Alphabet tiles make for fabulous holiday decorations and we decided try one out. We settled on ‘Oh Holy Night’ as the phrase for our letter tile plaque as spaces out nicely into a tree shape. Since we’re right in the middle of the holiday season, this DIY could make a wonderful creative, low cost and stylish gift for friends or family. We found our Christmas themed alphabet tiles at the craft store. But Scrabble game tiles will work just as well, try using a blank tile for the trees ‘trunk’.

What You’ll Need:
- Wood plank
- Scrapbook paper
- A small Christmas star
- Wood alphabet tiles
- Paint brushes
- Foam brush
- Mod Podge
- Gold Paint
How to make your own Letter Tile Plaque:
Use the paintbrush to paint the edge of the plaque that will not be covered by the scrapbook paper in the gold paint and then let dry.
Cover the front of the plank with the Mod Podge, this will allow the scrapbook paper to stick to the plaque. Don’t use too much, thin, even coverage is best.
Place the scrapbook paper onto the plank and then press the paper down firmly, let dry. Cover the top of the paper with another layer of Mod Podge.
Glue the star to the top of the plaque and the alphabet tiles underneath in the four lines to spell ‘Oh Holy Night’. The last line is a single tile for the tree ‘trunk’. Be sure to use a ruler to space out the letters, we left ½” between letters.
We hope you love this elegant letter tile plaque, happy crafting!
