I love crafts and they are especially fun during the holidays! When I came across these DIY scrabble ornaments, I had to make them this year! I love Scrabble and playing it with friends and family on Words with Friends, so it was a logical idea for a cute ornament to give to friends, family and more on gifts or just because!

This is what you need to make these fun ornaments!


  • wooden Scrabble trays and tiles
    **I purchased this Scrabble Me set and was able to make 8 ornaments from it
  • ribbon, cut into 5-6″ lengths
  • pencil
  • miter or hand saw
  • white glue


To start, decide on the words/names you’ll be making. I did a mix of last names (friends and family) and short holiday words like “Joy”, “Elf” and “Hope.” Lay these out on your wooden trays, pairing the words to make the most of the trays. Line the letters up to the outside edges and mark the tray on the inside edge of each word with a pencil.

Remove the letters and cut the trays with a miter saw. This is the most involved part… so be prepared to put in a little man power with the saw! I also sanded the edges a little to make sure the ends were smooth.

Put a small amount of white glue in the center of the tray, stick the ends of the ribbon onto the glue in the center. Add additional glue along the tray and begin to stick the tiles on the tray. Let sit to dry, best to let sit overnight before hanging.

You should try it out yourself! They are super cute! Check them out on 101 Days of Christmas – Christmas Your Way.
