Easy Painted Rock Snowflakes

Rock painting continues to be one of our favorite crafts. With just a few supplies and a bit of time you can create lovely little works of art. And the best part? Each is absolutely unique!

We love to place the rocks outdoors in our garden. But you can also use this in your seasonal decorating, as napkin weights, toys, flower pots and more.

Here are a few of our favorite painted rock projects here on the blog:

Supplies Needed for these Painted Rock Snowflakes:

Supplies needed for the rock painting. Includes eight rocks, a paint brush, paint and a snowflake template.

How to Paint Snowflakes on Rocks:

Before you get started, here are some helpful tips:

  • Wash the rocks and let them dry completely before painting.
  • Protect your work surface with a sheet of newspaper.
  • Use a fine tip paint brush for best results.
  • Long, steady and continual brush strokes work best when painting the snowflakes.

Choose a paint color for each snowflake and dip the fine tip paint brush into the paint.

Using the snowflake pattern template as a guide, begin to paint the snowflake directly onto the rock trying to copy the snowflake as best as possible.

Use different colors of paints for each stone and mix in some metallic ones as well.

The beach stones fit right in. But they also would look really cute as a napkin weights on the table.
