Giant scrabble tile wall art

These are big scrabble tiles made to be hung on the wall. Cherry wood, vinyl letters. And yes scrabble geeks I put the wrong number on the L and V. But too bad, because let me tell you when those vinyl adhesive letters touch wood it’s over. So there you have it. Oops. :)

Thanks Dennis! Love is spelled right, but L should be number 1 and V should be number 4. :)

VERY VERY COOL, WHERE DID YOU FIND THE LETTERS?

Very nice – I think the 4 on the L is perfect – as someone else said—4 love. Pretty well said even if it were unintentional. :-)

in scrabble the L is worth 2, and the V is worth 5

of course it doesnt matter :) just giving you a hard time! I really like this a lot! very creative idea, I’ve never seen anything like it before – thanks for sharing with us!

Well dak- you have proven my point about scrabble geeks. They do know their letters/point values. LOL

Rob: As for the letters/numbers they are vinyl stickers- I just bought the letters I needed from a vendor on etsy. They weren’t cheap though- $2.00 each letter $2.00 each number… and then I screwed it up anyway. Ho hum. If any of you have access to one of those machines called a circuit cutter they tell me that they cut vinyl letters and it’s pretty cheap to use (if you already bought the machine).

Christine- You could do these for the wedding daughter. You can do their names and whatever and use it as a big backdrop or something? Then they can take the letters home and hang them in their own damn house. LOL Or you can make some, sell them and pay for the wedding. hehe… Just get a circuit cutter- some of the newer machines cut 12 inch vinyl now they tell me- though I have never used one. I would like one though. I think….

That is a great idea.
The mis-numbering just kind of adds to the fun.

I have no idea what scrabble number is assigned to the letter ‘V’, but it HAS TO BE HIGHER than a 1 !

These look super cool by the way—lots of style points for your room.
I could see these hanging in my living room inside a thin-rimmed dark frame.

It looks super easy, but, I suspect it was harder than it looks.

Nice job!
