Rock Flower Craft

Mar 06, 2015

What You'll Need:

  • Tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • 1" foam brush
  • Smooth rocks
  • Mod Podge
  • Paintbrush
  • Green paint
  • Thin sticks
  • E-6000 glue (available at most crafts stores)
  • Green rafia
  • Small D-rings

What to Do:

1. Create the flowers by cutting approximately ½"-tall petal shapes freehand, leaving the tissue paper in its original fold so that you get multiple petals with one cut. Cut a few of each color for a variety of shapes and sizes.

2. Using a foam brush, coat one side of a rock with a thin layer of Mod Podge; arrange petals on top while it’s still wet. Spread another layer of Mod Podge over the tissue paper. Let everything dry.

3. Paint a stick green for the stem. Once dry, attach to the rock with E-6000 glue.

4. Create leaves by tying a piece of green raffia to the stick.

5. If hanging, glue a small D-ring to the back of the rock with E-6000 glue. Allow the glue to dry completely before displaying.
