tic tac toe

I loved tic tac toe as a kid. When I saw a similar idea to this one online, I knew I could make these for practically free. I thought they would be cute to have on a coffee table or up at our family's cabin. I "borrowed" a few duplicate tile samples from work and whipped up two boards. I love how they turned out.


Here is what you'll need to make your own:

6x6 tile (or other base)
10 round stones
painters tape
small paint brush
exacto knife
paint (I used leftover paint samples and acrylic)


[1] Start by painting "X"s and "O"s onto your stones with acrylic paint (5 each)
Set them aside to dry.

[2] Using the painters tape, tape off a "#" shaped grid.
Using the exacto knife, cut away unneeded tape.

[3] Apply 2 thin layers of paint to your grid (allowing a little bit of dry time in between coats).

[4] Carefully remove the tape and you're all done!
