Instructions:

  1. planning Planning the layout First things first, decide what you want to spell out with the scrabble letters, I chose to do family, then the names of my family, Lee, Louise, Reece and Owen. On your squared paper start by writing them out and playing about with the design layout, try to make sure you don’t have any letters which overlap and cause you to spell out an unwanted word, this is where i find the squared paper comes on handy to do this as you can get correct spacing of the letters. Try it a couple of different ways until you’re happy with how it will look.
  2. step 2Cut out your background cardstock/wallpaper. (I chose the wallpaper from the room which I intended to hang the frame in and cut it to size to fit in my frame. Now look out the letters you will need and arrange them how you’ve written it out and make sure you’re happy with the layout. Lay your frame on top to make sure you’ve got it centred in the frame.
  3. step 3Choose your centred word, in my case I started with the word ‘family’, moved the other words out of the way and I used a ruler to line up the letters. Keeping the ruler in place, take 1 letter at a time and start to hot glue the letters in place. When that word is finished, move the ruler to line up your next word in place. Continue this process until all your words are glued down in place.
  4. step 4When all your words are in place, simply pop into the frame and admire your work. I’ve made a few of these frames for various family members and they all love them. I did one for my dad’s 60th birthday in January from the grandchildren and added a few personal items to the frame as well.
