(craft tutorial) scrabble tile photo holder gift

by Melanie of Reasons To Skip The Housework for See Vanessa Craft

Scrabble Tile Photo Holders are the perfect gift for moms, dads, grads, and even as a simple handmade touch for your own home decor. This is a great summer craft project for bored teenagers looking for something to do or trade in the hot glue gun for tacky glue and your little ones can get in on the crafting action. How cute would these look on a bookshelf or office desk?!

To make Scrabble Tile Photo Holders, you only need:

Scrabble Tiles
Scrabble Tile Trays
Hot Glue
Mini Clothespins

1. Paint your Scrabble Trays. I used a silver acrylic paint and then used a silver Glitter Spray Paint to add a silver shimmering touch.

2. After your trays have dried, glue on the letters to the front of the tray.

3. Place your photo into the clothespins so you can get the spacing correct on the back of the tray.

4. Put hot glue onto the “front” {facing the scrabble tray side} of the clothespins and press the clothespins to the back of the Scrabble tray.

4. Allow 10 minutes for the hot glue to setup, and then you can change out your pictures.

You can print Instagram photos for the “square” look or use 4×6 photos that you may already have printed out to add to your Scrabble Tile Photo Holder!
