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.

Step 1: Arrange your words

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.
<p>very nice idea</p>
Funny I was looking for near Scrabble ideas for my website, http://wordunscrambler.com , and stumbled onto your decoration. <br> I thought you would put 2 green LED's on the sides or maybe and green and red. <br> But this old fashioned style is much better. Classic.
Such a cute idea! I think I'll make these as stocking stuffers.
LOVE THIS! I have tons and tons of scrabble letters that I've collected over the years from thrift stores. Couple this with a craft show coming up in two weeks and I have the perfect unique item! THANK YOU for posting!
