Christmas Stones

A lovely festive idea for decoupaging christmas images onto pebbles and stones, or candles and plain soaps, to give as gifts…

(Thanks to Adriana’s Art Studio, for sharing her ideas with us (Adriana’s Art Studio).

INSTRUCTIONS:

You will need:

  1. plain wax candles, soaps and stones
  2. acrylic paints
  3. brushes or decoupage sponges
  4. Pre-cut decoupage images, wrapping paper is a great source of festive images
  5. Mod podge glue
  6. Varnish (for the pebbles if placing them outside)

Wash your stones and let dry. Then add a coat of acrylic paint. Once dry, add your desired image, using the glue to stick it on, and then an extra layer of glue for protection and as a form of varnish. For a personalised touch, print residents pictures and decorate stones, a perfect gift for their loved one.
