My dear friend had her first child this year and I wanted to make her an ornament for her  childs' first Christmas tree. Some years ago my friend and I were on a "girls" vacation at Lake Placid, New York, it was just this same time of year, winter, pre 
Christmas. We stayed at a wonderful place, snow everywhere and a fireplace around every corner. In the evening we would have dinner, grab some hot cider and play scrabble. I thought it would be a good idea to incorporate a memory into her baby girls gift.The babies name is Avery but as I was setting out the letters I realized that if I put a bit of space between the A & the V,  I could incorporate a Christmas message. A Very Merry Christmas. 

Another good friend saw the ornament and liked it so much that I thought it would be fun to make Christmas tree ornaments for her entire family.

Step 1: Supplies

The supplies are basic as long as you have an old scrabble game
letter tiles
tile holders
glue (I use epoxy)
screw eyes (tiny)
Also markers or metallic markers if you 
want to date or write message. 
Very nice! Thanks for sharing your hard work! <br>sunshiine
