Christmas Painted Rocks
My kids were kind of obsessed when we started using our pencil erasers to make dotted rocks… ok, I was a bit too.
So as the seasons change I knew I could use this same process to create holly for our Christmas painted rocks!

How to make Christmas Easy Painted Rocks
Check out these step by step instructions for creating these Christmas painted rocks. Then see it all in action in the quick video below.
Start by giving your rocks a base coat. The white under your holly will help the colors pop.
If you are adding words I suggest doing this before the holly.
It is much easier to work around the letters than adding them after.
Now for adding the holly. Take the eraser end of a pencil and carefully create a leaf shape using an Exacto knife. *This step is for the adults only!*
Then cut into the side to remove the extra eraser leaving a leaf-shaped stamp.

With a second pencil, you can use a pencil sharpener to make the circle smaller for the berries.
Dab the eraser in a thin layer of paint so you don’t get too much on the side.
I have the kids practice a few times on a piece of paper until they see how it will work. Add little clusters of leaves all around the rocks.
Once they dry a bit, start adding the berries.
These look so cute and are a great way to add a touch of holiday cheer anywhere around the house or use them for some holiday rock hunting! They also make a great kid-made gift!
