A DIY Personalized Teacher Nameplate Gift is a unique way to show your teacher you are thankful for him or her. As a writer, it’s not shocking that I love Scrabble crafts.
Many years ago, I bought Scrabble for my brother hoping he would join in on my Scrabble loving passion only to find it sitting in a garage years later.
I did what any crafter would do, I took it back and now use the tiles for crafting. (I play with my own Scrabble game)
Let’s get back to why this teacher gift is so fun to make. It’s simple, unique and will definitely impress any teacher who has a love for English and learning. The only drawback to this idea is that it wouldn’t work out for a teacher that has a long last name.
How to make a DIY Personalized Teacher Nameplate Gift
- Hot Glue Gun
- Scrabble Tiles to spell out the teacher’s name – I had an extra game that wasn’t being used, so I used the tiles for crafts, but you could look into resale shops for good deals or buy the tiles only here.
- Scrabble Letter Holder
- Sharpened pencil
Find the tiles for your teacher’s name and set aside.
Using a glue gun, secure the teacher’s name on the Scrabble letter holder. Let it dry.
Glue the pencil on the bottom of the letter holder.
Feel free to add wooden apples, worms, or book artwork to the nameplate. You can find these at local craft stores. I went for a simple look.
Place the personalized teacher nameplate in a cute clear gift bag along with candy or other fun supplies. I am not sure who enjoyed this gift more: myself for making it, my daughter for giving it to Mrs. Harmon, or Mrs. Harmon herself. I think this DIY gift project was a win-win for everyone! I hope you enjoy making the nameplate as much as we did.
