Scrabble Coasters

One of my dear friends recently had a birthday party. I wanted to give her something simple and not over the top yet also said I cared. Something handmade, something fun, something she wanted. So, I made her some Scrabble coasters. :)


Probably not everyone would enjoy Scrabble coasters, but I knew she would--I searched through her Pinterest and found some things she had pinned and made a list of ideas from that, a list which included Scrabble coasters. In the end, I thought these coasers would be the most fun, so I took a trip to the thrift store and got lucky--they had Scrabble. :)


To make them, I just cut the scrabble board to be a little smaller than 5 x 5 Scrabble tiles and then used E6000 glue to adhere the tile pieces to the board. It was quick and easy and cute and thoughtful. Perfect.

It's that time of year again when everyone is thinking of gift giving.... I wish you well in trying to find meaningful gifts for everyone on your list. We'll have lots of good ideas coming your way.

Happy gift giving....
