 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.
Begin by sketching out on paper the best way to arrange the letters.  My cute friend bought a Scrabble game at the thrift store to make a family name piece for a friend.  Then she created one for her family.  The leftover pieces came to me...but there were not the letters I needed.  Easy fix!

You will need:

Scrabble Tiles
Antique White and Territorial Beige Apple Barrel Paint
Black Apple Barrel Paint
Small Paintbrush
Frame with Cardboard Backing
Scrapbooking Paper
Hot Glue/Gun
If you are like me, and don't have the letters you need, just turn the tile over and paint your own letters right on the tile.  Here's the basic shapes and the number value.
After the tiles are set up and ready to mount to the frame...remove the glass from the frame and place the scrapbook paper into the frame with the cardboard backing.  Use adhesive tape to secure the scrapbook paper to the cardboard.  Set up the scrabble arrangement on the top of the paper.
Then place a dot of glue on the back of the tile, starting with the top pieces.  Then place them on the paper.
Repeat until each letter is securely placed.
Hang up somewhere the kids can see their names!  Even though I have teenagers, my kids have loved this!

  1. hello and good day!! I am super interested in trying this way of making a frame for my mother of all the grand children.. what I was wondering is... is the glass ever used in this project or is it left to be used at another time ? please and thank you

    1. I just put the glass behind the paper, so it is sturdy in the frame. :)
