Scrabble Letter Art


I've been a tad obsessed with scrabble letters lately, as you can see from my gift wrap display. I found an old Scrabble game with all the letters in tact at the D.I. for $2. I snatched it up, and I've been making things ever since. This is a little something I made for my SIL for Christmas. I'm always on the look out for non-cheesy LDS art. (although this message is obviously universal.)

Have I ever mentioned I'm really bad with step by step DIY posts? There's something about the organization and patience required that deters me. So I don't have step by step instructions, but I figure this one's pretty self explanatory. I used an old white frame, covered the glass with vintage fabric, and glued the Scrabble letters on to my liking. I think I'll make one for me next.
