Wednesdays the Youth (teens) in my church get together to do activities. I am one of the leaders over the 12 and 13 year old girls (beehives). Last night we made scrabble tile necklaces with the 2011 theme on it.
The girls really had a fun time making them! I got the free file from Sugardoodle.net. Angela Casperson was kind enough to do the foot work and share it with the rest of us :-)
Here is how we made our Necklaces.
If you are new to the whole scrabble necklace thing here is a link to a great tutorial on to how to make them.
I was out of the silver bails that I normally glue to the back so I drilled holes through our tiles with a small hand drill I have and then we pulled the cording through and added a decorative bead (like I do with washer necklaces). Doing it this way these necklaces look really cute as choker.
I also made a bead clasp in the back. To do this you tie a bead to one end of the cording and then make a small loop on the other end of the cording.
Then you just put the loop over the bead and now you have a cute matching clasp for your necklace!
Here is the one my 12 year old daughter made. So simple,but so cute!
