Recycled Scrabble Tile Magnets

Recycled Scrabble Tile Magnets

Do you like to play Scrabble? Do you have a game that is missing some letters? Recycle the ones you have into fun accessories for yourself and your fridge.

What you need

Scrabble tiles


Small round magnets (10 – 12 mm)

Photographs or any kind of image such as from magazines. The list of paper products that can be recycled for this project are endless


These also make great gifts since you can personalize the earrings or pendant by using the initials of the recipient or you can spell out their name or words with the magnets.

Part of the image will be covered by the magnet, so this step is just to make the back of your project look more finished and is optional.

5/8 inch square punch or scissors for punching or cutting the images. The tiles are 7/8 inch. Mat acrylic gel medium and a brush for gluing on images

1) If you would like to decorate the backs of your tiles, select your images and punch or cut them out so they are smaller than the tile.

2) Brush the underside of the image with gel medium, glue onto the BACK of your tile, then brush the top of the image and tile with more gel medium. Let dry for 15 minutes.

Brush glue onto the top of the image twice more, letting dry for 15 minutes between each time.

3) Glue your magnet in the center of the BACK of the tile, using E600 glue.

All done!
