Rock painting is great way to start painting if you haven’t painted before. Painting on a smaller surface is less intimidating than a larger surface like on canvas.

The best part about painting rocks, is that it’s easy on your wallet! You can go on a rock hunt in your backyard or buy some from a garden center or even online. Craft paint is cheap and that’s all you really need to get started. But you can also use paint pens, which make writing words on rocks easy.

  • Rocks
  • Craft Paint

  • Jar of Water


    1. Make sure your rocks are clean and free of debris.
    2. You may choose to prime your rocks with a paint primer. We chose white.
    3. With a pencil, trace out the shapes of the hearts on the rocks. You can add more than one if your rock is large enough. 3
    4. Color the hearts in light, bright colors. The lighter colors should be the “main” color of the hearts. The darker colors will be used to highlight. 2
    5. Use complementing darker colors to outline the hearts. For example, if you colored a heart in light blue, use dark blue to outline the heart. Make one side a little thicker so it looks more three-dimensional.
    6. With the same darker color, write a phrase in the middle of the heart. candy heart painted rocks
    7. Spray with sealant to complete the rocks. Easy as pie!
