Rock Painting Ideas
At Rock Painting 101, we LOVE to paint rocks. I mean LOVE. But sometimes you see all the rock painting ideas floating around Instagram and Pinterest and think “I could never do that…”
We’re here to help you create beautiful rocks that you will love! So let’s get inspired with some easy rock painting ideas!
Stone painting has been around for years! I started painting rocks with my kids. As we painted more and more, I realized that I enjoyed it just as much (if not more) than my kiddos did.
When I started looking for inspiration, so much of it was so advanced that I started to feel overwhelmed. I consider myself a very creative and artistic person, if I was overwhelmed… so were a lot of others.
So I started to share my ideas in a Facebook group. Then I added a Facebook page. Now I have this little corner of the internet.
I hope that you poke around and get inspired to try rock painting. Even the beginner can make beautifully painted stones. You just need a few more tips!
If you’re just browsing for inspiration, no worries! Save this collection of cute painted rocks and you can reference them any time!
