How to Make a Scrabble Tile Christmas Ornament
- Begin the process by arranging the letters into the word of your choice. Some ideas other than Peace are Merry, Blessings, Joy, Snow, Santa, Family, etc. Once you've chosen your word, add a small dab of hot glue to the sides of each of the letters and press them together to create the word.
- Take the plastic snowflake. Add a strip of hot glue behind the word and press it to the top of the snowflake. Hold in place until the glue begins to cool and the snowflake is secure.
- Finish your Scrabble Tile Christmas Ornament by adding some ribbon or pipe cleaner for hanging on your Christmas tree. Just tie or twist and add some hot glue, then press it to the back of the snowflake. Your Scrabble Tile Christmas Ornament is now ready to be displayed on your family's Christmas tree.
