9 ways to re-use Scrabble tiles

I love searching for vintage toys and games in charity shops, especially when the pieces can be upcycled into something else. Scrabble and other letter games are brilliant for upcycling and I’ve made quite a lot with vintage Scrabble tiles. With the end of term fast approaching some of these items could easily be made as handmade thank you gifts for teachers too.

Here are 9 ways to re-use Scrabble tiles or things to make inspired by Scrabble tiles:

Personalised Scrabble wall art

Scrabble tile Father’s Day coaster

Scrabble tile badges

DIY Scrabble tile dishwasher magnet 

DIY magnetic Scrabble board

How to make Scrabble tile key rings

How to make Scrabble tile biscuits

Scrabble tile bathroom sign

Scrabble tile decorations

    These are such great ideas, but I can’t look at scrabble without thinking about the handmaid’s tale! lol!
