I’m so glad I bought a few of these little divided boxes at Dollar Tree last Spring. I knew I’d eventually use them. I bought the heart ornaments last year and they fit perfectly into the squares. They would be cute just placed in the box and put on display, but I had another idea.
I started by taking the hooks off the back of the box so it would sit flat.
Then I decided to paint it Spa Blue (mostly because I already had it in my craft room) but I do love red and blue together.
What a pretty color. It reminds me of warm weather, not the bone chilling cold weather we have right now. I debated whether to sand the edges or not. I still might sand it later.
I used my Cricut to cut some x’s and o’s out of shelf paper, then adhered them to the hearts.
My kids love playing tic tac toe, so I knew this would be the perfect thing to make.
And it looks cute while it’s not being played.
I decided to put it on the little table between the 2 chairs, so anyone could play when the mood strikes them.
Another free craft/game by just using things I already have in my craft room. What can you make with things you already have?
