Looking for a really simple, easy but meaningful gift for the grandparents? When my husband was a kid, his family used to play Scrabble all of the time. I had seen large scrabble tiles used for wall collages saying words like “FAMILY” or “HOME”. I wanted to do a pared down version using all of the grandkids’ names.
You will need:
- Strong adhesive (glue gun, E6000, etc…)
- Scrabble letters (Tally up how many of each letter you will need so you know how many sets to buy.)
- Shadow box frame preferably with matting
- Printed or colored paper for the background (enough sheets for a redo if needed, see below)
Lay out your “scrabble board” on your background paper with the mat board so you know where to center them. I took one of the letters I knew I probably would not use (Q) and drew a heart with a black sharpie on back.
One thing I always think about when using the grandkids or kids names is what happens when you know your family is still growing? That’s why this project is so perfect, because of how simple it is, it would be easy to pull off the letters and make a new one for additional names!
