A lot of people use these letters for arts and crafts. Some people use scrabble letters for the wall in a part of their room. This is a great teacher appreciation gift idea, name sign, or door sign using scrabble letters.
You don’t need to be a professional DIY’er to do this. I am no artist. But we have already done signs using rulers, candy themed items, and a sign with wood letters and macron erasers. They all turned out super cute and the teachers were thrilled.

Directions for DIY Craft
I stained the wood just to give it some texture. This is optional. I also used white spray paint to spray the wood plaque and let it dry for a few hours. We live in Arizona so it dries fast.

Use Gorilla Wood Glue to stick the rulers on the sign, the letters and the stencil.
You can tape the leopard stencil on the wood to paint the print.
I used scrabble letters to spell the name.
These note pals sticky tabs – colorful pencils are adorable!
I glued this tiger stencil also with the wood glue.
I got the Self Adhesive Velcro Dots to make a detachable pen and notes.
