Christmas Gnomes Rock Painting Idea
Isn’t this gnome story stone set just adorable? We had some time before a playdate when my daughter started singing Jingle Bells.
Yes, that’s enough to start me crafting Christmas stones, friends. I have no will power and cannot resist a Christmas carol.
Because we used natural rocks – see which rocks we like getting at home improvement stores – this rock painting idea was very quick to come together. So let’s get started.
Psst: did you spot those cute little Harvest or Fall gnomes? They’re coming next week to Ruffles and Rain Boots!
Supplies for Christmas Gnome Rock Painting
As with all of our rocks, we know the materials can make or break the fun and artistry in rock painting. Here’s what we used:
- clean rocks
- acrylic paints (we use Deco Art Americana most of the time)
- this size of our favorite paint pens
- ModPodge and wipe-on polyurethane
- pencil and paintbrush (or foam brush)
Scroll back up to see the ridiculously quick video to help show you how we layer the design. The layers will help your Christmas gnome rock painting cuties be vibrant.
