Make a DIY Tic-Tac-Toe Gameboard (tutorial)!!

Enjoy this Tic Tac Toe Game

{{{Happy Valentine’s Day}}}

Hello Tatertots and jello readers – Jen here from CraftOManiac and I am soooo tickled to be here on TT&J today. 

Today I am sharing with you guys my 

“DIY Tic-Tac-Toe game board”

You can play it with your two favorite treats anytime of the year and the winner gets to eat his/or her treats! Just don’t play to many rounds you may get a tummy ache. winks. If you don’t want to play with treats you can use cut out x and o’s or something else you have in mind.
All the supplies needed for this project I got at Michael’s.

Here is what I did:

  • I started by painting my board first with acrylic paint in “Patina” as well as the wood round ball feet.
  • Then I let them all dry fully.
  •  Once all is dried,  I used 600 grit sand paper and sanded the top of the board real well, giving it a nice smooth surface.
  • I sanded all sides of the board and the feet to give it a bit of a worn look as well.
  • I then used my polka dot tape and tapped down my tic tac toe board.
  • Then I sealed the tape with some matte mod podge.
  • Lastly, I hot glued on the feet. DONE!


{{Super fun}} [Super easy] and your kids will {{SUPER love it.}}
