For the second DIY of Christmas, I made DIY Scrabble Letter Ornaments!
I saw these several years ago and have been wanting to make them ever since. So glad I finally got them done and they fit my white and black with touches of red decor theme this year too.
Supplies needed (affiliate links included for your convenience):
- Scrabble letters
- hot glue
So in all my thrifting and yard sale shopping, I looked for an old Scrabble game and found one for $1 at a yard sale. If you can’t find one secondhand, you can pick up a set of 100 Scrabble letters for $5 on Amazon.
This would be a fun project to do with your elementary and up age kids – have them see how many Christmas words they can think of and spell out with the letters. I wanted words that related to the Christmas story and these are the words I came up with.
There are several ways you can glue them together. If you were having kids do it, I would use Elmer’s or wood glue and glue the letters onto a wood craft/popsicle stick. You should be able to cut the popsicle stick with a strong pair of scissors to the length you need. I couldn’t find my popsicle sticks so I opted to just glue the letters to each other using hot glue. And then glued a piece of ribbon to the back to hang it with. I did all of these in about 20 minutes.
Then hang them on the tree or even adorn a package with them!
I think these would be adorable on a small tree – they would show up and be even more prominent.`
Or even put them all on a wreath to make a statement.
I just love how they tell the Christmas story in simple little words.
Simple, easy, inexpensive and a fun family project!
