Scrabble Tile Ornaments

Even though I'm not decorating for Christmas until Thanksgiving arrives, the planning and crafting has begun!  Welcome back, I'm glad you're here.  
I've been seeing Scrabble tile ornaments all over Pinterest and have always said I was going to make them someday.  Someday arrived when a friend gave me a bag of tiles and told me to go do something with them.  Gotta love friends like that!
So, I grabbed a paint stirrer and cut it down to size.
The hole for hanging was drilled and some scrapbook paper cut to size.
The edges of the paint stirrer were painted with craft paint.
No worries about the middle since it would be covered by Mod Podge and scrapbook paper.
Then it was time to sort through  the Scrabble tiles.
The letters I wanted were found and glued on with E6000.  When they dried, a ribbon was run through the drilled hole for hanging.
It was so easy, I made some more!
What homemade ornaments are you making this year?

  3. These are lovely, I made little christmassy scrabble tile ornaments one year - it's fun to come up with festive words to spell out! I'm looking forward to finding them in the boxes when we get the decorations out again this year!

  8. I love playing Scrabble. I bought a French Scrabble game once and I just can't bear to use any of the tiles for crafts! But maybe someday I will?? I love all of the Scrabble repurposes that I see. Thank you for sharing at Best of the Weekend. I will be featuring you tomorrow. Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. I never thought of Lego pieces as backing. Now I have something else to look for at yard sales!

  10. These are absolutely adorable! How clever of you to use paint stirrers for the backing. And how lucky to have a friend who gave you a bunch of Scrabble tiles!

    Thanks so much for joining the Grace at Home party at Imparting Grace. I’m featuring you this week!

  12. I made them this year. I used the cover of a Christmas decorated shirtbox to frame (it was a red truck!) Couldn't bear to throw the sides of the box out; it was rigid enough. Made family and pet names as well as Christmas words!

    The Scrabble inspired ornament would be a great addition to our tree.

  14. Good day, I have a question about the ribbon. How do you do the ribbon part- I’m don’t think I am doing it right.

    1. Hi Karlann - I hope I can explain this so you can picture it..... I cut a length of ribbon, and fed the 2 ends through the hole, front to back. When I had a loop in the front, I fed the ends through the loop and pulled it tight. The two ends were knotted and it was ready to hang. Does that help?
