Repurposed Vintage Scrabble Ornaments for Christmas

I love making Christmas ornaments, especially repurposed ornaments created from something that end up in the thrift store like these vintage Scrabble pieces.

This year I've been busy already because I've added a whole bunch of different repurposed ornaments to my Homeroad Etsy Shop. Black Friday is a great day to do a little shopping. Shop Small Business!

I've made all kinds but especially love the ornaments I created from vintage Scrabble ornaments and Jenga game pieces. 

These ornaments sold like hot cakes at my local craft fair so this year I've made whole bunch more in different styles and I'm pre-selling them on Homeroad Etsy.

I use E6000 to attach the vintage Scrabble tiles to the Jenga blocks. I drill holes into the top of the blocks then add a length of wire for a hanger. The hanger is also dipped in the glue so it is secure in the block. 

This style uses vintage tiles, Jenga blocks, and tiny wooden spools. Unfortunately or fortunately, they have sold out already.

Same here but I used silver beads to decorate the ornaments.

Check out the Homeroad Etsy Shop for many more lettered ornaments in several different styles!

This style is my very favorite! For these ornaments I used original vintage Scrabble pieces and the racks that came with the set. I used E6000 glue to attach the tiles to the racks that I cut in 1/2 then added a ribbon for hanging. These were so popular they sold out on Etsy and at last weeks craft fair!

This set is another favorite and is created with newer Scrabble tiles and 1"x1" trim pieces. I cut the trim pieces to size, drilled a hole in the top to add a hooked wire piece with mercury glass beads then attached the lettered tiles.

  1. Hi Susan, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. I always love your crafts and especially love the "snow" one. I love the added detail of the Jenga etched into the wood.
