This is the second one of these I have done. I did this one a bit differently that the first. The first one I used jump rings and screw eyes to attach the letters to one another but I didn't have enough screw eyes for this one and didn't have the $ or time to order them before I had to get this in the mail (it's for my pen pal) so with this one I drilled holes through the tiles and strung them on embroidery floss. Drilling holes completely through Scrabble tiles is HARD! Needless to say I ruined a couple letters and had to paint new ones but enough blabbing and onto the pictures!







Sorry the pictures aren't the greatest! I was in a hurry. I mod podged torn scrapbook paper onto the rack and painted the tiles. The colors were supposed to alternate but I screwed up my calculations somewhere but it still works Smiley On the rack is the last name and the names hanging down are of the Mom, Dad, two daughters, two dogs, and one cat Smiley
 
And since I used string I had the tie it and the top to attach the names to the rack so I tied little bows to hide that a bit Smiley
Thanks for looking! Smiley


OH and I almost forgot there are super strength magnets glued the the back and some jump rings attached the the top ...so you can either set it on a ledge, stick somewhere with the magnets, or hang it up with the jump rings.

OOH and there are beads in between each tile Smiley

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Where do you get Scrabble letters?  I wouldn't think you would have enough in one set to do many of these...

Oh I used to make Scrabble tile pendants but they become really common so I quit but I bought bags of them off of Ebay.
