In keeping with the WellieWishers theme I wanted to include this Tic-Tac-Toe game for the party guests to bring home and enjoy over and over again. It’s an adaptation from the Garden Party Table and Chairs and I thought it was the perfect party favor to say “thank you” for coming!
There were 20 children at our WellieWishers Party so I had to make 20 sets. Yes, that’s 200 gems! It was a tiny bit daunting at first but it actually didn’t take that long, which is why I’m sharing it here and saying, you can do it too!
At first I was concerned about making the lines perfect on the bees, but about 5 bees into my project I realized they’re just as cute if they’re a little squiggly. I also did 2 coats on every bee (which isn’t shown in the video) because it made the yellow pop a little bit more.
Step-By-Step DIY Video:
- Jumbo gems (you’ll need 10 gems for each game)
- Red, black, yellow & green paint (I recommend spray paint for the bases if you have several sets to do)
- Paint brush
- Jumbo craft sticks
*I also used muslin bags replaced with ribbon to hold the games and made a little “thank you” tag for each bag. Since the game itself wasn’t quite in our color scheme, I definitely wanted the packaging to be!
