A while back one of my friends gave me a huge bag of extra scrabble tiles.  Ever since, I’ve been mulling over what to do with them.  One of my favorite ideas that I have come across so far is turning them into coasters, like Krysta from Domestic for Dummies did after she saw a set for sale for $26. If you happen to have tiles laying around anyway, you can whip up your own for a heck of a lot cheaper! Use drink-related words to up the clever quotient, or arrange the letters any other way you like. If you don’t have the right letters to make enough words for a full set of coasters, even random letters will work! [how to make Scrabble tile coasters]

Project estimate:

  • Scrabble tiles, on hand or about $5
  • Cork tile, $1 and up
  • Glue, on hand
  • Spray enamel, on hand or $1 and up

Total: $1 and up
