How to Make a Tic Tac Toe Board Game
Start by finding rocks in a size that will work with your wood slice. Be sure they are clean and dry.
Add a few coats of paint to each rock. I paint the top, sides, and also the bottom for a more finished look. Allow these to dry completely before continuing.
You will need five rocks in one color and five in another.
Once dry, you can add your flowers. Use the wrong end of the paintbrush to make dots on the rocks that look like flowers. You can see one example below.
Add as many or as few flowers to your rocks as you like. You can do these in any colors you like as well.
While your rocks are drying, cut the grid and the words from vinyl in any color using your Cricut. Then weed away all excess vinyl.
I didn’t use transfer tape to move the grid from the backing to the wood slice, but you can if you want. Just be sure to center and burnish down well. You can also just cut straight lines with your Cricut and use up less vinyl.
For the tic tac toe words, add transfer tape then peel away the backing.
Put into place on the wood slice and burnish down well.
Then remove the transfer tape.
Once your rocks are dry, you are ready to play a game with your new tic tac toe board game.
