Step 4. Trace and Paint Scrabble Letters and Numbers
Print out the letters (400 font size) and letter values (96 font size) to complete your word of choice (this example uses the word “love”). Center each printout on a tile. Letters should be 1 to 2 inches from the top and bottom of the tiles. Trace the letters by pressing firmly with a sharp pencil to etch the letters into the wood. Remove the paper and use a straightedge to follow the etch lines with your pencil. Use the same method to trace small point numbers in the bottom, right-hand corner of the tile. Point numbers should be about 1 inch tall and 1/2 inch from the corner edges. Apply black paint with a small paintbrush to your letters and shapes. Work in small strokes to keep the edges clean and straight.
Tip: Arial works great as the classic Scrabble font. Letters should appear in all-caps. You can find a complete Scrabble letter values chart online.
