With the recent success of Wordle and the resurgence of Book Clubs nationwide, I know there are some fellow Mom Bookworms out there! As a lifelong lover of all things literature, language, and games, I wanted to share a super easy and thoughtful Mother’s Day craft that the Mother Figure in your life will actually love. And extra points if she’s a bookworm! Ian and I played Scrabble a lot at the beginning of our relationship, and the pieces carry so much nostalgia for me. I thought it would be cool to show you guys how to make some art that is really simple but reflects your special Mom connections beautifully. Welcome to my DIY Scrabble Art For Mom!
This little craft is really beautiful and super inexpensive, too. You can even adjust the background color, and frame color depending on the tastes of your recipient. I made one to show you guys for myself, so I chose really neutral colors that I can have displayed year-round. It was so fun to decide how I wanted the letters to go, and if I wanted to spell out the kids’ names, nicknames, and which version of Mom I wanted to use. If you’re making it for your own Mom, another great idea is to do this with attributes you love about your Mom coming off of “Mom”, “Mother” or “Mommy”. It goes without saying, but this craft can be used for Father’s Day too!
I hope you guys enjoy this, and it gives you a simple but meaningful way to make a gift this year. Let me know how you like it!
First, you should decide on how you would like to address your recipient. Once you have decided on that, you will have a better understanding of which letters you can play off of. My biggest piece of advice is to map out your plan on a table before hot gluing it together on the mat that comes with the shadow box as well as make note of the measurements of your mat so that you know how long you can make each word. Lastly, have fun with it!
