Is everyone ready for today's Pinterest challenge? I know I'm excited to share my project and can't wait to see what everybody else came up with. Pinterest in general just makes me tinkle in my pants with joy! So let's get to it!
Lately I have been obssessed with games like Words With Friends, Wordosaur, Scrabble and any other word games that make me use my noggin. If you ever want to play with me you can come over. I promise I'm not weird. Well, only a little. Anyways, the obvious choice was to make something involving Scrabble letters. Meet my inspiration pin:
Online these babies go for $26, but with a little crafting and an old scrabble game, these can be yours for practically free!
Here are the materials you need:
- 64 scrabble letters (check yard sales, thrift stores, or order some on Ebay or Amazon if you don't have any on hand)
- 1 thin cork board (buy at any craft store)
- 1 x-acto knife
- super glue
- hot glue gun
Arrange 16 letters to make 4 words that you are happy with on your coasters (Ex. Beer, Wine, Hope, Love, etc.)
Glue letters together using a thin layer of super glue leaving about 15 seconds to dry between each letter.
Using an x-acto knife, follow along blocks closely while cutting into cork leaving a clean line. Use a glue gun to attach the cork to letters. I let it dry for a good hour or so.
Spray a very thin layer of clear coat or modgepodge over coaster to protect wood from moisture. I used Rustoleum's clear enamel that seemed to do the trick. Let dry for a full day.
Pour yourself a nice cold beverage and enjoy your work!
These would also make great gifts for the holidays for any of you creative peeps on a budget!
