Watermelon Rocks!

Warning... These rocks will make you hungry for some delicious watermelon!

Painting rocks is the new trend going on everywhere. People are painting rocks and hiding them as a kindness project. Think about how happy you would be just walking through a park and find a painted rock with an inspirational phrase or beautiful art. Watermelon rocks are perfect if you want to paint something easy and adorable. You can choose to hide them for someone else to find or have cute little watermelons surrounding your garden or how about a paperweight for mom or dad's desk. If you never painted rocks before make sure you check out my Rock Painting 101 article and post your pictures on our Facebook page: @brittscreativecrafts.
