Scrabble tile ornaments-in-progress
Over the summer, I bought a Scrabble game solely for the tiles. Now that it's December 18, I figured it was time to actually use some of the tiles to make something. I found these little ornaments on Pinterest:
But sawing the letter trays is beyond me. Or at least beyond what I was prepared to do at the time. I made a set of "love", "hope", "peace" and "joy" (the 4 Sundays of advent) for someone who reads this blog, so you can't see them until after Christmas.
Then I spoke to my sister who had also seen this Pinterest photo and suggested a vertical orientation and since I had the letters left over, I made ornaments for my kids. I glued the letters I needed to a strip of cardstock. Then I glued the ribbon loop to the back of the cardstock before adding another layer of the wooden tiles (blank side facing out). I'm in the midst of putting Stickles down the sides (see below), but it takes a lot of drying time, so I'm afraid you're seeing these in progress and not quite completed! I added some beads at the bottom of the ribbon for extra colour and fun!
