Our Painted River Rock Creations!!! Rock Painting Tutorial

If you have been reading out blog for a while you know that I love painting river rocks that we “hunt” for along the Delaware and Beaverkill Rivers.  This year I also started picking up truck loads of huge river rocks for a landscaping project I am working on.  More on that soon.  I wanted to share some of what I have been working on so far this summer.

I have a neat project I am almost done with and will show you soon, it’s a great idea for someone who loves plants but has a brown thumb.

If you want to try this, it’s easy.  Just collect your rocks, paint and seal them with Mod Podge.  I just use craft paint you can find in any craft store or even Walmart.  Also, for details you can use the Elmer’s Painter Pens.  Share with me if you try this, I would love to see your creations!

    Oh my gosh! These are so simple yet so clever! I seriously never would’ve thought of this! I absolutely love the owl one you made but I pinned the candy corn ones so I will remember for next year!

    My daughters enjoy collecting rocks when we play outside and they love painting. Though, we’ve never painted rocks before. I love these creative ideas. Rock painting will be a great activity for them to do over summer break.
