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!

How to make a DIY outdoor tic toe set
Step 1- Gather river rocks
You need 10 rocks total. It’s best if they are flat and round, but any rocks will work. You need 5 of one image and 5 of another.
Step 2- Decoupage
This is really easy to do, punch out the Martha Stewart cutouts and apply Mod Modge or 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:
Step 3- Prepare cutting board
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!
Step 4- Measure
Then I measured out my tic tac toe lines and taped them off with painters tape.
Step 5- Seal the board
Next, decoupage over the whole thing to seal it, and voila… you’ve got an outdoor tic toe set!
Set her on your outside table, and watch the happy tic tac toe players come along!
Have you ever made a tic toe set? I’d love to hear…
