DIY Burlap Scrabble Thanksgiving Wreath

How to Make a DIY Burlap Scrabble Tile Fall Wreath. LivingLocurto.com

I love making DIY Holiday wreaths, so I’m happy to have one of my favorite bloggers guest posting today. When I asked Jen from Tatertots and Jello to do a guest post for Living Locurto, I was very excited to see she used her famous burlap abilities here. YAY! I know you will love her, so take it away Jen…   How to Make a DIY Burlap Scrabble Tile Fall Wreath. LivingLocurto.com Hi! I’m Jen from Tatertots and Jello. I am so excited to be here on Amy’s blog!! I am a big fan of Amy’s printables and I Heart Faces. Today, I’m excited to show you a Thanksgiving Scrabble Wreath I put together the other day while my daughter was at Kindergarten.

Here’s what you need:

  • A wreath form
  • Burlap — a 36″ square piece should do
  • A few fabric scraps
  • Some Scrabble tiles**
  • Hot glue and gun
  • Two types of coordinating ribbon

**FUN TIP — if you want to make one of these and don’t want to destroy your Scrabble game, you can buy “lots” of Scrabble pieces on ebay or etsy. Or, if you contact Hasbro, you can order a complete replacement set of tiles. It was around $6 for 100 pieces last year.

Here’s what you do:

1. Wrap the wreath with burlap.

Cut two pieces of burlap about 4 inches in width by 36 inches in length. Or, if you have a long piece of burlap you can use a 72 inch strip. Hot glue one end of the strip to the back of the wreath. Then wrap the burlap around your wreath. My wreath form was 12 inches wide, so if you are using a bigger form, you will need a longer piece of burlap. Once the form is wrapped in burlap, set it aside.

2. Make rolled burlap flowers.

I made 18 flowers in different sizes. For each flower, you will need a strip of material about 1 inch in width by either 32 inches, 24 inches or 18 inches, depending on how wide you want the flower to be.

Fold the material in half width-wise and then roll it tightly about 8 times. Then add a dab of hot glue and twist the material around the rolled center, adding glue as you roll. The flower will continue to get bigger until you reach the end of the material. Then add some hot glue to the back and glue down the end of the material underneath the flower.

For more in-depth instruction, check out my Rolled Flower Tutorial.

3. Glue Scrabble Tiles to Paper.

Now that you have the flowers made, lay out the scrabble pieces to whatever saying you want to display on your wreath. Then hot glue the tiles onto a piece of paper. Then cut out the tiles, trimming very close to the edges so no paper is showing.

4. Hot glue the Scrabble tiles to the wreath.

5. Hot glue the flowers to the wreath.

Now lay out the rolled flowers on the wreath. Once you are happy with the placement. Hot glue the flowers to the burlap wreath.

6. Cut the two coordinating ribbon for the top of the wreath.

Make a loop of ribbon for the top of the wreath to hang on the door or wall. Then cut another length of the two ribbon and make a bow. Attach the bow at the top of the wreath to the loop.

7. Hang up and enjoy your new wreath!

  14. Jen always makes the best wreaths! And I love the many way she uses burlap too! The Scrabble tiles are great!

  15. Jen is my HERO! I am loving the burlap on burlap flowers! That is really genius! And the scrabble tiles are wonderful too. Although, I’m kinda a Scrabble nerd. I might be morally opposed to giving up some of my tiles. Particularly that “K”. It’s a 5 pointer!

    Love this Jen! And love you too!
