Painters Paint Markers Project #GlueNGlitter #CBias

Crafting with Elmers

Spring has me literally running from garden to back yard area then back in the house with projects galore happening. I was excited to get to try the Elmers Painters Paint Markers and create a fun project. I love working with old windows and have them scattered around my yard. They just feel so rustic to me. We play a lot of board games around the fire at night so my thought was to re-purpose an old window and use something for the checkers that I already had. But first I had to head to Walmart to find the markers.

I headed to the craft section and was in heaven with all the awesome items I could use. These are New at Walmart Single Painters Paint Markers for $1.97, that was what I was on a mission to find and I did. You can see my whole shopping experience here.

I was looking for Red, White and Black for my DIY Checkerboard project.

Once I got home I found my corks and cut them in half for the checkers, 12 red and 12 black.

Now time to cut them.

Tip options include (fine tip, medium tip, and chisel tip.) I went with the medium. I painted the corks black and red.

That tip worked perfect for this!

I then measured  squares and made them out to be two inch squares, my husband helped me with this because well it started to look like math!

I was ready to paint!

This was looking great!

Are you ready to play some checkers? I painted the frame with white paint, I decided not to use the marker for time sake. I wanted this to look old and weathered.
