Valentine's Day Scrabble Tile Art

Valentine's Day Scrabble Tile Art

When we were first married my husband used to play Scrabble with me all the time. (We even played it to pass the time when we were waiting for our first baby to arrive.) It was a few years into our marriage before he admitted that it really wasn't his favorite game, but he played it with me because he knew I enjoyed it. That's true love, right there! 
When I came across these Valentime-themed wooden Scrabble stickers, I knew I had to have them. Here's how I made this super easy Valentine's Day Scrabble tile decoration.

1. Gather your supplies. I used:
1 matted red frame
1 set of Valentine's Day tile letter stickers
 heart ribbon
1 pink piece of card stock

2. Figure out the spacing of your stickers. 
I measured the tiles and the opening on the mat and then printed off a "cheat-sheet" grid on my pink cardstock. You could probably eyeball it, but it never hurts to be a little bit cautious and it only took me a minute or two to set up and print the grid. I also had to trim the paper just a bit so it would fit in the frame.
(You could easily make different configurations of the words; make them more crossword-like etc., but I really liked them as they were, which is why I didn't change the placement.)

3. Reassamble the frame, and add ribbon.

  1. I've made a few crafts with old scrabble tiles but it's hard to collect enough to write a lot so these stickers are brilliant. I love your tip for getting them spaced nicely.
    And I love your romantic story - that's real love right there!

  5. Very cute idea!! I wish I had seen these stickers during my last Michael's haul crawl! The grid is perfect, I'm too OCD to ever go without spacing, lol.
