I had such good intentions of getting this St. Patrick’s Day Tic Tac Toe post written up yesterday and scheduled to post early this morning. Well, by the time I got the pictures taken and edited, it was time for me to leave for Bunko. I was gone to that until 10:30 pm last night and by that point, after getting up before 6 am, I was ready to go to bed. So I went to bed last night thinking, I’ll get up and write the post up really quick in the morning. Well, instead of getting up early and writing this post, I got up early and had a date with Jillian Michael’s (30-day Shread) and worked out. You might be thinking, so what, but you guys, this is the first time that I’ve worked out since I was pregnant with my now one year old. A few weeks back I had someone ask me if I was pregnant. I’m not sure if someone had mentioned something to her that made her think that, or if she came up with it all on her own, but it was hurtful no less. Honestly, I’m not all that worried about my weight. I never have been. Would it be nice to lose a few pounds? Yes. But more than that, I just want to feel healthy and be in better shape. So, I’m going to start trying to workout at least a few times a week. Ideally, I would do it five times a week, but we’ll see how that goes. So far today, my legs feel like jello and I can hardly walk up and down my stairs. I can’t wait to see how bad I hurt tomorrow. 😉
Anyway, I’m sure you didn’t come here to hear about my working out, so I’ll share this super fast and fun project with you.

St. Patrick’s Day Tic Tac Toe Supplies:
- Cricut Explore Air 2
- Standard Grip Mat
- Window Cling Material in Color of Choice
- Cricut Design Space File
I designed the tic tac toe (#) in Cricut Design Space and then found a shamrock I could use in place of the O’s. The I found an X as well. To cut these, I set my machine to the custom setting, and then on the computer selected “window cling”. I cut the shamrocks out of green, the x’s out of white, and the board out of black.
Once I had them all cut, I was ready to weed them.
Once I had them weeded, they were ready to go on the window. I really wanted to get a frame and put it on the frame, so my kids could sit on the floor and play it, but I didn’t have one on hand.
So we used a bedroom window. My kids are pretty excited with how this turned out, and excited about playing St. Patrick’s Day tic tac toe together.
This is such a simple and quick project and the kids will love playing it. Plus, the shamrocks could be changed out for almost any shape for any time of year!
