How to Make Scrabble Tile Magnets

How to make scrabble tile magnets for your fridge!Beyond the tiles (which you can probably buy super cheap at a tile shop), all you need are magnets, a permanent marker (or porcelain marker if your tiles are porcelain) and a hot glue gun. Now don’t blink, you may miss the whole tutorial.

Let that marker dry and hot glue ONE magnet to the back of each square. Literally, the hardest part of this entire project was trying to break the magnets a part from one another. Holy moley, you should have seen us. #circusact

Show off your Scrabble Tile Magnets on your Fridge

Plus, we think these letters could be a fun way to get the kids involved, especially if they are at the age of starting to read or being excited about their upcoming spelling test.

And thanks to these adorable magnets, we are able to display some of our fun pictures right on the refrigerator! These magnets not only provide entertainment, competition, and spelling practice, but they can also help display some of the exciting snail mail you receive throughout the week!IMG_0894

These old-fashioned cameras definitely don’t flatter our photography like our friend Instagram does. Only one chance to capture the perfect shot?! Instagram spoils us.  But it was fun change it up with some old school photography for a day!
