In a previous post I turned some old wooden blocks into giant scrabble tiles. My obsession didn't end there so I created my own. I'm thinking these will make great inexpensive Christmas gifts too.

I cut my 4 inch wood pieces and sanded them down rounding the corners a bit.

You could use a 2x4 if you want something that would stand up better on a shelf. Since I was hanging mine on the wall I wanted something less chunky.

I gave my blocks a quick coat of stain

Like my previous scrabble tile post I printed my vinyl letters and numbers on my Cricut and Sure Cuts Alot software using the font KALINGA for the letters and ARIEL for the numbers.

I used these handy little nails to hang my tiles on the wall. You just hammer the pointy end into your tile half way then push the other end into your wall.

Not sure what numbers go with what letters according to the real scrabble tiles?? Here ya go...


  1. what a fun blog! I am so glad I found you and i cant wait to read more. :) If you get a second, check out my blog! Have a magical day!

  3. Hi there, I am making Christmas gifts using 2.5 x 2.5 wood tiles I had our hardware store cut. I am interested in a Cricut but not sure how to get started. I have been painting the letters & numbers on the wood by hand. How do you go about getting vinyl to put on the wood? Is that something that you can purchase at the store along side the Cricut?

  4. Amazing design!! Good idea. Its perfect gift for Christmas. I love your scrabble idea.
