Here is a Scrabble ornament DIY you’ll love.
You can’t go wrong with this ornaments project because you can personalize it or exercise your Scrabble expertise to show off your favorite words. Or even phrases!
I’m going to share my method, and then some other fun holiday crafts you can make with Scrabble tiles!
And before you stress out about ruining a perfectly good board game, there is always a work around. You can photo copy the tiles and decoupage them instead of using the actual wood pieces. And if you look in the wood section of that craft store, you might find a bag of “Scrabble-inspired” letter tiles.
Supplies for the Scrabble ornament DIY
Scrabble game – you can also look at the thrift store because you can often find random tiles in baggies in the craft area.
Wide ribbon, about 1-1/2″. Glittered ribbon is fun or grosgrain.
Hot glue or white craft glue
Loose glitter or glitter puffy paint
Assorted beads or charms
Choose your tiles and arrange them on the ribbon, don’t glue them yet.
Add glue or paint to each tile, and glitter if desired. Let dry.
Cut the ribbon a bit longer to leave room for it to show.
Glue the tiles in place and then create a small fold at the top and bottom of the ribbon so you can feed the wire or ribbon through for hanging.
Add a jump ring at the bottom and add the beads or charms!
Rather than one word, you can cut a piece of fabric or card stock and make phrase ornaments, like this:
Here are some awesome ideas I found on YouTube!
These are a little different than mine, I love how they added the small bow at the top!
This is clever the way they connected the words using twine. They even look like little trees, so festive!
This is for the ultimate Scrabble die-hardi n the family. She literally sawed the tray to fit thw size of the word for the ornament. That is dedication!
