Create a seasonal twist on tic tac toe with Expressions Washi Tape* and Expressions Masking Tape*. This is a great project for parents looking to entertain kids at a Halloween party.


*May damage some substrates upon removal.

  • Lay out strips of Expressions Washi Tape on a cutting mat. With a hobby knife, cut the tape lengthwise into thirds to create thin strips.


  • Apply the tape to the pumpkins, then use a bone folder to secure the tape to the pumpkin.


  • Use scissors or a hobby knife to trim excess tape.


  • Create your nine-square game board with Expressions Masking Tape. A straightedge will help make even lines.



  • EXPERT TIP: Mix orange pumpkins and white pumpkins for the two teams. One team gets horizontal lines. One team gets vertical lines.
