I’m going to explain the inspiration for the DIY Scrabble Tile Ornament in the hopes that if you’ve found yourself in a similar predicament I can solve it for you. While browsing the personalized “named”ornaments in the Target Christmas section I couldn’t find any for my sons Finley and Pace. Although I love that their names are unique (for now) it does make finding personalized products more difficult.
Thats when I turned to Pinterest and found a similar craft, but decided to put my own spin on it. I’m thrilled with how cute they turned out for how easy they were to create. Cute, spirited and perfect for anyone in your life with a special name (like a term of endearment for Grandma, etc) the DIY Scrabble Tile Ornament is a simple craft that you can keep for yourself or gift to someone else. Also, I love that it pays homage to a timeless game that I grew up playing!
You will need:
- Glue Gun
- Scrabble Tiles
- 1 in. Ribbon
- Bows with twist tie
- Small Bells
Place the tiles for the name you’ve chosen on the ribbon so you will know how long you need to cut it. I left about 3 inches from the first letter to the top of the ribbon to have plenty of room for the bow. I gave about 2 inches at the bottom to provide space for the bell. Use the glue gun to adhere the tiles to the ribbon. Space them as desired. No need to steal scrabble tiles from the game. You can purchase them here.
For the bow, I purchased a swath of ones similar to this that I found at Michael’s. I would imagine you could get them from any craft store, just be sure they have the twist tie because that is the piece that will be used to hang it on the tree. Once the glue has dried for the tiles, glue the bow to the top of the ribbon and the bell at the bottom. Make sure the twist tie is at the top so it can be used as the hanger.
Viola! The DIY Scrabble Tile Ornament. An excellent small gift for a friend or coworker and great as a quick stocking stuffer.
