Scrabble Tile Christmas Tree

Since sharing my 31 Days of Christmas Ideas in October I had a little bit of Christmas burn out (posting everyday for 31 days is exhausting). I took a little time away from crafting and posting about Christmas, but now I’m back again. This time of year I couldn’t stay away too long. This is another one of those projects where I had everything in my crafting stash so I didn’t have to spend a penny. Those are my favorite kind of projects. You probably have everything you need to make this Scrabble Tile Christmas Tree too, if you don’t have any scrabble tiles you can order just the wood tiles (there’s a link in the supply list).

Supplies needed:

wood scrabble tiles
5x 7 frame
glue dots
scrapbook paper or wrapping paper
paint (optional)
small star

There’s only a few supplies so let’s get started.


Cut the scrapbook paper to fit the size of your frame. I think a 5×7 frame looks best for this project. I don’t know if you already do this but I always use glass cleaner on both sides of the glass so I know it’s starting out free of any finger prints or grime.


I wanted to add a little more color to the frame so I just painted a little strip of red around the outside of it. You could also use washi tape or even colored duct tape if you like.


Place the scrabble tiles on the glass how you want them. You can see on the T that I just placed a glue dot on the back of the tiles to hold them in place. I used a blank tile for the tree trunk.


Lastly, place the star on top of the tree. I used a silver star brad and just clipped the prongs off but you can also use a star button, small wood star, or small metallic star.


I used reversible scrapbook paper so I could just turn it around if I wanted to change the look. You could also place a few different patterns of scrapbook paper in the frame and change them whenever you like.


If you’re looking for a quick craft to add to your Christmas decor, this one is it.


And it’s easy to customize to fit your decor by simply changing the paper. My Christmas Home Tour will be coming up soon so come back often.

    Hi. Just to make sure because it’s hard to tell in the picture, you glue the letters to the outside of the glass, but the paper is underneath the glass. Is that correct?
