Scrabble Art



Hello everyone. I wanted to share with you a
Christmas gift I made for my mother-in-law. She LOVES to play scrabble and she LOVES the beach. She and my father-in-law go 2-3 times a year.
I saw this idea on Pintrest and knew I had to try to make it. I saw one online that spells love you but the thing cost $60.00 Holy Smokes!
I bought a square shadow box frame at Joann for 50% off so $12.00. I wanted the mat professionally cut so it had the beveled edge on the inside. Joann was going to cost a minimum of $20.00... nope.. Joann recommended checking out Hobby Lobby because they do their own cuts there. Joann has their Atlanta store cut it then send mail it back.
Hobby Lobby cut it in just a couple of minutes and for only $6.00. Yippeee.. We had the scrabble pieces already, I had the mod podge and base cardboard so the project cost me $18.00 verses $60.00 online! AND the lady that cut the mat was inspired to make her own!
Hope you enjoyed. Thanks for stopping by!
Cheers!
