Low Budget Rock Painting

Over the last couple of years rock painting has become really popular and you can often spot decorated rocks and pebbles whilst out and about, but especially in local parks or nature reserves.

JJ and I have wanted to try this for a while and after we gave it a try on our recent visit to Wordsworth House we thought we'd try it at home. I soon discovered that the special pens can be a little pricey! With prices starting at £12 and going upwards to £25, this craft does can be pricey! But at Wordsworth House I found a more affordable way to rock paint and now it's time to share it with you!

To get crafty with us and paint your own rocks and pebbles you will need............

  • Rocks or pebbles
  • Correction pen - 69p @ Home Bargains
  • Felt tips - I used a mix of felt tips we had already, any will do!
  • Newspaper, mat or cloth to protect crafting area

Supplies listed

Start off by protecting your work surface and ensuring your pebbles or rocks are clean. If necessary give them a rinse but make sure they are completely dry before you start crafting. 

Now, using the correction pen start to create your design.

Next, go over the design with your felt tips and leave to dry again.

That's it you're done. Add your painted rocks or pebbles to your garden or why not hide them for someone else to find!
