DIY: Scrabble Coasters

DIY Scrabble Coaster

Now that I’ve had a little bit of free time, I’m finally getting around to some of the craft projects I’ve been wanting to do since this summer. Once I finished my finals I spent the morning crafting – and made these word-nerd coasters for our apartment.

What you’ll need:

  • Scrabble letters
  • Corkboard pieces
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Super glue

Honestly, the hardest part of this project was actually finding the Scrabble letters. After deciding that I wasn’t going to pay upwards of $20 for Scrabble letters on Ebay, I started scouring thrift stores and used book stores for old board games. Eventually I found an old Scrabble game at Half Price Books for $3.

As I played around with different ways to complete this craft, I found that five by four letter squares generally a good coaster size. I tried to hide at least a few words in my coaster design but don’t stress over finding the perfect letter combination – get creative!

I used super glue to connect the Scrabble letters not only to one another but also to the scrapbook paper backing, which I cut to be the same size as the square of Scrabble letters. After the glue dies, attach a circle of corkboard to scrapbook paper bottom, creating a non-slip base for your coasters.
