Gift Idea

Good Morning!

Do you have someone on your gift list that you have no idea what to get them?

Here's an idea:

It's a framed Scrabble board. It's very personal and fun to make.

Here's how:

  1. Make a word list of important places, people, experiences, inside jokes, pets etc
  2. Using a scrabble board, lay out the words in a pattern. Start with the longest word and build from there
  3. When you're pleased with the arrangement, glue down wood pieces with white school glue (it doesn't have any gasses and won't fog up the glass frame later).
  4. You can have it professionally framed or put in in a premade frame.
  5. Wrap and prepare for a thrilled recipient!

The first framed board was a gift to my husband for our anniversary and the second one was a board we made for his dear, sweet grandmother. When she passed away, we got it back. We've given these to our parents and friends and they are much loved.

Hope you enjoy making and giving this gift.

Have a nice day!
