Making word clouds with Wordle is fun: http://www.wordle.net/

They make a great addition to websites or you can print them out for gifts.

[Example – I framed one for a co-worker after using her name and adjectives to describe her.]

First click “Create.” Paste a bunch of text into the box (or use a website address). Then play around with the fonts, colors, and word positions.

Hints:

  • If you type the same word in the box multiple times (e.g., three or more), the larger it will appear in the final design.
  • To save the final design, take a screen shot and then save it in a JPEG format or other suitable format.
  • The FAQ page is quite helpful: http://www.wordle.net/faq
