Painted Rock Craft
We made it to the one month mark in the #stayhomestaysafe Covid-19 order, and I pray you are all doing well. The social distancing hasn’t been bad for this home body, but I miss being able to interact with people. It has been a roller coaster of emotions, but all I can say is, THANK GOD FOR SPRING! It has been a great time to catch up on things that have been pushed on the back burner, but I thought I would share a super easy, just-for-fun project. Browsing Pinterest resulted in finding this painted rock craft that ended up being so soothing one afternoon.
Voilà Cacti Arrangement
- Stones – river rocks are a good size
- Craft paint
- Fine paint brushes
- Flower pot – size depends on how many stones you wish to paint and arrange.
- Dirt, sand, or gravel to fill the pot.
- Decorative pebbles or gems for the top layer
- Faux flower petals
The directions are simple!
- Fill your flower pot with dirt, sand, leaving space at the top to add the decorative top layer.
