Introduction: Cork Board Scrabble Coasters
When following these instructions, users will be able to create about 6 4x4 scrabble piece coasters.
Step 1: Materials
-100 Scrabble tiles
-1 16 fl oz Modge podge bottle (shiny or matte depending on preference)
-Cork board (6in x 6in cork board 4 Pack)
-1 Pair of Scissors
-1 Paint brush
-E-6000 glue (for tighter hold)
-Exacto-knife (for closer cut)
Step 2: 4 Letter Words!
Select four 4-letter words from scrabble pieces.
Optional: Refer to Step 10 for possible word combinations.
Step 3: Lining Up Your Board
Lay 16 scrabble pieces in a 4x4 formation on the cork board.
Step 4: Tracing
Trace the outline of the letters to aid in cutting out a square from cork board.
Step 5: Cutting
Cut out cork board square with scissors or Exacto-knife. A little overhang of the scrabble tiles is perfectly fine.
(Tip: Exacto-knife will work better than scissors if available)
Step 6: Glueing
Glue down all pieces in desired letter pattern on cork board using E-6000 glue or Modge Podge. If any piece doesn’t stay glued down reapply a small amount of glue or Modge Podge.
Tip: Make sure to shake modge podge before using
Tip: Make sure to apply pressure when placing pieces onto glue
Step 7: Drying
While the Modge Podge dries for around 5 minutes, apply pressure to the top of pieces to provide tighter hold.
Step 8: Applying Finish
Apply thin, even coat of Modge Podge using a paint brush to the top and sides of cork board and scrabble pieces. After applying to the sides make sure to smooth the top again to remove clumps.
Step 9: Finishing Touches
Wait for Modge Podge to dry for at least 15 minutes before using product.
(The thicker the Modge Podge is applied, the longer drying time will be.)
