A while back, a friend of mine told me of a way to "paint" rocks with napkins. They make for a cute decoration in your home or office! So I finally decided to try it for myself. I wasn't sure what glue to buy from the bookstore (you see, we don't have craft stores here) so I thought maybe my Mod Podge, from another project of mine that didn't work out so well, might do the trick. It worked perfectly! To be honest I was a little bummed that I brought the "MP" all the way from the States only to see that it looks just like Elmer's Glue but costs $7.00! I'm not sure if it has the same glueing power as Elmer's, but it's magic, and I'm stuck! So here is my tutorial on "painted" rocks....
You'll need: Mod Podge(mine is matte), scissors, paintbrush, and napkins with a cute print
|Cut out desired print. My napkins have a "coffee" theme. How appropriate since I work in the bar at the hotel!|
|I cut a piece too big for my rock. Cut again.|
|Start by applying a thin layer to your rock with the Mod Podge.|
|Immediately lay on the napkin and spread another layer on top.|
Thank you for making these pretty "painted" rocks with me!
