5 Scrabble Tile DIY Gifts
Scrabble letter tiles are great for kids learning how to spell and recognize words, and they’re great for crafting too! Here are 5 crafts kids can make with parent’s help for themselves or as grandparent diy gifts this holiday season.
It’s simple and can be made anyway you want! Choose the letter tiles to create the word you want and turn them over. Glue a small piece of a popsicle stick to the back to keep the letters together using a strong glue.
Attach a festive ribbon to hang.
Cut pieces of cork or felt into squares (it doesn’t have to be perfect because you can trim later).
Lay out tiles on the square creating words throughout.
Glue tiles to the felt or cork as well as to each other on the sides to create stability.
So simple, but a fun statement. Blank rings can be found at any craft store.
Glue the letter of your choice to the blank ring.
Create a name, word or just initials with a fun necklace. Gather together cording, beads, the blank charm (found at craft stores) and Scrabble tiles.
Glue letters to the charms.
String beads and charms onto the cording.
Tie the end or use hooks found at a craft store in the jewelry making isle.
You can buy adhesive (or glue on) magnets in most craft stores or isles or cut up and use the magnets from the old pizza shop down the road.
Cut magnets to size and adhere to the back of the tiles either individually or as an entire word.
Fun, crafty and educational!
