Decorative Painted Rocks

If you're looking for a quick and easy craft to do with your kids, you've come to the right place. These Decorative Painted Rocks are cute and can be made by anyone of any age. Take a nature walk with your kids or grandkids to find some smooth river rocks for these painted rock projects. Or, in a pinch, you can probably find some rocks outside your house or along your driveway.
Smooth stones work best for these stunning garden craft ideas. You can decorate your rocks with inspiration words or paint them to look like little critters to put along the edge of your garden. Your kids will love putting faces on their new little friends! Display them on a windowsill so everyone can enjoy them.

I have painted rocks before and it is actually a lot of fun! I made lady bug rocks and gave them away to use as paper weights or door stops, but using them in a potted plant, or even in a garden bed of flowers would be a lovely accent! Another option is to paint the recipients' name on the rock, or to use them to identify herbs or garden veggies by placing a rock with the name of the plant next to it. Great idea!
