Christmas will be here before you know it, so my family and I started to work on our holiday decorations and homemade Christmas gifts this week. We’ve got lots of fun ideas this year, so I’m hoping that we’ll be able to get to them all and share them with you! These quick and easy Scrabble tile Christmas ornaments have been on our to-do list for a couple of years now, so it was fun to finally make them!

Supplies Needed for Scrabble Tile Christmas Ornaments:

To begin, select the names, words, or phrases for your ornaments and find the matching Scrabble tiles. Use an X-Acto knife to cut strips of heavy chipboard the same width as the tiles. Alternately, large craft sticks also work well in lieu of chipboard strips.

Use a hot glue gun to attach the letter tiles to the backing (chipboard or craft stick).

Since I knew this project would require a significant amount of glue, I used the full-size CraftBond High Temp Glue Gun to help speed up the process. When you pair Elmer’s CraftBond Hot Glue Guns with Elmer’s CraftBond “Less Mess” Glue Sticks, they work in tandem to help eliminate all of those funky messy drips and spiderweb-like glue strings.

Allow the glue to cool and set.

Use the X-Acto knife to trim the chipboard to size. You can opt to trim the backing right next to the top/bottom of the tiles, or you can leave a bit of excess backing to serve as a base for embellishments.

If desired, add an eye hook to the top tile for hanging.

My kids loved making and decorating their own personalized name ornaments (especially since they have names that are never available on anything in the souvenir shops!)! This activity is a fun family project that everyone can enjoy making! Make sure to use adult assistance while handling the glue gun or swap it out for Elmer’s CraftBond Quick Dry glue instead.
