How To Make Halloween Monster Painted Rocks

Step 1: Clean your rocks to remove dust and dirt. Once your rocks are dry, paint them with various colours of acrylic paint.

I found that holding the bottom of the rock worked well.

I waited for the paint to dry on one end and then painted the rest.

Don’t forget to flip your rock over and paint the back! Most of the rocks needed a few coats of paint.

You can use a hair dryer to speed up the drying process if you wish.

Step 2: Use black paint and a small paintbrush to paint small mouth shapes onto your rock. Let the paint dry.

Step 3: Use a small brush and paint white teeth and red tongues inside your monsters mouths.

Step 4: Glue on googly eyes. If you’re using a strong glue such as E6000, an adult will need to do this step.

The stronger glue will hold up to the elements much better than a white school glue.

If you won’t be hiding your rocks, school glue would be fine. You could also personalise these as you’d like.

Try adding bows for girl rock monsters or yarn hair. The possibilities are endless!

Step 5: Enjoy a fun day outside hiding your rocks at a park.

The kids who find your rocks are going to be super excited!
