Looking for a last-minute Christmas Craft to keep the kiddos (and maybe yourself?!) busy these last few days leading up to Christmas? How about painting the nativity onto rocks? It’s a fun one! Painted Nativity Rocks
We made these at my craft club this month and it was fun to just sit down and have fun creating!
I don’t have much of a tutorial, because I don’t really know much about what I’m doing, and there are tons of people who are more expert at painting than I am. But it was fun to do, even if I can’t really paint people!! A few tips:
Painted Nativity Rocks
— You can buy rocks at Michael’s – who knew! The gray ones I bought there, and they have flat black ones as well. I also went to my local landscaping place and they gave me a small sack of rocks – so nice! I painted those with black craft paint – they’re the ones I used below
–I used regular craft paint. I did a double coat on most of the colors.
–I found some other painted nativity rocks online and just tried to emulate them. I think a sharpie would help to define lines and details.
–I haven’t sealed them yet with a clear coat, but I plan on doing that.
Grab some rocks and paint and have fun!!
