What better way to celebrate our love for scrabble and keep things not-so-stuffy around here than to make some wall art.
I found these old cabinet doors while shopping this weekend. They are perfect squares and are sealed and smooth! Best of all, they are big, 14"X14". I grabbed 5 to play with.
My first thought was to paint the letters on but that is sooooo time consuming! I wondered through Home Depot looking for other options. Then I ran across contact paper. It is used to line shelves with. It is my new favorite tool!
There are a couple of awesome things about contact paper:
1. you can draw right on it with a pencil and erase if you have to.
2. There is a grid on the back for keeping things straight
3. It is not permanent. Once you place it down, you can pick it up and move it if you have to!
4. It comes with 25 sq.ft!
I drew the letters on, cut them out, put them on and voila! A SCRABBLE tile!
M looked a little lonely so I made her some friends. (I know the heart tile does not really exist, but if it did, it would be worth the most!)
Future location TBD..... crafting backwards, again :) stay tuned
Let me know if you try it!
If that is not your thing, they are on my ETSY store, too.
