Game Letter Ornaments

DSCF5072Game Letter Ornaments

This was a great project to use up wood scraps and “play” with game letter tiles.

I have no idea what game the black tiles came from, but the others came from an old Scrabble game.

DSCF5077I don’t have any pictures of the steps, but I kinda think they are self-explanatory. Just in case you need a little more info, I’ll run it down for you.DSCF5078

I first laid out all the Christmas words I could think of with the tiles I had.

DSCF5081Then I measured the length of the words and added a bit. Each lath was cut to the individual measurements of each word. Keeping track of that could have made me a little crazy, but I made a master list of all the words and measurements to save my sanity.

I drilled a hole for the hanger and gave each board a quick rub of stain.

DSCF5082The embellishments are bits of greenery, berries and tiny winter die cuts.

And glitter! Yay! Yep, glitter just makes me happy. :)

DSCF5084These will be making their debut at the craft show this weekend.

Enjoy!
