Welcome Rock

A new way to use rocks.

Approximate Time: 30 minutes



  • big smooth rock
  • acrylic paints
  • sealer


  1. Take a big smooth rock and clean it well, let dry.
  2. If the rock is dark, use light colored paints, if light, use dark paints. You could also paint the whole rock one color, but make sure it is dry before painting on the design.
  3. Then you can paint on anything you want. I chose to put our last name on ours, but you can put any thing you like. Paint flowers or other designs around the words.
  4. When paint is dry spray with sealer.

When I get a little more time, I am going to make one of these, probably on little rocks with people's names on them for gifts. It would be a nice gift for any occasion.
