I originally started making these for Valentine’s Day, but things got so busy that week that I never got around to posting this. So, I decided to create something fun to wear on St. Patrick’s Day.
These are very simple to make. And you can print these initials I designed and use whatever one you’d like.
What you need:
~Free ‘Initials’ printable (below)
~Glossy Accents/Diamond Glaze (found at craft stores)
~Glitter Glue (optional)
~Scrabble Tiles (can buy in bulk at craft stores)
~E-6000 Glue or Superglue
~Glue Tape Runner or Tacky Glue
~Silver Bail (found in the jewelry section at craft stores)
How to make:
1. Download and print the free printable initials below. Cut out the initials you would like to use.
2. Take a scrabble tile and line it up with the initial. You will need to cut it a bit to match it completely to the scrabble tile as they are all slightly different sizes.
3. Glue the paper onto the tile with a glue runner or tacky glue. Press it down hard so that it sticks on well.
4. If you’d like to add some glitter at this point, dab some glitter glue to embellish the shamrock or hearts.
5. Once the glitter is dry then you could Mod Podge over the paper to seal it. (I actually skipped this step.)
6. When everything is completely dry then take your glossy accents (or Diamond Glaze) and follow the directions on the bottle by putting a layer on the tile. It should not run over the edges even thought it seems like it might.
7. Once it’s dried completely add the silver bail to the back. Put it on a chain for your kiddos to wear on St. Patty’s Day or whenever they’d like!

This is sized to be printed on 8.5 x11 inch paper.
For best results we recommend using a quality matte paper and printing it on an ink jet printer.
Hey guys! This is Jess! When I saw Jenny’s adorable Scrabble Tile Necklaces, I got really excited because I have done these before in the past and REALLY LOVE this craft! It is super easy and really cute. When I made my first one, it was at MOPS and the necklace I made was for my daughter Kaylee, she was 4 at the time. She STILL has it and treasures it (She is only 5 now, it’s not like YEARS have passed in between but for a 4 year old to hold onto something, especially my daughter who loses EVERYTHING, it is surprising that this necklace is still being worn and in its original form!). So I thought I would share it with you. And the great thing is, you can not only use Jenny’s stinkin’ ADORABLE initials that she provided but you can also use photos (granted they would have to be small, like the little proof print sheets you get at Costco or Shutterfly when you order your prints) or just use scrapbook paper and cut out a design you like! This is Kaylee’s Necklace below, I did the same steps as Jenny, just used a scrap of scrapbook paper for the butterfly and cut it to size.
