Anyone wanna play Scrabble?!

Here's a fun lil' D.I.Y.
Framed Scrabble Quotes.
It's a super easy, quick, cheap process...and oh so cute.

SO. 1st step
Find the saying or quote you wanna use.
I picked Home Sweet Home.
{Check your local thrift + antique stores for the letters.
Ebay also has loads & loads!
Or you may have some laying around the house...lucky you.}
Next I found a shadow box type of picture frame at Hobby Lobby
...for 4.99 in the unfinished wood isle they have. 
I picked a shadow box frame so there is room for the scrabble pieces, 
and this one is awesome because it's cheap & unfinished.
So you can spray paint or stain it. {or whatever else you have in mind}
I stained the frame really fast  
I planned on it being outside so I didn't spend too much time on it...
it's going to have a weathered look at some point anyway. 
Which I'm totally down with.

This shows the back of the frame and what the color was when I bought it. 
{Also, there's the item # if you wanna purchase one}
So stain..or paint however you'd like, 

and then hot glue your scrabble letters on...I made mine kinda messy.
You put the four slits on top of the glass...
which sets the main piece back for the shadow effect.
Pop on the back and TADA...your done! 
Decorate away...
It ended up by my front door, I love it.
Here are a few others I did awhile back...
{Left} One was for my sister, Carpe Diem {Seize The Day}
{Right} One is hanging on my wall...For Like Ever.
I found both floral paper in the scrapbooking section of Hobby Lobby

CUTE huh?
a $10 the most
CHEAP huh?
So get to crafting' and have

Toot a loo
