Painted rocks as an easy garden decoration

Rocks are like little canvases that can provide a burst of colour in the garden, especially in the winter months. I really enjoy painting rocks that I have found. It is a quick, stress free project. The kids have enjoyed painting rocks with me as well.

Always clean your rock first before painting it.  It is also a good idea to cover with a coat of sealer (found in craft stores). Once dry, paint on whatever design you like. When you are happy with your design and it is dry, coat with exterior varnish. The exterior varnish is great for keeping the design intact through the rain, snow and sun.

I really enjoy having these decorative rocks around the garden. They really brighten up the garden.

Happy Painting! Hope you try this fun project.

 

This one I painted over 7 years ago
