Dress up ordinary rocks with simple paint, then arrange them in your garden or on the patio.


What You Need:
  • Large rocks
  • Paintbrushes
  • Acrylic paints
  • Sponge (optional)

  • Sponge brush
  • Water-base nontoxic gloss exterior varnish
Instructions:
  1. Make sure rocks are clean. Paint clean rocks in assorted colors. Give the rocks a second or third coat of paint if necessary. For fun, paint a separate rock pink or red to use for a forked tongue.
  2. Decorate rocks with stripes, dots, sponging, or spattering using a paintbrush, sponge, or toothbrush. Or write the letters of your name on individual rocks.
