We usually clean up in a good game of Scrabble, so we appreciated these DIY projects using the game's board, tiles and racks. The diversity of available materials, vintage nostalgia and perennial popularity of type is fertile ground for the crafty among us.

This Scrabble board picture frame (via Craft:) uses the Scrabble grid as a cutout guide to make a multi-picture frame.

The variations in tone of the hand-beveled Scrabble tiles on this keyboard (via Make:) make it look worn-in, in a good way.

No cutting or hand-beveling is required for this simple idea: old Scrabble boards as place mats, and the tiles and racks as place cards.

Also from Craft:, cute scrabble tile coasters with topical words.
