What to do with Old Scrabble Letters – Yard Sale Trash to a Handmade Treasure

art tables 039I bought an old Scrabble game at a yard sale.  Before I put it away I realized real quick what I wanted to do with the letters. Make personalized name thingys for Christmas presents. I got the wooden letter stands, cleaned off the dust, and stained them. After they had dried I hot glued the letters on. Simple easy and a really neat gift for friends and ex-wives and husband-in-laws. Merry Christmas, Y’all!art tables 038art tables 037art tables 039

    I go to estate sales every weekend and I always see Scrabble letters. The older ones are better, they seem to be kinda rounded. Love what you did.
