You won’t believe how much fun these Scrabble Christmas ornaments were to make! The perfect Christmas craft for a crafting day with friends. Today I’ll share the best places to find more Scrabble letters when you run out… ’cause I’m sure you’ll get addicted to making these just like I did!
I’m a hoarder.
I don’t hoard everything… just craft supplies and little vintage doo-dads. Things like Scrabble tiles. I’ve got hundreds of them! But that doesn’t stop me from buying every old Scrabble game I come across at thrift stores and garage sales!
Please tell me I’m not the only one.
I’m going to guess that because you’re reading this, you probably have your own stash of Scrabble tiles at home. Hopefully you’ll be inspired to use a few of them after you see some of our Scrabble tile projects.

How I Organize My Scrabble Tiles
I’m like a magnet for Scrabble tiles and somehow just keep collecting them. A few years ago I found this metal storage box at a thrift store so I can keep them all organized. I think it was originally a slide storage box. Does it look familiar to anyone?
A few other organization ideas for you serious hoarder/collectors:
- hardware cabinet organizer with drawers
- stacking hardware bins
- portable hardware organizer – These make it easy to stash these in a closet.
- craft supply organizer boxes with dividers
- zipper baggies – If you have NO budget for storage containers, just use baggies!
Supplies for Scrabble Christmas Ornaments
- Scrabble tiles – I’ve found mine at thrift stores and garage sales but I JUST found out that you can buy extra letters online! And did you know you can get different colors ?!?
- wood pieces – Mine were paint samples from a friend’s store.
- E6000 glue
How to Make Ornaments with Scrabble Tiles
We started by just spreading out all our Scrabble tiles on the table. It was a lot of fun to see how many words we could come up with. Do you see any we missed?
I’ll give you a little tip. If you’re going to sell them, our best selling words were:
- LET IT SNOW
I’d love to hear what sells well for you. Leave a comment and let me know.
Yes, Lauren’s wearing her winter coat in the house. Even though she lived in Canada she still gets cold in our house. It’s so much warmer here in Northern California but I just don’t think the houses here are insulated like they are in Canada!
Let it snow! We just dream of snow here… or drive to Tahoe!
After arranging and rearranging several times we glued down the tiles with E6000 glue. I wouldn’t recommend hot glue for these… especially if you’re selling them. After a while the tiles will pop off. But E6000 will hold down anything! Plus it’s nice that it doesn’t dry immediately. You’ll have a few minutes to adjust your letters.
There was already a hole in one end of my wood slats. But I did drill tiny holes in the HUMBUG ornaments with my Dremel.
I added a piece of jute to hang most of them. The HUMBUG got a wire hanger.
Then these took a trip up to Roses and Rust with us!
Lauren even came up with a special message for me!
