ABC Rocks

Photo is from I am Momma - Hear Me Roar

I found these ABC rocks on I Am Momma Hear Me Roar  and I loved them (click on the link to see her post! It is called Alphabet Rocks. She has good ideas if you would like to try painting a set.  I love her blog!).  I want a set but I do not have the time to handpaint them.  So once again -  the scrapbook section of Michael's to the rescue!  I found these:

Remember your 40% off coupon!
What you will need:  About 3 bags of rocks, Modge Podge, sealant like Clear Koat, and paper letters from scrapbooking section (do not get any raised letters - you want flat paper letters for best results).

I Modge Podged these on to the rocks.
  • First spread a layer of Modge Podge on the bare rock. Put the letter on top of wet Modge Podge.
  • Next, spread a layer of Modge Podge over the top of letter (you can use a brush or your finger).



Let them dry and seal with a sealant.  Easy peasy (and fast)!!


Thank you Cheri for the great idea of an alphabet rock set!

  4. I would really love to paint a set sometime in the future but until then - this is my solution! I saw another blogger who painted the abc's on rocks and it was stunning.
