Today I have a fantastic Unicorn Painted Rock Craft Idea to share. Unicorns are a popular phenomenon at the moment, especially for kids and also for adults. In fact, I created a fantastic Unicorn gift guide recently with a few fabulous Unicorn gift ideas for kids.
This, however, is a fun craft you could paint with kids or for kids. It’s super easy and simple and lots of fun. I do hope you enjoy.
Unicorn Painted Rock Craft Idea
This is such a fun painted rock idea to do with your children. I think it would be ideal for a fun kids birthday party, or for an afternoon craft with the children on the weekend.
You could even make these to give as gifts to their friends for a special event or just because!

What you need to make your Unicorn painted rock
One rock stone
1 lead pencil
Paint Tray (optional)
Uni-posca Paint Marker Pen – Medium Point – Set of 15 (PC-5M15C)Margo 30lb. Decorative Pebbles River Rocks Colored Stones Medium Snow White Pebbles 1 in. to 2 in.BIC Pencil Xtra Sparkle Mechanical Pencil, Colorful Barrel, Medium Point (0.7 mm), 48-Count
How to Make a Unicorn Painted Rock
First I drew my Unicorn design on some sketch paper using my Bic Pencil.
I then painted a white background on my rock stone with the white posca pen.
Next, I used my lead pencil to draw the Unicorn onto the rock stone.
I began by painting the Unicorns hoofs yellow, her nose pink and then began adding different Posca paint colours to her main.
I wanted a rainbow Unicorn so used as many bright coloured Posca Pens as I could find. I then added a gold paint for the Unicorns horn.
I always like to outline my rock stone characters with black Posca paint and this is the part I find tricky. I added white to the nose and gave the unicorn an eye.
Finally, I used the Posca pens to add detailed dots and lines to the stone painting.
Then I added black lines to the Unicorns horn and the painting was complete.
Displaying your Painted Rock Craft
I am really pleased with the way this stone turned out. It looks super cute and has been added to my collection. You could easily display these on a shelf, windowsill, or my favorite idea is to add them to your garden as a fun decoration. Remember to add your initials and the date to the back of your rock to remember when you made them.
More Painted Rock Craft Ideas
Next, I am looking at painting some Disney themed Rock stones. I think that would be fun to do for a Disney party or to decorate a kids bedroom that is Disney themed. There are so many amazing painted rock ideas that you can add to your garden!

This unicorn is so cute! I’d love to try it, but I’m sure mine won’t turn out nearly as nice.
Good luck. It is super fun!

You are such a talented artist! The unicorn and peacock rock stones are super cute. This is definitely a project I could try with my 9 year old stepdaughter.
What a lovely thing to say. Have fun with your stepdaughter.
This looks like such a cute idea. Unfortunately, I can’t draw to save my life. My rock would just have to be abstract art. ?
Thankyou so much. I’m not sure I would be good at abstract.
These are so adorable! I wish I could whip something up like this for my neighborhood kids. They’d love to spot these at the park.
Oh thanks. It would be so fun to paint with or for the kids.

Unicorns are definitely the “In” thing at the moment – your design is fab – I’m going to give these a go with my kids, but don’t think they will turn out quite as well as yours!!!
Thanks. It was fun to make the unicorn!

This is so good. I made something similar 15 years ago and it still sitting as an ornament in my living room. So beautiful.
You are such an inspiration with your wonderful collection of rocks I just love your site! You are so talented!
Oh thanks. That is so lovely to hear and such a nice comment. It made my day!
