So, I saw this post on Pinterest and I thought it would be so fun and easy to make! (Especially for a Christmas gift if you have that family member that LOVES board games.)
So, All you need is:
- Scrabble game, for tiles
- Scissors or X-acto knife
- Mod Podge
- Cork sheet, if desired.
I started by opening up my Scrabble game and taking the pieces out, I organized them into words on my cork sheet (my coasters were 4x4, so I chose four 4 letter words for each coaster) and then divided them into coasters.
Then, I glued each tile to the cork (you can use the Mod Podge, or other crafting glue) and then cut each coaster out. After the coasters were apart, I covered each one with several layers or Mod Podge...
letting each layer dry completely in between.
In addition to the set of four coasters I made as a gift, I decided to make one for myself!
This one is True Blood / vampire themed. (Yes, I know I was missing a B...I had to improvise)
And I decided to get SUPER crafty and even make a holder for the coasters to go in!
I made this using the Scrabble game board and extra cork sheets for the sides!
And, there ya go! Fast, Easy, Crafty.
Also, with the left over Scrabble tiles I decided to make a quick Christmas tree ornament!
