Hello my friends!

This might just be the last time I post until Christmas.  Mr. Oopsey Daisy has finally arrived back in town after 2 weeks of busy travels, and we are in full-time Christmas mode.  Today's Scrabble tile ornament/gift embellishment is a quick-and-easy gift you can pull off in just a few minutes.  For the procrastinators (like myself!)...

I don't know about you, but time is short for me this holiday season.  Today I am sharing a quick-and-easy tutorial for creating a Scrabble Tile ornament.  You could give this as a gift, add it to a gift wrapping, or use it as a favor!  The best part is it's easy!

You know you're a crazy crafter when...

You take a brand new (but slightly dusty) Scrabble game and raid it for crafting supplies!

I searched my local thrift stores for a used Scrabble game, but came up empty!  Instead, I ransacked our very own game of Scrabble!  I justified this because we have never played Scrabble in our house.ever. It was begging to be used!

I started out by picking out the letters I wanted to use...

I love me a "Holly Jolly" Christmas!

I tried out a few types of glue, but I finally settled on the good stuff:  Gorilla Glue.  I have found that the secret to my success with Gorilla Glue is using the tiniest amount possible!  The hardest part of this project was waiting for the glue to set up.  I waited about an hour.

To make this an ornament, I hot glued a ribbon loop to the back.  Easy peasy!

This is a festive touch to our Christmas tree!

But I am really loving this as a gift embellishment.  Imagine creating Scrabble tile gift tags for your presents!  I think I will have to make just a few more of these...

It's a fun way to dress up any gift... PLUS it's an ornament, too.  And that, my friends, is a Double Score!

I'm wishing you all a very "Holly Jolly" holiday season!

    You can purchase extra tiles from the game site…100 tiles I believe for $ 6.95…you may have to google it…but there are cheaper at the actual site then on Ebay…That way you can make a lot of them
