Scrabble Wall Art

Sunday, March 4, 2012

At a gift shop near my house, I saw a similar Scrabble wall art that used all of the names of the local towns and lakes.  It was cool, but it was $200!  
I had an old scrabble game at home that I used for mine. I had to buy another game at goodwill to get more of the letters that I needed, but that only cost $1.99.
The letters are just glued to the board, which is inside a shadowbox I bought at Michaels. 
I used "family game room" words to create mine.

To make things easier, I created a crossword puzzle on-line to determine the word layout.  I typed in the number of squares and the words I wanted to use, and it created the crossword for me. So much easier than trying to figure it out on my own!  I used this site, but I'm sure any puzzle maker site would work.

  1. How big of a frame did you end up having to get?

    1. The frame is 16" x 16", just a little bit bigger than the Scrabble board I used.
