I am not a board game person. I have a bunch lying around, scrabble being one of them, and we rarely ever play it. Today, I am showing you to up-cycle Scrabble Tiles into easy coasters with some Krazy Glue in under half an hour. These easy coasters make for a wonderful holiday gift that you can create in a budget! I am going to be making some of these easy DIY Scrabble Tile Coasters as Teacher’s gifts for Liyana.
If you like the idea, but don’t want to sacrifice your Scrabble tiles, don’t worry – you can purchase an inexpensive pack of Scrabble tiles on amazon to make these easy DIY coasters. I promise you, you can whip these Easy DIY Scrabble Tile Coasters in no time and maybe a few batches in babies nap time!
How to make Easy DIY Scrabble Tile Coasters
You will need the following supplies. I have provided affiliate links for all.
We are going to start off by first making our words and making sure they fit on the cork sheet coasters.
I went with a 4 by 4 grid, and trimmed off the edges with a scissors. Once you have your words, you can start by CAREFULLY applying the Krazy Glue All Purpose Precision Tip to the back of each scrabble tile (I use the blank side of some tiles, so applied to the letter part on some tiles).
Please read the complete instructions on the pack of Krazy Glue All Purpose Precision Tip to ensure safe application. Once I applied the Krazy Glue, I stuck on the tiles to the cork coaster, and set something heavy on top for a few minutes. The bonding time for Krazy Glue is very fast (~30 seconds), so I did not need to hold the tiles for very long.
Pro tip: Once you have placed your first tile on the edge, use the Precision Tip to apply the Krazy Glue to the sides of the tile to create a seamless look. I did not do this at first, and had to go back in and fill in the gaps between the tiles.
The best part about these Easy DIY Scrabble Tile Coasters is that they are completely customizable and you can have fun with them!
I went with drink names that we love having, and even added a fun one for Doodh Patti (Pakistani Style Chai).
I think these Easy DIY Scrabble Tile Coasters make for perfect gifts for any occasion, and are a great budget friendly option for the upcoming holiday season. If you are looking for more budget friendly gift options, I have some great ones like DIY candles with thrifted finds, an easy DIY sugar scrub everyone is bound to love, and even a free printable you can frame for a beautiful holiday gift.
There you have it my friends: a super easy DIY perfect for the holidays coming up!
