We are back with another Craft Lightning Challenge and this time is is all about painted rocks.  Have you ever searched Pinterest for painted rocks?

There are not only a ton of ideas, but there are some unbelievably cool and creative ones! Some of them look like they could be in an art museum.

One of the reasons why painted rocks are so popular is you can just have fun with it. Painted rocks are also a super fun craft to make with the kiddos over the Summer.

We all know how bored they can get after a couple weeks out of school. You can make searching for the rocks part of the experience. My kids loved gathering rocks or sea shells when they were little.

In fact, I am using a couple of their painted shells as paper weights on my desk to this day. They are over 20 years old and represent a great memory. 

I’ve always felt there are no mistakes with crafting. The rocks are free, so it’s not like you are ruining a canvas if you mess it up, right?

If you did something that was not what you expected, just go with it and create something new!

The one rule with the Craft Lightning Challenge is that the craft has to be made in less than 15 minutes, minus drying time. This painted rock can definitely be made in less than 15 minutes.

Instructions:

Step 1.

Remove any dust or dirt from the rock. You can just use a wet paper towel.

Step 2.

Paint the rock with a couple of coats of your base paint until it is covered completely and let it dry overnight.

Step 3.

flamingo transfer

Place your transfer onto the garden rock ensuring you are happy with the placement.

Step 4.

Add the chalkology paste to the transfer using the small squeegee, ensuring it has good coverage. As the rock has bumps and grooves in some places, you really want to add enough paste to cover the transfer.

Step 5.

Let the painted garden rock dry for a few hours and then use a clear sealant to protect it in the outdoor elements.

That’s it! Now just place it in your garden, or by the front door where your friends and family can see it and admire your creativity!

You can see how I made the mini truck succulent planter here and the herb garden planter here.

I agree that this is a great activity for kids! It would be great for all the grandkids to paint one for my mom's garden.
