I've been whipping these up for all kinds of occasions lately. It all started with my brothers wedding back in May when I wanted to create a beautiful handmade gift but was on an uncomfortably tight budget. If you're lucky enough to come across an old game of scrabble at a local thrift store or collecting dust in a friends basement this entire project will cost only a few dollars. I recently put another one together for my master bedroom in time for our recent anniversary. Hubby loved it.
After you've tracked down an old game of scrabble round up the letters you'll need and play around with combinations. Find a frame big enough to display your words of choice, we found ours for $1 at our local dollar store. We kept it clean by inserting a plain sheet of white paper inside the frame but you can add in some patterned paper to spice things up a bit. Once you have your tiles laid out the way you would like use hot glue to attach them directly to the glass. The hot glue comes off super easy if you make a mistake and need to do any adjustments. We flipped over one of the tiles and added on a sparrow cabochon just for fun.
We have another special project in mind for our old scrabble board...but we'll need to collect a few more first.
