Scrabble Tile Decor

I randomly purchased a hand-blown glass Chicken at a Bizarre last weekend ... I know, right!? Let me tell you ... I don't "do" knick-knacks or random decorative purchases. So you can imagine when I walked into the house and showed my hubby our new "chicken" he seriously thought it was some kind of joke ... a chicken? I don't know, maybe it was the color ... but this little guy stole my heart. It was the fastest and most spontaneous purchase I may have ever made!

Moving along ... I needed to find a home for "Peep". I thought on top of our old wine barrel would be a great place. As I struggled to decorate this little corner, my kiddo pulled out the Scrabble box ... the inspiration was right there in his sticky little hands! I grabbed a really cool empty wine bottle that I had kept from over a year ago, pulled out a few tiles, dumped the rest in the bottle and voila! Then I decided it needed a little more color. I grabbed a bottle of craft paint, applied a thin layer and then ... VOILA! I love how something so incredibly simple can really make an impact. P.S.... Do you like the little love note to my hubby I snuck in there

A few strokes of craft paint and 5-minutes later we were done ...

Scrabble Tile Letters with a Robins Egg Blue Tile Holder

"U R MY FAVORITE" ... a little love note to the hubby ... think he'll notice? The extra letter tiles are in the old wine bottle that is also used as a bookend for our Wine Journal. Maybe the hubby will spell out a new note occasionally ... hint, hint.

... let's not forget the inspiration behind it all. A chicken named Peep.


  1. Haha, I think the chicken is way cute! And I'm not a knick knack kind of person either :) Cute scrabble decor too, did he notice?

  2. Cute!! I love the chicken and have always loved scrabble decor. Liked your sweet note to your hubby too! Thanks for linking up your project.

  3. love scrabble tiles!! I found some really old/worn ones on ebay, and I love seeing the messages I've made for myself around the house :) love the wine bottle pic too btw...

  4. I really like the idea with the scrabble decor.

  5. Great ideas. I love Scrabble, but no one will play with me in my house. I guess I should sacrifice those tiles to my decor.


  6. Saw you at Serenity Now's linky party.

    Love the shade of blue you chose to paint the tile-holder with.

    And the jar of extra letters really looks neat. Now I need to find a place in my house to do this with! :-)

  7. It looks lovely! And I love the blue.
