I am so incredibly honored to have one of my friends, Alison, to contribute today! Alison is kind of like my blogging rockstar… and I am dying over this adorable idea! Great as an ornament, a decoration, and even a gift (you could totally frame this after Christmas for some beautiful decor!). Please help me welcome Alison of Oopsey Daisy!!!
Hello Sweet C’s!
My name is Alison, and my little blogging home is called Oopsey Daisy.
I share the twists and turns of my crafting adventures on my blog. I pull out a lot of stitches. I make a lot of messes. I scrap A LOT of projects that just don’t work. (Don’t tell my hubby, though!) I love to create in all sorts of ways! I sew, mod podge, glitter, ruffle, paint, photograph, and teach!
Courtney and I go way back. In fact, we went to high school together! Her creative ideas always inspire me. I love Courtney’s “Give Great Gifts” series because I love (and need!) to simplify!
I don’t know about you, but time is short for me this holiday season. Today I am sharing a quick-and-easy tutorial for creating a Scrabble Tile ornament. You could give this as a gift, add it to a gift wrapping, or use it as a favor! The best part is it’s easy!
You know you’re a crazy crafter when…
You take a brand new (but slightly dusty) Scrabble game and raid it for crafting supplies!
I searched my local thrift stores for a used Scrabble game, but came up empty! Instead, I ransacked our very own game of Scrabble! I justified this because we have never played Scrabble in our house.ever. It was begging to be used!
I started out by picking out the letters I wanted to use…
I love me a “Holly Jolly” Christmas!
I tried out a few types of glue, but I finally settled on the good stuff: Gorilla Glue. I have found that the secret to my success with Gorilla Glue is using the tiniest amount possible! The hardest part of this project was waiting for the glue to set up. I waited about an hour.
To make this an ornament, I hot glued a ribbon loop to the back. Easy peasy!
This is a festive touch to our Christmas tree!
But I am really loving this as a gift embellishment. Imagine creating Scrabble tile gift tags for your presents! I think I will have to make just a few more of these…
It’s a fun way to dress up any gift… PLUS it’s an ornament, too. And that, my friends, is a Double Score!
You are all welcome to stop by Oopsey Daisy any time! I have several other gift ideas over at my place.
Thanks, Courtney, for hosting me today!
I’m wishing you all a very happy holiday season!
