Well I was cleaning out my closet the other day and came across a huge stack of old Nintendo Power and GamePro Magazines. I'd been wanting to try Scrabble Tile pendants for a long time, so with a new abundance of videogames screenshots and art, I stopped by my local Goodwill and luckily picked up the last Scrabble set (my luck in getting said set was probably due to the fact that it only had 84 tiles 0_o). A couple hours later and these are what I came up with!










































I'll upload the rest later, my internet is painfully slow right now -_-;
Here's the rest ^_^







































I originally planned to just make a couple, but it was so much fun I just got carried away and made them all! Now I have to search other Goodwills to find more sets ^_^ Most of these ended up going to friends as random surprise no special occasion gifts (the best kind in my opinion). And I notice now that my two favourites I forgot to scan ^^; (since I was wearing them at the time) but I also have an awesome Zell from Final Fantasy VIII and Vamp from Metal Gear Solid 2 <3
Thanks for taking a look at my stuff! And if anyone has any suggestions on what other fun things I can do with the rest of the magazines, please let me know ^_^

Nice job. Good use for your old magazines.

I've been looking through my local thrift stores and haven't been able to find any Scrabble games. I'm about ready to buy a new one just for the tiles. What size bails did you use?

I won't go into a long winded explanation (if you google "Scrabble Tile Pendant Tutorial" you'll find lots of great ones). But its basically just cutting out and image (from a magazine or something you printed, or anywhere) gluing it to the scrabble tile (I used Modgepodge) using a glaze on top of the image (I used Diamond glaze) and then once everything's dry, attaching a bail on the back ( I used annraku bails). Really simple and really fun!

Nice job. Good use for your old magazines.

I've been looking through my local thrift stores and haven't been able to find any Scrabble games. I'm about ready to buy a new one just for the tiles. What size bails did you use?
Before you buy a new set see if you can find stores that sell just the replacement tiles. Usually the tiles alone will cost you about $8, instead of $15-20 for a new game. Also I'm not sure what size the bails are exactly (I got them at a local bead store, the label didn't say much) but they are pretty large (its almost the length of the scrabble tile ^^; ) It's the only size my store carries, but I'm thinking of buying some online to get a smaller size.

REALLY like these!! How did you attaching the bales? Glue?
I used E600 (it an industrial strength adhesive, alot of craft stores carry it). I highly suggest using E600, I tried using Crazy Glue on the first few I made, and it didn't stick at all (I dropped one and the bail came clean off). The only problem with E600 is that the larger tubes don't have a precision nozzle, but I just use a bamboo skewer to spread the glue, it works great!
