This nearly no-mess rock angels craft for kids is a great way to spend an afternoon trapped inside on a winter day. With just a few supplies, you’re ready to craft!

Set up this quick and adorable rock angels craft for the kids

My little girl is having a lot of fun painting rocks. The other day, she picked up a rock and screamed, “I need white feathers!” while running through the house.

She rummaged through her craft cabinet and with just a few supplies produced this adorable rock angel.

Once she told me how she did it, we had a great talk about mixed media art. She wanted to share it with her “Ruffles friends.”

So here you are, Ruffles friends: my daughter’s adorable rock angels craft for kids. And a bit of a different format because Elise really wanted to “write her own tutorial.”

Side note: how adorable is that, y’all?!

Supplies for Painted Rock Angels

Supplies to make an angel craft from rocks

For us, this craft had no glue and no mess. We paint a few rocks at a time so we can have them on hand for when inspiration strikes (or the witching hour arrives, whichever comes first).

  • Washi tape
  • White painted rock
  • 2 white feathers
  • A silver (or yellow) pipe cleaner
  • Black pen or marker

Instructions for Rock Angels (with a 5-Year-Old’s Tips)

You can watch the quick video below or follow these simple instructions.

Step 1: Paint

Paint a rock white.

Tip from a 5-year-old: paint a lot of rocks white.

For your rock angels craft be sure to stick on the feathers with washi tape

Step 2: Attach Feathers

Using washi tape, attach two feathers on the back of the rock. Isn’t this just the easiest and most simple rock painting idea for kids? Come on – they’re doing this all on their own!

Tip from a 5-year-old: it’s okay if you use a lot of tape. Just make sure they stick.
