Father’s Day Present

Photobucket

For Father’s Day you could easily make Dad the Mothers’ Day gift I posted about last month or…have fun with paint like we did! I love days like this where we spend the whole morning together, listening to our favorite music and sitting around the table together painting. Best. Day. Ever…Well, so far this week!

My aunt did this project; don’t hers look perfect? She’s placed them in her beautiful garden. Here is our knock-off version:

Supplies:

  • Arcylic Paints
  • Sharpies
  • Large rocks
  • Pencil
  • Paintbrushes
  • Varathane “Spar Urethane–Outdoor” by Rust-Oleum (a clear, water-base ssemi-gloss coating intended to protect outdoor furniture but it can be used on different types of surfaces)
  • Cute hands or paws to trace

Directions:

Photobucket

Clean the rocks you want to personalize and let dry.

Photobucket

Trace or draw the names, paws, hands, images you want on the rock lightly with a pencil.

Photobucket

Paint them in with the acrylic paints.

Photobucket

When dry, give the images more sharpness by outlining them with the sharpies.

Photobucket

Take the rocks outside and spray with the “Spar Urethane–Outdoor” to make them all shiny and ready for outside.

Then surprise your dad on Father’s Day!
