Hi guys! Guess what – it’s not a furniture post! Believe it or not, I’m a little crafty too and have missed the simple crafts that I used to enjoy.
Here we are headed into another beautiful weekend in Texas! We have been sprucing up our yard, planting more trees and shrubs and tending to our new garden! All of these spring activities inspired me to work on this little craft.
Garden Tic Tac Toe! To see it in full view please read along…I hope it inspires you too!
Tic Tac Toe – Three in a Row!
I feel like the simple classic games are getting lost in today’s times, so I love how this is a fun take on the old-time favorite!
I gathered rocks that were rounded, flat and smooth and painted them with red and yellow acrylic craft paint.
Here they are with two coats of paint.
I then just grabbed a Sharpie pen and got a little crafty. Any permanent marker or paint pen will do. You don’t have to be super artistic on this one, just draw some straight lines. In fact, my youngest kiddo even helped out a bit. We sat outside enjoying the gorgeous Spring weather while doing this, loved every minute.
I also added some silver eyes with a metallic marker I had on hand.
I purchased the wood slice from our local craft store. It’s a shame because we live on 3 acres full of trees but it’s super hard to cut a small smooth wood piece with a big chain saw, so I opted to buy a piece instead. Be sure and double check the size you want if ordering online. Mine was about 12inches round.
