DIY Craft Fair Monogrammed Scrabble Ornaments

Every year I make a new Christmas ornament using
Scrabble tiles.

This year I began with a box of blocks from Target that were made to resemble the game Jenga®.

I used a DIY aging stain to darken the color.

I added a small clothespin and a Scrabble piece to each block.

At the bottom of each block I added a chain of 3 glass crystals from a lamp I repurposed a while back. I told you you'd see them again!

On the top of the block I added a tiny screw eye and a length of gold or silver string. 

I clipped a silver key under the clothespin.

  1. You inspired me with previous use of Jenga blocks and I scored a complete box for $1 at a rummage sale. What do you use to cover up the "jenga" logo. (I see that these are from Target and probably don't have that problem!)

    1. Hi Michelle! The box from Target didn't have the Jenga logo but others I've used have and I just left it there. I think it is a cool little sign on the side of each block! Have fun!
