Scrabble Tile Coasters

I saw this great idea on Pinterest.  Doesn’t everything come from Pinterest these days?  It’s so easy and I absolutely love it!  Okay, back to the idea.  Scrabble tile coasters!  How cute are these?!?!  Do I say that about everything?  I do.  Apparently I’m pretty free with my love of food and crafts.  Well rounded I’d like to call myself.  =o)

Anyways, I digress….. they originally came from the site Incredible Things.

But really… aren’t they cute?!?!  You can make all different ones depending on your four letter words.  (Snicker, snicker…)  No really.  Four letter words fit nicely.  Or you could make them a tad bigger and use five letter words.  For our project we went with four letter words.

My kids had a great time coming up with the words.  We made these for their Grampa (hence the Papa.)   But you can customize them to anything.

Adult coasters could read:
Brew, Suds, Hops, Beer
Cold, Stir, Iced, Lime

Be creative and let your imagination run wild!

We used Gorilla Glue (I’m not sure if I like that or not) to glue the tiles together.  Once they were stuck together, I glued felt to the back and then sprayed it with a sealant.  Next time we make these I will use a cardboard coaster under the tiles to help guide me to make them straight and give them a little more stability.

I’m linking to the parties on my sidebar.

  1. What a fun gift! Love it! Pinned it so we can make these together. Thanks for sharing!

  2. But its soo cute! Gotta love pintrest…. although it is a GIANT time sucker 🙂 …..I wonder if you applied them to the underside of a clear tile could it be a ‘pot’ holder for Nana’s kitchen?

  3. I LOVE how these turned out. I’ve been toying with the idea of making something like this for a while. I was going to make mine out of graphics, but I love the idea of using real scrabble tiles. Hubby is a HUGE scrabble lover so these might make a wonderful gift for his birthday next month!

    Thanks for sharing on Shindig Saturday. Now I’m going to have to go ‘PIN’ this idea and get sucked in there. Thanks. (grin)

  4. These are adorable! What a great gift, and the ideas are endless!
    I linked to you from Six Sisters Stuff. Thanks!

  5. What a great idea! Now to find old Scrabble games at the thrift store… Actually I wouldn’t be suprised if that gets more and more difficult with all the great Scrabble tile craft ideas out there now. Pretty soon it will be Cabbage Patch DOll-esque fights in the check out lines in thrift stores all over the country! (Sorry, getting a little carried away over here…)

  6. great idea! You can personalized this gift for those hard to buy for friends! Love it!

  7. These are really cute! What a great Father’s Day gift that would make, or any day gift for that matter:)

  8. Great Idea! Thanks for sharing.
    Wish I had some tiles!!!!

  9. those are so cute! love the cheesy smile on your little girl – she is proud of herself (and rightly so!) How about trying a roll of cork? That’s what I use for the bottom of my tile coasters (you can get it on a big roll at Target for like $10) and I used E6000 glue for mine.

  10. Very cute! Just pinned it!

  11. What a cute and clever gift! Love it!!

  15. Okay, I know you found it on Pinterest but…great idea1 I LOVE it. (I’ve actually got some teeny-tiny little letters that would be fun to use as well, although, it take some serious planning to make them all make sense…hmmm).
