Supplies needed to make a camper rock:
- Rock in camper shape
- Paints in the colors of your choice
- Paintbrushes (a round pouncer brush for the wheels make painting easier)
How to make this painted rocks craft:
This one really can’t be simpler. I started with the white and aqua and painted the top and bottom of my camper rock. Allow those two colors to dry. You may actually need 2 to 3 coats to cover the rock adequately just be sure to dry in between coats. You can also paint the back of the rock if you would like.
Then, once the paint is dry, add on the door and window in pink paint as shown below. Set aside and allow to dry.
I then painted the top of my camper with some more of the aqua and added on accents in black. Outline as shown below and also add a tire to the back. For the tire, a round pouncer brush will help you make a circle. Then add some green grass to the bottom of your camper.
Allow the entire painted rocks craft to dry completely then add to your garden or any potted plant.
This cute camper will look right at home and you will love the simple touch it gives to your outdoor space.
