I know you have all probably seen the popular scrabble tile necklaces out there. You might have even seen the scrabble tile ring that Fonda from Fireflies and Jellybeans did when she was a sweetie and blog swapped with me! Well, let's take that original scrabble tile necklace idea and expand on it! There are already a lot of great tutorials out there on how to cover and glaze the scrabble tile. Here is the link where Fonda did a tutorial on that.
Ok - now let's just take this idea a little further. The original idea was to cover the tile with pretty or fun paper, put a paper glaze on it, glue a bale to the back, add a chain, and poof - you have a stinkin cute necklace! So let's just see how we can change this up a bit:
Take 3 coordinating tiles that you have covered and glazed. Let's connect them together in different ways and see what we come up with:
Add bales (just don't bend the ones you use between the tiles) and connect with E6000 glue:
Or, let's add a rusty ole star and connect with E6000 glue:
Or, let's add a couple of fun scrapbooking paperclips and connect with, you guessed it, E6000 glue:
How about adding them to a barrette?
A little note on this glue:
It's the bomb for keeping things together but be careful with the tube. It's made out of metal and if you squeeze or twist it too much, it breaks and looks like this:
See, wasn't that easy? No rocket science here, just creating, tweaking and little gluing of the fingers!
