Tutorial: How to Make a Rock Painting Kit in a Jar
- Gather your supplies – listed and shown above.
- Using white acrylic craft paint, paint one side of the rocks white. Smooth rocks work best.
- Let the paint dry completely. Apply a second coat if necessary, and let dry.
- Fill the bottom of a large Ball mason jar with the painted rocks.
- Add assorted colors of Sharpie markers to the jar, and place lid on top.
- Tie ribbon and decorative twine around the neck of the jar. Decorate with a small Christmas ornament if desired.
Since the rocks are already painted white, your recipient can easily decorate their rocks with the Sharpie markers. The creative possibilities are endless!
