Framed Quote Written in Scrabble Tiles

One of my best friends, and birthday buddies, from high school is starting her graduate studies in English!  Our favorite class together was English in high school, and so I wanted to make her an English-y gift using Scrabble tiles!

Introducing: Framed Quote Written in Scrabble Tiles

featured image scrabble
Age Range: 12+ years old

Cost: $$$ out of $$$$

What You’ll Need:

  • A quote
  • A frame big enough to fit your entire quote
  • Scrabble tiles
  • Hot glue (or other glue)
  • Optional: backing paper (cardstock, wrapping paper, etc.)

Instructions:

  1.  Map out your quote  in the Scrabble tiles in the frame.  Figure out how you want to arrange the words.  The quote I chose for my friends is Shakespeare’s “words, words, words.”

2.  Carefully glue the Scrabble tiles in position and fit the glass (or leave the frame without glass) back into the frame.  The glass might not even fit once all the tiles are in!

The Scrabble tiles ended up being pretty expensive, which was unexpected.  But I love the look, and I know my friend would love it, too!  This could make a great gift for an English teacher 🙂
