DIY TRAVEL TIC TAC TOE GAME
Summer is here which means road trips, games and when I was a kid – camping! I love carrying on these traditions with my family, especially if it means unplugging and getting back to nature. I have created a DIY Travel Tic Tac Toe game from a burlap sack so the kids can play where ever we may go!
This project is a part of the Craft Lighting Burlap Week where we are sharing 15 minute crafts you can make at home. If you missed any of the creativity, be sure to catch up with day one HERE and scroll to the bottom of this post for more ideas.
HERE’S WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO CREATE A DIY TRAVEL TIC TAC TOE GAME:
- Burlap Drawstring Bag
- Americana Paints by DecoArt – Lavender, Sour Apple and Laguna
- Americana Dura Clear Matte Varnish by DecoArt
- River Rocks – 12 small and flat
- Painters Tape, Paint Brush #4 Flat, Palette, Paper Towels, Scrap of Cardboard, Ruler, Pencil
Measure and lightly sketch grid on to burlap bag. Apply painters tape to create two vertical lines 1/4″ wide each. Apply Lavender paint, remove the tape, and let dry. Repeat with horizontal lines, let dry.
Paint X’s on six rocks with Laguna paint, let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. Paint O’s on six rocks with Sour Apple paint, let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Once the paint is dry, apply two coats of Dura Clear Matte Varnish, letting rocks dry between coats.
Fill the bag with the rocks to travel and then set the game up anywhere to play!
I love the brights pops of vibrant colors against the natural burlap and rocks! Have the kids collect rocks from their travels to make this game an extra special keepsake. This DIY Travel Tic Tac Toe Game is so quick and easy that you can let the kids help paint, create and even personalize it!
