Father's Day Scrabble Tile Keychain Gift

Welcome friends!  I am so thrilled to be participating in the Sharing is Caring Blog Hop for Father's Day.  I don't know about you, but I always need all of the inspiration I can get when it comes to gifts for the men in my life.  I can't wait to see all of the great ideas from the blog hop.    

This post is part of the Sharing is Caring Father's Day Blog Hop hosted by Life With Lovebugs and Powerful Mothering!

Today,  I am sharing a super easy and fun Scrabble tile keychain that I made for my daughter to give her dad.  You can have one of these made up in no time at all!

Scrabble Tile Keychain, Father's Day Gift, #scrabble tile, #gift idea, #keychain tutorial

For this project, you will need Scrabble tiles, glue (I used E-6000), thumb tack, very small eyelet, and a key ring.  I also used a small piece of wax paper when I glued the tiles together.  

How to make a hole in Scrabble tile

The first step is to make a hole in the tile so it would be easier to screw in the eyelet.  I used a thumbtack to make the hole.  This was the hardest part of the whole project.  Those tiles are very solid.

I glued the tiles together.  Once they were fairly firm, and I turned the pieces on their side so they wouldn't stick to the wax paper.  I allowed to dry overnight.

The last step was to add the key ring to the tiles.   This is the quick and easy version.  I really would have preferred to run a piece of wire through all of the tiles to make sure the tiles stay together.  I didn't have a drill bit that tiny.  Another easy way would be to drill tiny holes at the top and bottom of each piece and join them together with a tiny ring.  

You could also draw a heart on a blank tile and add I (heart) dad.  

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Be sure and check out all of the Father's Day ideas at the hop below.

This is super cute - I love it.
I might try to make it for other half (=husband)

In my country we don't celebrate Father's day, and a few years ago - Mother's Day became Family day (and I think it was a great idea)

What an adorable idea! I suspect my dad wouldn't want this from me now, but 30 years ago, he would have been all about it. :-)

To drill for the little eye-screws, I use a dremmel with the tiniest drill bit, just to make a pilot hole, the grip with long nose pliers to screw it in.

Sarah Throlson said...

What a cute idea! Another idea with a blank tile would be to put a "#" on it and make the keychain say "#1 DAD". That might look better going sideways instead of vertical though.
