How To: Scrabble Tile Coaster

Posted by Kaitlin on 10/22/2012 to Salvaged
Alphabet tile coasters are one of the many cool things you can make with wooden alphabet tiles. It is a very simple project. Customizable, creative and great for gifting!



ALPHABET TILE COASTER SUPPLIES:




Here's what you'll need to gather:


Step One:


First choose five, 5 letter words you would like your coaster to display. I'm using wedding themed words in this tutorial. BRIDE, PEACE, YOUME, GROOM, HAPPY




Step Two:


Use E6000 to glue your letters together line by line.








Step Three:


Cut your corkboard into a 3 5/8" x 3 5/8" square. The total size of the coaster is 3 7/8" x 3 7/8" but I like to leave a little bit of room at the edges as you'll see in the photos. (3 1/2" x 3 1/2" also works well, whatever you prefer)






FINISHED!


Your finished coaster will look something like this!




A pretty package!


Make a set of coasters and tie them with a pretty ribbon. They're so much fun to personalize for the one you love (or even just like :0) and give them away.




One more thing...


You can also use Wooden Letterpress Alphabet Tiles to make an irregular shaped coaster. It's really fun and a great twist on the traditional scrabble tile coaster look.




Happy coaster making!!
