Here is a great way to make use of lost game pieces and extra tiles from home improvement projects!
• 1 ceramic tile, 12 by 12 inches
• 1 Sharpie marker and ruler
• 4 wood balls, a half-inch in diameter
• 10 wood disks or squares
• Assorted water-based acrylic paints, paintbrush
• Liquid Fusion Non-Toxic adhesive
Directions: Paint a base coat on the disks/squares – five in one color and five in a contrasting color. Let dry and then paint an “X” on five of them and “O” on the remaining five. Set aside and let dry. Paint the wood balls and let dry. Flip the tile upside down and apply adhesive to the bottom of each ball. Place one in each corner and let dry for an hour. Flip the tile right side up and using the ruler draw four lines to create the grid for the game.
Variations: You can use just about anything for the game pieces. Aside from gluing your photos on wood pieces, you can rubber-stamp or paint designs on the wood, or use found objects such as coins or washers. You can also use polymer clay.
Peace, love, and glitter!
