Spring Stones



Here's a pretty one for your favorite rock collector.

First came some lovely glass stones.


Though the stones came with a sign that said they were just waiting to be painted,

I knew they begged something else.

I found just the thing.


We selected a stone,

and then found just the bit of paper for that particular shape and size.


Holding the stone carefully and firmly to the paper, I cut on an inward angle around the stone.

After carefully placing the stone down on the table, maintaining the same angle,

we brushed the paper with a glue/water mixture.


We placed the paper against the bottom of the stone, and worked it thoroughly around the stone, up the edges a bit,

and pressed firmly throughout the bottom of the stone.

So, so, so pretty.


And they feel as lovely as they look!

They could be made into magnets, or a lovely nature game... but for now they'll just sit on our nature table, being touched and admired.

Happy Spring.

Very nice! I had a similar idea recently, but have yet to do it. For my boys I'll call them "dragon tears." xo
