Hello all you ABN crafters! Jen here again from Sweeten Your Day to share with you another fun craft/home decor project, these DIY farmhouse scrabble tiles! 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!
DIY Farmhouse Scrabble Tiles:
- 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
- Clear Acrylic Gloss Spray Paint
Step 1: 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.
Step 2: Mark an inch from the top and bottom to center you letters with a pencil
Step 3: 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!
Step 4: 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!
Step 5: 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!
