I saw this idea in a magazine a few years ago and have been on the lookout for a used Scrabble set ever since. If you're a Scrabble/word game nerd like me, they'll be a nice addition to your collection of ornaments.
This is a quick and easy little project. Plus, they make great gift ornaments because you can personalize them!
First, you will need to find a sacrificial Scrabble game. You can either track one down at a thrift store or yard sale, or use that old set you've got tucked away up in the closet. I guess you could buy a new set to use, but that seems a bit wasteful. The set I eventually found was an old one my mom had, and it was missing a bunch of tiles and one of the trays.
Organize some words you like, making sure they will fit evenly on the trays. I decided to go with shorter words because they looked better as an ornament. Also, you don't have to just use holiday words. If these are to be a gift, you can put a person's name, or a family name, or whatever. I'm still on the lookout for another set so I can do each of my kids' names, too.
