How adorable is this rock? It is not any ordinary rock. It is a special holiday hand-painted and button embellished rock that we use to hold the door open. It is a rock with a message and a purpose.
I hand painted the tree on the big heavy rock with Americana paints by Deco-Art. I love these paints because they are thick enough that when I paint on a rough surface with a slant they don’t run.
I think these rocks would be adorable in all sizes and shapes as door holders and spreaders of Christmas spirit. I plan to paint a bunch of little ones with messages to hand out over the next few weeks at the Starbucks drive through and the bank and to people I meet while out on my daily adventures. Here are some of the messages I plan to use:
- Spread Cheer
- Joy to the World
- Follow the Star
- Christmas is Love
Here is the rock hard at work, holding the door to my bedroom open so our puppy won’t play with it and close herself out.
I can’t wait to make more. This little quick project was really fun.
Happy Creating Holiday Magic!
