Looking for an easy project you can make in an hour? Here are the step-by-step instructions to make this DIY Scrabble Tile Christmas tree.
Last week I wrote a to be continued….
….and I never even knew it.
Blame it on Christmas brain.
Last week I showed you these pictures of the tree and the ornaments and the snow globe…
And I totally forgot the other side of the room.
I was going to post it as a teaser for the scrabble tile Christmas tree.
And I shook the snow globe…
I know you were waiting with bated breath.
I know you probably had absolutely nothing else to focus on this weekend except the wondering and hoping and expectancy of when.
When is she going to post the other side of the room?
Here it is.
In all its glory.
The long-awaited other side of the snow globe.
And I made that scrabble tile Christmas tree just for you.
Here’s the easy DIY if you want to make one of your own.
DIY scrabble Christmas tree
Step 1: supplies
Start with scrabble letters and a chalkboard.
I collect scrabble letters from yard sales and my mother’s attic.
But you can find them in packets at your local craft store.
My brother made this chalkboard for me, but any old chalkboard will do for this project.
step 2: lay out your design
You want to start by laying out your carol or Christmas tree quote.
I chose “O Christmas Tree.”
Lay out the tiles before you glue them down to get an idea of the size of your tree.
step 3: glue
Then glue them in place.
I would not recommend hot glue for this project.
You want a glue with a little give.
You can also move the tiles around after you’ve glued them just in case they get out of line.
step 4: keep gluing
Just keep gluing the tiles until you’ve formed your tree.
step 5: add chalkboard star and base
I added a chalkboard star at the top and a little tree base at the bottom.
The glue dried quickly and then I placed the scrabble tiled Christmas tree on the other side of the snow globe.
It’s an easy project with tons of possibilities.
What about stocking with the first lines of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas?
Or an ornament with Deck the Halls.
May all your scrabble tile projects be merry and bright. 🙂
