Outdoor DIY Tic Tac Toe


Welcome to June's Pinterest Challenge hosted by Alexandra @ EyeLoveKnots. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate us to actually make  something that we have pinned!  This month's challenge topic is Summer Fun. And I was inspired by this pin to create an Outdoor DIY Tic Tac Toe game.

For summer fun, why not take a classic game like Tic Tac Toe from inside the house to outdoors in the yard with this easy to make wood letters and rope version!  Perfect to keep both grownups and kids entertained - while upping the fun factor for outdoor family gatherings. 

And in case you need a refresher, the goal of tic tac toe is to get three Os or Xs in a row. - either horizontal, vertical or diagonal! It's a game of dexterity and skill - and who can outsmart their opponent! Fun Fun Fun!

Materials Needed:
Five 8" wooden Os
Five 8" wooden Xs
Four 40" L ropes
Fabri-Tac Fabric glue
Painter's tape
Acrylic paints
Paint foam sponge dabbers
Stars stencil

Let's get started!   After looking all over for the best prices on wood letters - (they can get quite expensive buying a bunch) I found the best price at Walmart - 8" wood letters for $1.97! Woo, hoo! Not bad for an outdoor game! I got five of each, X and O.
Next, started painting the letters using a sponge and multi-purpose craft paint in patriotic colors - perfect for holidays and summer!
First, the Os in red .  .  . 
and the Xs in blue.

Then use painter's tape to add stripes on the Os .  .  .
painting the open areas in white .  .  .
for a cool patriotic look!
Next, use a paint dabber to stencil on stars to the Xs!
And finally, cut four strips of rope, 40 inches long to create the lines of the tic tac toe board. Seal the ends with fast drying fabric glue to prevent fraying.
Easy peasy to make for summertime fun!

  1. Clever idea - I am intrigued by you using sponges to paint, rather than a brush, do you find that easier? I am wondering if it's quicker? This is a perfect outdoor game for all ages. well done!

    1. Thanks, Patti! I'm a very bad painter - I never liked painting, drawing and coloring, even as a kid. For me, it seems sponges don't show streaks as much as brushes do. It's probably because I use cheap brushes, lol!

  2. What a fun, outdoor game for summer! I'll bet the kids love it.

  3. Such a great idea! My kids would love this Tic Tac Toe! I love the stripes and the stars!
