#NUO2013 Scrabble Ornaments
It begins, the 2013 No Ugly Ornament Series! This year we’re doing things a little different, for one thing, I’m posting in the morning and evening every night this week, you can read more about it here and check out the preview ornament!
As for as the ornaments I’ll be featuring this week, well, I’ve had a list of ornaments that I say I’m going to make every year but I’ve never actually gotten around to creating until now. It was a regular ornament making marathon! Case in point, today’s little bauble the Scrabble tile ornament. These were so easy I don’t know what kept me from putting them together sooner!
- Scrabble tiles
- wood glue
- power drill
- glitter pipe cleaners
First things first my daughter and I lined out all the words we wanted to put together. Then I called my husband over and nicely asked him to drill holes into the tops of the tiles. I couldn’t tell you what size bit was used, sorry. Once he was done I simply glued them together and let them dry with some of the other ornaments I’ll be sharing later this week.
Once they were dry and sturdy, I thread the pipe cleaners, which also added a pop of color, through the holes and they were ready to go! I’m so happy I finally have Scrabble ornaments for the tree!
Those are definitely very cute ornaments. I've even seen Scrabble pieces used as earrings, too...very cute and whimsical all at the same time :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)ReplyDelete

So looking forward to seeing what everyone creates.
Darling. Once I get going on ornaments, I can just keep going, usually right up until Christmas Eve. Will be checking in often to see your ornaments. LindaReplyDelete
Yay for the No Ugly Ornaments Series! I can't believe it's that time of hear already. I love your Scrabble tile ornaments. I'm a sucker for anything with text so I think those are wonderful!ReplyDelete
Hi, These are lovely. It's spooky as I have some scrabble tiles all ready and an idea for making a christmassy thing with them, not quite the same as this, I just haen't got round to making it yet! Great minds think alike!!!ReplyDelete
