{DIY Tutorial} Scrabble Blocks!

Hello all you ABN crafters! Jen here again from Sweeten Your Day to share with you another fun craft/home decor inspiration! Our family loves to play games so much, it is some of our fondest memories with friends too. So today I am going to show you how to  make scrabble-inspired home decor!

Supplies:

Wood Blocks ( if you have a scroll saw you can cut your own, if not the nice people at the  hardware store can cut them for you at any size you like)

Vinyl Letters and Numbers (you could use stickers too)

Clear Acrylic Gloss Spray Paint

Optional items:

Vinyl Stencil

Acrylic Paint and Foam Brush

 You can use a Cricut, Silhouette machine, or stickers to add your letters and numbers. Mine were cut to 3 1/2″ for the letters (2″ smaller than the block) and 1″ for the numbers.

Mark an inch from the top and bottom to center you letters with a pencil

Carefully adhere your vinyl on the block centered in the middle and erase any pencil marks that may be showing.

P.S. I put letters on both sides of my blocks so I could get more use and variety out of them!

Now here is a fun little trick that I love to do with vinyl as well, making them into stencils, if you want to add a little color and variety. Instead of using the actual heart cut out from your vinyl, I peeled that out and saved the outer scraps. Center the heart on your block, then paint over it.

Let dry a little and peel off your vinyl, Awww!

Now take them all outside and give them a couple coats of the clear spray paint to seal and give that glossy finish

Let them dry and viola! You know have a fun new and simple decoration :)

I spelled out our family last name, if you have a longer name – bonus points!

 

Flip them over to have another decor option…

Thanks for checking out our fun little tutorial and I hope it inspires you to create something new!

    I love this idea, what size wood blocks did you use for your project? I have visions of great Christmas gifts this year.
