I made for my sister's desk for her "29th" birthday! 😉
It only took around 10 minutes to make, and with using the glue gun, dried very quickly.
I also made one for myself to add to my Christmas decor. After spelling out "Merry Christmas," I used some greenery, berries and pine cones that I re-purposed from an old ornament that had seen better days, but any craft store this time of year will have tons of beautiful options to add some bling to your letters!
If you're in need of a quick, easy and inexpensive gift for someone, this fits the bill, just remember to keep the tiles away from little ones, as they can be a choking hazard.
