Scrabble Tile Pendant Necklace Tutorial

These scrabble tile necklaces are very easy to make. Just follow the directions below:

Materials needed-
  • Wooden scrabble tiles

  • Decorative paper

  • Craft knife

  • Mod Podge

  • Diamond glaze

  • Necklace bail and chain

  • Jewelry glue

  • Steps to make a scrabble tile pendant-

    1. Trace your tile on the decorative paper you wish to use. Carefully cut it out using the craft knife.

    2. Coat the tile with a thin layer of Mod Podge and attach the paper. Carefully trim any overhanging paper from around the tile. If you are using a Scrabble tile or other game piece, attach the paper to the plain side. Allow to dry.

    3. Coat the top of the paper with Mod Podge and allow to dry. This will seal the paper and keep it from discoloring when you add the glaze.

    4. Place a few drops of Diamond Glaze in the center of the tile on the paper. Spread it around to the edges, adding more Diamond Glaze a drop at a time until the front of the tile is covered. Allow to dry.

    5. Glue the necklace bail to the top center of the back of the tile pendant and string on a chain. Your tile necklace is ready to wear.

    These are so beautiful Shalini. I've always wondered how these were made to look so shiny. I see now that the secret is diamond glaze. Thank you very much for sharing this tutorial. You have a beautiful Etsy shop and the pendants are so pretty!

    Hi Shalini,

    I tried making these scrabble tile pendants today but had lot of bubbles on the surface. Can you suggest how to get rid of them? Thank you.

    @Julian, you need to use a toothpick when you put the diamond glaze on the tile. Just remove the bubbles and you will be fine.

    Lovely tutorial
    by: Mary

    Hi Shalini,

    I love the tutorial. I started making some of these but the glaze just runs over. Is it ok to have it run over?


    Sep 01, 2011
    by: Shalini


    Its ok to have some runover. But make sure to wipe the run with a tissue. Else the tile may get stuck to the surface
