Scrabble Clothespin Ornaments


 I collect vintage games, Dominoes, Cribbage, 
 Jenga, and of course Scrabble.


I've used the Scrabble letters in my mantel displays many times...


 and I just happen to have a whole jar of tiles just waiting for a great project...


Today I'm going to
  combine all those vintage Scrabble tiles....


with the antique clothespins I've been coveting...




add some of my favorite words....

and create some awesome vintage ornaments!

They pin to the branches easily and look perfect!

And no, I couldn't stop there....

For a little more fun I used some leftover tiles to spell my name, glue them to magnets and stick them to an old rusty tool on my desk!

Happy Holiday Season!

  3. Very cute idea, Susan! I bought JOY at an antique store recently and have been trying to decide how I want to display it. I should try and come up with something before Christmas is over! : )

  10. These Scrabble ornaments are SO CUTE!! I once bought a whole bunch of Scrabble tiles on Ebay so a group of us could play Speed Scrabble. So I've got lots of them to work with. Great idea! :-)
