Andy’s mama was in town for a week, and we did lots of fun things including hiking on the greenbelt. If you follow me on instagram, you might remember this picture. The greenbelt was dry in this particular spot, so I took the opportunity to rock hunt. The rocks were all the same color and round and flat. What kind of craft could I made with rock because you know I couldn’t help but bring some home! I did this fun round up on 18 DIY lawn games, and Andy even made us a corn hole game (I’m workin’ on a corn hole tutorial)!
So, I guess outside games were on the brain, and tic tac toe popped up. These rocks were perfect for it! You only need 10 rocks, I’ve got some fun plans for the others!
Here’s what you need to make an outdoor tic tac toe:
- 10 flat rocks
- Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage paper cutouts
- Martha Stewart Crafts decoupage
- paint brush
- old cutting board paint
- painters tape
- sand paper
I decided to make my tic tac toe pieces first! You’ll need 10 pieces in all, 5 of one image and 5 of another. These are really easy to do, punch out the Martha Stewart cutouts and apply decoupage to the rock and the back of the cut out. Brush it on, and make sure to brush out all of the air bubbles.
Here are the 2 cut outs I decided to use:
I found this crusty cutting board at a thrift store for $2. I used my handy Dremel to sand her down.
I whitewashed the top of the board. White wash is fancy for watered down white paint, ha!
Then I measured out my tic tac toe lines and taped them off with painters tape.
Next, decoupage over the whole thing to seal it, and voila… you’re all done!
Set her on your outside table, and watch the happy tic tac toe players come along!
