You Rock Valentine Tutorial
First up, you’ll want to prep your rocks. I gave ours a quick rinse because they had some dirt and dust on them. Then I went ahead and painted all the rocks white. I did this so that the colors would pop more. Once the white was dry, I painted on the desired colors. I just used regular craft paint for both the colors and the white. I painted 2 coats of color.
Once the color coat was dry, I painted a small heart on each rock – I just love this touch to the project!
It’s fun to have lots of different color options!
Then to attach the tag, I just used twine wrapped around the rock – easy peasy!
I just love how they turned out!!
