If you like to stroll through your town, or hike in a pretty place, chances are you’ve come across hand-painted rocks. These are a new, popular DIY trend that have made a resurgence. In some communities, people post on Facebook in their local groups where people can find the rocks and then the people who’ve found them share photos of both finding them & then re-hiding them.
For a DIY-er, hand painted rocks are an ideal project. Why? Well, some are quite simple and others are much more intricate. It is easy to choose a rock design you can complete in an afternoon, or one that will take you a couple of weekends to do. There are so many choices for types of rocks you can DIY. Some of our favorites include rocks with messages or inspirational sayings – as these are perfect to give to someone, or to keep with you when you need that extra pick-me-up as you go about your day.
Hand painted rocks are a fun family DIY project or are great to do for a kids’ party. The only challenge will be drying the rocks before sending them home, it may be best to have families pick them up at a later day and time.
