Easy Does It
My husband and I are very competitive with each other. We haven’t played tennis together since the spring of 2011 because of this. It’s better for our marriage that way. However, we do have one competitive past-time that we’ll never let go of: our Scrabble battles. We bought our home almost 3 years ago while it was still under construction. The last few months of apartment living we decided to get by with just the bare necessities to save money. No gym membership. No cable. All we had was Scrabble. I might be dramatizing this more than I need too but none the less-we had some hotly contested Scrabble matches and still do. It’s out favorite game. We have 3 sets, a personalized official Scrabble dictionary, and our daughters name in vinyl Scrabble tiles on her bedroom wall. So when I saw Scrabble coasters for sale on etsy, I thought, “I could make those!” And I did.
For this project you need:
- Cork board
- Glue gun
- Scrabble tiles
It’s really pretty simple. Create your words and glue them to the cork board and you’re done.
I made 3. One as an ode to my diet soda obsession, another to express my love of Starbucks, and the third I was feeling lovey since my husband and are celebrating 6 years together this weekend. I love them. This is a fun project for any scrabble lover, would make a cute housewarming gift, or you could incorporate names for shower favor. Hope you have fun making yours. Until next time.
