Scrabble Tiles Family Name Framed Word Art DIY

 Scrabble Tiles Family Name Framed Word Art DIY Scrabble!  Do you like playing Scrabble?  I love this game, it's one of my favorites.  I love spelling and word games.  However, no one likes to play them with me--haha.  This is the solution! Make a custom piece to hang in your home or give as a gift.  Make one for grandma and grandpa with all the grandkid names.  Do your family names fit in a scrabble layout?  We did 3 sets of family names and were able to work out each family pretty quickly.  I don't have any hints on making it easier.
