Scrabble Merry Christmas Cross
Use Scrabble tiles to spell Merry Christmas in a cross shape. Create a beautiful ornament or wall hanging that celebrates the reason for the season!
From the Designer: "Recently, I was searching for religious Christmas crafts and came across an image of a beautiful unfinished laser-cut cross. I knew right away that it wasn't a tutorial, but I followed the link anyway. I was thinking about how I would paint or decorate it, when I was struck with an idea. As you know, I am obsessed with Scrabble. I could use Scrabble tiles to make a cross like this!"

- Scrabble tiles (MERRY CHRISTMAS minus one R)
- Sturdy chipboard
- Strong double-sided tape
- Ribbon or cording
The first thing I did was to line up the word CHRISTMAS and cut a strip of chipboard just a hair shorter and narrower than the word.
I did the same for MERRY, borrowing the shared R from CHRISTMAS.
I covered the two pieces of cardstock with double-sided tape.
I peeled back the liner and started applying the letters. It bothered me a bit that the M was printed so far to the left. I checked through all my M's and they're all like that. Interesting!
Next, I peeled off the liner on the MERRY strip of cardstock, applied the M and E, then stuck it to the CHRISTMAS piece.
I attached the final two letters, then added gold cording on the back. Here's my completed cross:
