Naughty or Nice -- Your Number's Up! + DIY Dishwasher Magnets

Hi everyone :)

I've been away from the computer for so long! Summer break kept us very busy and being a stay at home mom, I didn't have much time in my craft room.  School starts soon so I should hopefully be back in the swing of things.  I know I've said that before, but I'm going to try even harder this time!

This is the mid-month reminder post for Naughter or Nice's Challenge:  Your Number's Up.  You have complete control over what you make as long as there is a number in there somewhere.  I went a different route this month and am very excited about this craft!  We always encourage you to be naughty or nice with the NON challenge, and I like to think this project is a little bit dirty (even if it is in the literal sense) LOL

I've been scouring yard sales for an old Scrabble game and happened to stumble across one for $1 recently.  It was missing 17 tiles but I rooted through the box to make sure it had exactly what I needed....and it did :) Squeal! I was so excited to get this project started!  My  husband or son always ask me if the dishes in the dishwasher are clean or dirty. so this project was a definite solution and has been on the top of my crafty to-do list for a long time.

Easy process from start to finish:

Pick out tiles to spell CLEAN and DIRTY
Hot glue them onto the Scrabble display
Hot glue a magnet to the back
Never get asked again if dishes in the dishwasher are clear or dirty (my favorite part lol)

They've been dropped a few times since my son and I made them a few weeks ago, and a couple of letters popped up, but it was a super easy fix.  I don't think I used enough glue the first time around, so I just added more and haven't had a problem since.

I've seen similar projects like this, but none using the little Scrabble tile holders. I'm really happy with the result and haven't been asked since if the dishes are clean or dirty <3

Thanks a lot for stopping by today! Don't forget to stop by the NON blog to enter your cards or projects. You have until the 25th of the month :)


  1. What a fun idea! Being the Troublemakers we are, I'm glad to see dirty scores higher than clean. :D

  2. Totally brilliant! What a clever idea, Jo x


No need to be shy! I love getting comments and appreciate every one :)
