This fun striped heart rock is simple to create and a fun way to play with patterns! Check out my tips in the video below!
Striped Heart Rock
I love painting heart rocks. Of course, painting them in February is a must, but I like to paint them all year long. They are definitely something that will brighten somebodies day when they find one in the park. I did a pole at the end of one of my Facebook lives and this striped heart rock won. And since I filed my taxes today, I needed a fun pick-me-up to get over the boring process of taxes. Rock painting is always more fun than taxes.

How to paint hearts on rocks!
You can grab the fine tipped Posca pens that I used on this heart rock here.
Step by step instructions for this striped pattern
To draw a perfect heart, I use a post-it note to create a template. The sticky part of the post-it helps to keep it in place while you trace the shape onto the rock.
For these striped rocks, paint the background stripes first. Alternate your colors as you fill your heart. I used three colors for this rock, but you can do as many colors as you want. Play around with the thickness of the lines too. I did some thick lines and thinner lines.
101 Tip!: If your Posca paint pens need a good mix, give them to your kids to shake!
Once all the stripes are painted, add a black line in between each color.
Now it’s time to add some designs to the stripes. For the skinny stripes, I used a simple dot pattern.
Some other fun patterns to try:
- 3 lines in one direction, followed by three lines in the other direction.
- Scallop edges.
- Vertical stripes.
- Half heart curls.
- X pattern (which will create diamonds)
- Half Circles
Finish the rock by touching up the original heart with your black Posca paint pen.
