Making Scrabble tile coasters is easy! You can do this project in just a few minutes – it makes a great gift idea or budget home decor.
There's a supply I keep on hand in one of the drawers of the kitchen – a product that can create masterpieces in minutes, in addition to fixing all of the little household issues that come up.
It's called Krazy Glue, and I'm sure you've heard of it! I had some Scrabble tiles left over from another craft project, and I decided to use them to make some unique coasters. So that's what I did.
Here's how I made these scrabble tile coasters. You won't believe how easy this project is – it just took a few minutes.
DIY Scrabble Coasters
Gather These Supplies
- Krazy Glue
- A cork tile big enough to make 4 coasters
- Scrabble tiles – you can get them from eBay or get faux ones from the craft store
- X-Acto knife
- Craft mat
Here are the two key supplies for this project. Krazy Glue has a craft glue and craft gel formula, which is just as strong as the household stuff. It also comes in a new 20g gel formula that you can use for larger projects.
You'll need to lay out the cork tile on your surface, and grab your scrabble tiles. Decide if you want to spell words or just make it random, and begin laying them out in 4 x 4 patterns.
Start gluing the scrabble tiles to the cork. There's a reason that the motto for Krazy Glue is “Krazy strong, Krazy fast”. It completes a craft faster than it takes to set and heat up a glue gun properly (and you won't burn yourself!).
I love the gel especially because there's no mess, and it fill in gaps when bonding mismatched surfaces.
Once the Krazy Glue is dry (which happens quickly), you can trim around the edges of your scrabble tiles with the X-Acto. Repeat for the three other coasters and that's it!
I love my new scrabble tile coasters! And just so you know, Krazy Glue works on porcelain, pottery, plastic, rubber, metal and glass, or vinyl. I'll be keeping it around for my next awesome craft project for sure.
