I’m such a scavenger. I love discovering beautiful things. Probably why I’ve always loved thrifting and antique shops; it’s like a treasure hunt! And when I’m out and about at the beach or on a walk, pretty rocks are my favorite discoveries.
I really can’t go to the coast without combing the beach and coming home with pockets full of sandy rocks. They’re so smooth and lovely, how can I resist?
But what to do with them? Until now, they’ve been filling this vase on our shelf. Pretty, but eh, kinda boring. So here’s a super fun tutorial for displaying my faves. Enjoy, my fellow rock scavengers.
If you’re not a rock hunter already, I think this post may very well convert you ;). And if so, you won’t be sorry! Just look at these awesome rock rings...
What you’ll need:
• Smooth, fairly flat rocks
• Mod Podge
• Ring backs
• Small paint brush
• Strong all-surface adhesive
Make sure the surfaces of your rocks are clean and dry. Then go to town decorating them any way you like! I love these concentric dotted circles – not difficult, just takes a steady, patient hand.
Look how cool :).
Next I swirled some paint and dipped the stone in a few times. This one is fun and easy.
They turned out so cool!
I also glued pretty, little groupings of small stones.
Once the paint has dried, and you’ve glued your lovely rocks to their backs, add a coat of Mod Podge to protect the paint and give it a nice sheen. Let that set and you’re good to go!
Beautiful, beautiful. How fun will it be to answer the question “Where’d you get that super neat ring?” with “I made it.” :)
