DIY Scrabble Name Frame

diy scrabble name frame

I still had a bunch of scrabble tiles left from last project, and found a way to make perfect use of them – connecting the names of our small family in a DIY Scrabble Name Frame. Luckily for us none of us have the Norwegian letters ร†, ร˜ or ร… in our names, thus I could use the same set of tiles not having to steal from grandma’s actual Scrabble game ๐Ÿ˜‰

Supplies: Scrabble tiles to spell out the names, E-6000 adhesive and a frame. I ordered the tiles from eBay while I used is the small version of IKEA’s “Ribba”ย frame.

1. Start with trying out different ways to combine and connect the names. Hopefully you have names with at least one common letter. If not you will have to add short words like “and” or “love” or whatever you think fit. If you are anything like me you also want to make sure that the art is balanced.

2. Assemble “the art”,ย by adding glue to each piece and allow it to partially harden for a couple minutes before pressing them together. I started with “Albert”, then “Elise” and finally my name “Erlend”.

3. Frame the names! I used some double sided tape on the back to make sure the letters stay where I want them to stay – in the middle. And of course the tiles are pressed towards the glass from behind.

    I like your idea with the scrabble letters. I had a friend you loved to play scrabble. She was also very good at cross-stitching. One year for Christmas she made a cross-stitch picture that looked like a scrabble board with all the names of my parents family… me, my siblings and their spouses and our children at that time. It is a beautiful piece of art and my mom still has it hanging on a wall.

  4. Your DIY are so simple and gorgeous…
    I explore your blog since yesterday, and it gives me inspiration to crate my own site, I’m a crafter myself.
    I was looking for a present to friends who are waiting for a baby : I’ll make this frame !

    This looks so good!

    Can I ask how you achieved the grey background in the frame?

    • Erlend Erlend

      Thanks Lucy ๐Ÿ™‚ The grey background is actually the back of the IKEA Instruction paper that follows when you buy the frame.
