Paint Stick Scrabble Ornaments

Quite the title for a post, huh?

Actually a quick craft made out of paint sticks and scrabble tiles.

The paint stores are very generous with their free paint sticks, so I usually have a few lying around. 
  I needed some filler ornaments for a small tree in our entry, and came up with the idea
 of painting paint sticks and attaching scrabble tiles with various holiday words.

You can use any paint for these, but I happen to have some extra chalk board spray paint so I went with that which gives the "ornaments" a whole other dimension for use.  
You could actually just write words on the paint sticks.

I used a saw to trim the sticks which required a little sanding on the 
edges, giving the stick a more weathered look.

The scrabble tiles are attached with this photo tape. 

 It comes off very easily if you decide to go with the chalk writing idea.

I love a simple craft.  

Have you been crafting some of your holiday decor this season?
