Fun-to-Paint Garden Rocks

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)
  • Toothbrush (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.
  3. Paint eyes and a grin on the rock that's the snake's head.
  4. Using a sponge brush, apply varnish to the rocks. Arrange the rocks in a line to resemble a snake.
