This next gift idea is one I whipped up for a friend…so don’t tell her I made it.
It’ll be a secret.
I think she reads my blog at least semi-often, so I know she’s going to see it soon enough.
Oh well. We were never too good at surprising one another anyhow.
Take a peek. It’s all the names in her family spelled out in scrabble tiles.
Each name intersects with at least one other. I started with the parents, then did the oldest child, and built from there. The letter tiles I purchased off of Amazon and the burlap board I found at Wal Mart (or you can cover a plain canvas with burlap). Wal Mart had many sizes and shapes, and I believe this one is 10″ by 10″. Each letter is just hot glued onto the burlap.
One corner of the board looked a little empty, so I placed their last name in that spot by itself.
All in all, I think this is a neat family gift that is very personalized.
I wouldn’t mind making one for my own family, so I may be doing one in the coming days for us. We’re kind of nerdy, so the Scrabble tiles suit us pretty well:)
