Mod Podge Painted Rocks

Photobucket
When we go to the farm in the country we like to do crafts.
We set up a craft table and leave it up all summer!
Photobucket
A typical day in the country goes like this: 
*Early morning walk with the dogs* *Cooking breakfast together* *Swimming laps* 
*Spend the day by the pool* *Change clothes* *DO CRAFTS* *Grill out* 
*Watch movies~make homemade ice cream~frog hunt~bonfire~or star watch* 
*Go to bed* 
*Get up the next day and do it all over again* Photobucket
This summer we decided to paint rocks.
Photobucket
If you haven't painted rocks in awhile...you need to.
It's totally therapeutic.
It's relaxing.
It's the perfect way to end a day on the farm.
Photobucket
To paint rocks you'll need water-based acrylic paints...in fun colors. 
You'll also need rocks! Photobucket
And Mod Podge! Photobucket Begin by painting the rocks. Photobucket Paint several rocks at a time letting the paint dry in between designs like stripes and dots. Photobucket
It's fun to see the different designs that everyone creates. Photobucket You can paint your legs if you like!
 Anything goes at the craft table! Photobucket Let the painted rocks dry completely. 
Then comes the FUN part!
MOD PODGE BABY! 
Who doesn't LOVE slathering a craft down with MOD PODGE!
PhotobucketBrush each painted rock with several coats of Mod Podge. Photobucket And there you have it!
Painted Rocks!
 Such a FUN summer craft!

    1. Yes! You can create all kinds of things with painted rocks!
      We used to glue little painted rocks to big painted rocks and make
      animals like turtles and pigs!
      So fun!

  8. Teresa....these really are DARLING! I am so, so terrible at crafts, so I love crafts projects that look easy and aren't to "fiddly." ;) Wish I would have thought of this when we were homeschooling, but hey, it's not too late. I'm gonna find some MANLY paint colors for my boy. ;)
