When I saw this Challenge, I immediately knew that I wanted to use my FAVORITE board game, Scrabble. I love making new decorations for my apartment door... (its a very boring hallway and needs some crafty help!  Grin)

So I started out with a brand new board game... then I found I needed two!
Sorry - forgot to take the "in progress" pics...  I used two Scrabble Boards, two sets of tiles, two pencils and one tile rack... oh yeah, and LOTS of glue! This hangs with a simple piece of wire through the piece of board on the back.

Here are the pics I took of the completed house...

On my door...


Close up...


This is my first challenge and my first post!
Hope you like my Scrabble House! Let me know what you think!  Cheesy

I love it!  Scrabble is also my favorite board game, however I can rarely find anyone to play it with.

that's so cool! i love scrabble too, sometimes my brother plays against me and sometimes my mom does, my little sister tries, but she's one of those teens that think you are insanely against them and don't read so she doesn't know any good words. sorry, i'm rambling. that's a really awesome house, it would make a really cool birdhouse, but that would take alot more work and games!

That looks great!  However, it's too bad you had to destroy 2 scrabble games to make it  Cry  (can you tell I really like scrabble!)

Very cute, I like it!

I would have been tempted to spell out messages in the roof tiles, like "if you're selling stuff I don't want any" or "beware of my attack cat"... but I'm weird like that. Smiley
