I have to be honest I’m rubbish at scrabble. I always try to hard to think of long words and miss those pesky, three letter, double-pointers *still sulking over a partners game a few weeks ago*!
I do wish I’d gone into the scrabble tile making business through… who would have thought they’d look so cute and quirky as place settings, table numbers, jewellery and on handmade stationary?! In fact maybe it’s not just me… maybe everyone else sits there acting like they’re thinking of words but are actually dreaming up crafty ways to use the little tiles?!
Anyway, here’s my latest scrabble epiphany…
To make them you will need… access to a printer, glue, scissors and little metal buckets (Hobbycraft)
How to make them…
Step 1 ~ Print out your letters and little numbers (I used font Times New Roman in Word) and cut them out as neatly as you can!
Step 2 ~ Glue them in place on your buckets (PVA glue works best but I used super strength prit stick which was fine)
And that’s it, super easy, cheap and sooooo cute!
What do you think? They’d be great as table centres as they’re fairly small… huge floral arrangements aren’t conducive to being social and chatting across tables!!
PS. I really wish that a) I had a better camera and b) I could take better photo’s… these look even better in real life / when not photographed by a novice ;-)
