Pinterest Inspired Pebbles
OK - so I'm still plugging away at my plethora of pebbles. Today we had a full-blown craft day dedicated to our beach treasures. To be completely honest, I think I was more excited than my kids - I had seen this fabulous rock alphabet on Pinterest, and wanted to recreate it with my own pebbles. This one was done by In The Moment - and I love it!
Today I got to make my own version. After I finished painting the letters on the rocks (my oldest daughter told me it looked like a professional painted them!!!!), I painstakingly painted those tiny little polka dots around the rock with a tooth pick. It took a bit of work, but it made a big difference, so it was worth it. Thank goodness there was a Dora marathon on TV today that kept my three-year old entertained in between painting her pebbles - otherwise I would've never been able to finish my craft. When the rocks were all painted I gave them a spritz of spray laquer, and glue gunned magnets to the back of all the pebbles. I arranged them all on a cookie sheet, added a bow, and Voila!!! I'm soooooo proud of it! I think it would make a GREAT teacher gift ... and my middle daughter has already asked me to make one for her new kindergarten teacher. But this one is ALL mine ... I've never been very good at sharing ...
