We like to make handmade gifts to family members and friends for birthdays and holidays. My brother received this for his past birthday. Miss.-2yr-old (at the time) was able to help assemble.
The plaque was inspired when my husband received a pile of scrap wood for us to burn in our wood burner.
There were several foot-long lengths of molding that resembled a scrabble tile holder. My mind started spinning and a project was visually created.
Next I googled scrabble letter tiles and found a lot to choose from. I played around with different tiles until I was able to print the size, look and quality that worked well for me.
I Mod Podged them onto square cardboard pieces (for future use I am thinking of a wooden material).
Then hot glued them to the scrap piece.
The coasters are from www.incrediblethings.com. I bought a scrabble game at a garage sale for a buck. This set had 4 coasters, but one full game can maybe make a set of 6 if you choose. I hot glued them to cardboard. Felted the back and trimmed the edge with twine. I tried to hide meaningful words in the coaster, but it was tough with the limitation of letters and 4-letter words.
