Recycled Decorating

I recently got a few scrabble games at a yard sale for my newest Etsy item but I didn’t want to just throw out the game boards and letter holder things so I searched online for some ideas for how to use them.

For the game board you can glue pictures of family members then glue their names on with scrabble tiles. Or you can glue the letter holder things onto the game board and use it like a picture ledge.

Here’s what I chose to do with some of the letters and the holder thing…


I just glued the letters on and I’m going to give it a coat of Mod Podge. I made two other ones with my kids names on them. They can just sit on any shelf for a little decoration. 


  1. I'm a lurker and I love your blog! I also love Scrabble and put an old set of tiles in an old candy jar along side a Scrabble tile holder. Each of us in our little family take turns writing messages. Everything from Happy Easter to He is Risen to Summer Rocks to Meatballs (?) has been known to show up on it. When we have guests I move it to the guest room to leave a welcome message. Just thought I would share another use for your tiles! :)

  2. That's so cute! You have so many great ideas here, I just love the faux locker baskets!

  3. I just saw this in an antique/junque shop this weekend - too cute - I am stealing your idea!

  4. Hi,
    I found your blog from Reinvented. I learned a lot from reading it. Thanks.
