Scrabble Tile Spring Sign

Good morning! We are having some beautiful weather today, at least until the next rain storm comes in. But that’s okay, we need it! Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? I  know my preschoolers are very excited. We hope to be able to have some fun tomorrow at school.

This weather feels like spring, so I thought I would start a spring project. I still have  quite a few pieces of this painted wood and I found some scrabble-like letters in my scrapbooking stash, so I decided to put them together. I came up with some spring-like words and tried to keep them about the same length, but some are longer than others. I started by laying them out on the board.

I figured out I would need 3 inches between the bottom of one line of letters and the top of the next. I used a ruler and drew lines across so I would know where to line up the letters.

I added a line of glue just below the pencil line and started gluing on letters, making sure they were centered. I didn’t measure for the center, I just eyeballed it, but you can certainly do that.

total aside: I did change the spelling of blossoms!

I had some blank spots where I had to fill in, so I found some cute spring flowers from my scrapbooking stash too and after playing with it for a bit, found the right combinations. I ended up using only the yellow and pink.

I placed it on my mantle with a cute little bird who is ready for spring too!

I made the spring banner a couple of years ago and thought is was the perfect touch across the window.

    That’s really pretty. i’ve made a few things with old scrabble tiles but they are difficult to get hold of sometimes and it can be hard to make the words you want with limited tiles! I love these scrap book tiles you’ve found.

    That’s a really cute idea but I must admit I’m a little jealous right now. We can feel Autumn knocking at our door here in South Africa and Spring has always been my favorite time of the year. Enjoy it
